This is a party drink, you only break these out if you're trying to get drunk. Very sugary, makes your teeth feel gritty.

24 Oz Can poured into glass
Look - Pinkish red cloudy. No foam or lacing.
Smell - Identical aroma to Mountain Dew Code Red.
Taste - I bought this to give it a try because i like margaritas. This doesn't taste like a margarita and is too carbonated to even remotely be similar. I knew it would be not like a authentic margarita but it isn't close enough. It tastes like mountain dew soda, can't even pick up the alcohol. The sweetness level is nuts. It needs more lime or strawberry flavor and less sugar. The only real fruit flavor is cherry.

Well live and learn, won't be messing with this mess of a beverage again. Should have known better. Grade is D-

I love everything about the Straw-Ber-Rita drink. The sweet smell, sweet-yet tart flavor and pleasant color. I am totally hooked on the taste and relaxed feeling I get after drinking a couple small cans or one big can. I love the Lime and pineapple flavors of this too. Not so much the mango. For the record, if I wanted a regular non sweetened tasting beer, I'd go for Samuel Adams Lager, though the original Bud Light is acceptable too.

My spouse bought a case of this for a guest who was staying with us, thinking she might like it. She didn't. I had one. It was awful. After this stuff sat ignored in our fridge for awhile, we gave it to a neighbor who drinks a lot of Bud Light. Later we discovered a fugitive can in the back of the fridge. We threw it out. Good riddance.

I can't believe there is a market for this swill. Horrible.

Poured from the can into a Budweiser pilsner glass.

A giant bit of fizz, with a fast dissolving and noisy pink/purple like head. No puck or collar, and some very fast soda cabonation. Body color is a neon Hawaiian Punch color, a sort of dark neon pink and red.

The aroma is just massive as soon as the can is opened. It smells like Hawaiian Punch and incredibly sticky sweet. There is to credit though a mix of rock salt and lime giving off the instant margarita in a slushy machine vibe so it's at least true to form.

Palate is a bit of a surprise. Slight syrup but not totally in feel. Touches of boozy fruit strawberry, and a bit of sugar but not horribly. Lime tang a bit in the mid palate that makes for a good contrast to the non strawberry sweetness. Once again, alcohol goes right into your gut and system.

This was one of the more enjoyable ones of the series I had, but it comes with the usual and obvious faults. Can't see myself having more than 2 of these in a sitting and enjoying myself.

Bought a 25oz can $2.99 Marukai
Smells like strawberry Jello
Bright pink-red color
Medium carbonation
Medium syrupy mouthfeel
Taste like strawberry jello with an alcohol aftertaste, Overly sweet
Overall not for me. I don't know why this would be considered a beer. It has nothing to do with Bud Light.

My wife keeps purchasing this and figured I'd give it a try. Very light pink in color. Has a very fruity sugary smell. Very strong alcohol taste and very fruity.
