Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita brewed by Anheuser-Busch, with an ABV of 8.0%. This brew pours out a nice red color with a small pink head. The head to this brew goes away fast. The smell is sweet with strawberries an alcohol. No hops,malts or grains in the smell of this brew. Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita is not your typical beer. This brew has an high ABV with lots of sugars. However the smell is really inviting. Now for the taste of this brew, it is sweet and sour, with strawberries. I will say this, it is different from most brews on the market today. It puts you in the mind of soda/pop with alcohol. It is a real refreshing ,drinking brew. You really can't pick up on the 8.0% ABV in this brew. I would buy this brew when, I'm in the mood for something different than your typical beer. The mouth feel is bold with flavors. Anheuser-Busch , did a nice job with this one. Overall I'm giving Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita a soild 4 out 5. I would buy this brew again.
Some would not considered this to be beer, however is a smooth brew to drink.

Pours an opaque red color with no head whatsoever. Looks like kook aid. Smells like artificially sweetened strawberry margarita. Taste isn't to bad for a margarita, but this is beer so, it just doesn't fit. Goes down a little harsh. Probably because it's more of a cocktail than beer. Overall this is crap. The can says artificial sweeteners and artificial colors. No beer should ever have either of these.

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!

This is like drinking Jell-o before it hardens, with Vodka mixed in.

8oz can from the store down the street.
Lightly hazy reddish pink color with a light pink head that dissipates almost instantly. Artificial strawberry aroma and flavor dominate this "beer." Light salt and sour mix make up the rest of this. It ain't beer but I think it succeeded in what it set out to imitate.

25oz can poured into a pint glass

A- pours a hazy pinkish red color with a fizzy white head that disappears completely, looking exactly like a strawberry soda

S- strawberry soda and alcohol, not much else to say

T- artificial strawberry soda loaded with sugar and alcohol, pretty much tastes like a wine cooler

M- watery mouthfeel and carbonation leads to a spritz body and finish

O- how can this be considered beer? This is a wine cooler, disguised as a beer

Got one last summer on a whim from the $1 bin at Kroger to go with Mexican take out. It's strawberry malt liquor. Do with that what you want. I assume people usually drink these to get drunk, tasted like liquid strawberry slurpee with alcohol.
