473 ml can served cold into an MGD pint glass. Thanks to John for giving me an extra. I'm actually kind of terrified to see what this exactly is.Canadian version advertised as 6.0% ABV. Whether that makes it more palatable or not remains to be seen.

Appearance - Fluorescent, glow-in the dark pink, that looks fairly red in certain lights. Somewhat hazy, absolutely no head poured and decent amount of lively bubble action.

Smell - Artificial lime and strawberry all the way. I can almost taste how sticky this is going to be through my nose. Nothing offensive, just artificial.

Taste - Artificial strawberry with a health dose of lime (which may be artificial as well). The sour lime actually cuts through the otherwise ridiculous level of sweetness quite nicely. Still too sweet. After a few sips and you mouth is numb with sweetness, I taste virtually nothing.

Mouthfeel - Highly carbonated, gassy, body is too heavy and sticky. Drinks like a heavily carbonated cooler or a Mike's Hard Lemonade.

Overall - Expectations were low and I won't finish the glass because of the crazy sweetness which starts getting to you after a few sips, but my low expectations were actually met and slightly exceeded with the end result. Bud Lime Straw-Ber-Ita - could've been so much worse.

Clear light red. White head.
Smell of strawberries. Sugar. Alcohol
Taste is the same as the smell. Very sweet. Feel is high carbonation. Boozy.

Did not like.

This was a challenge to get down. That's not a lie. Consumed from the 25 Oz. can. Pours an electric pink/red. Fake strawberries in the nose. Taste is cheap rotgut booze. This was very cloying, perhaps too much. I nearly vomited while consuming this. Pass.

Sampled last Thursday night on 12/17/15. Single 8-ounce can chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a vintage 10 ounce "Bud" glass.

Brew pours a light red in color with a thin pink head that fakes away fast. No lacing is seen to mentioned. Aroma is of alcohol and strawberries since it is 8% AVB. Pretty much can be said for the taste. Lighter-bodied with good carbonation. Goes down fast and easy and a good drink for a fast buzz if that is what you are looking for.
