Pours a cloudy off-white with a greenish hue. Fake lime dominates the nose and flavor. The body is light and this offering is dangerously drinkable at 8% ABV.

This is very hard to rate because it is not really beer. Rather, I'd call it a malt cocktail.

Possibly the worst 'beer' I have ever had the unfortunate experience of coming across.

One of ugliest human beings of all time brings this to me. The liquid looked like it had alka seltzer in it. A hazy green and white, aspirin decanted and dumped into a solution, no head on it. Turrible. Disgusting gaped out girl is like 'you said you wanted to try it.' Funny, you say that to all the guys.

I explained I figured I'd already be hammered when I tried it, not in a recovery period from the previous weekend.

Aroma of bad tequila margarita. Smelled like it was as strong as shine. Wanted to vomit smelling it. Tasting it. Thinking of it. So much carbonation, like Bud Light. The worst.

Sickly sweet, cavity inducing twanging sweetness. Wanna get messed up, drink these beers. If you are looking for flavor and goodness, seek salvation other where.

Straight out the can, didn't get a look at the color.

Smells of sour mix and lime juice. Basically tastes like a carbonated lime flavored margarita. I get lime but no salt. Sweet as hell, tons of sugar in this. No beer flavor whatsoever.

Good carbonation, thin body.

Overall there's really nothing offensive about this beer. No booze, no off flavors. Although the sweetness can be off-putting if you're not into that sort of thing. I drink this from time to time.

Seriously awful stuff. There's a touch of lime up front, followed by the terrible flavor of Bud Light fighting for breathing room, and finished with a kiss of the world's worst tequila.

At 8%, this clearly exists only to get college students drunk fast and on the cheap. This barely qualifies as a beer, and certainly ranks near the top of the list of brews you should never put into your mouth.

Not a bad tasting cocktail, but I don't consider it a beer. One 8 oz. can of this is plenty.

Using the Begnel formula, the Alcohol Score is 8 oz. x 8.0% = 64, or 1.3 Bud Lights. For the 25 oz. can, the score is 200, or a whopping 4.0 Bud Lights!
