Bud Light Lime Lemon-ade-Rita

This ultra “limited summer edition” doesn’t come out for a few more weeks but someone didn’t get the InBev memo @ my local gas station. First review on RateBeer. woot! I’m sure we’re all stoked to see what I thought about this one. Before you read on, I should note that I actually really like the Bud Light Rita series. I think I gave mango a 4/5


   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
Picked this up at Jake’s Market & Deli – Lebanon, NH. It was $2.99 for a 25 ounce can. Split 2 ways after work a whole 3 weeks before this is released to the public. Ultra Rare Malt Liquor ticks!!!!! Enjoyed at 55F in stemware. I’m a huge fan of the rita beers.

A – Pours a 2 finger solid white fizzy head that fades fast. Looks like lemonade in the glass. cloudy light yellow, white and very lemonjuice-like.

S – Nose is a sweet state fair lemonade affair with a little bit of plastic, maybe that’s just the ethanol speaking to me.

T – Pretty much as straight up clone of Minute Maid Lemonade with a boozy middle and finish. The lingering finish is a honeydew melon and strawberry. Not as sour as I would hope for lemon. still getting that plastic taste. Sweetness is nice. I can certainly chug this on a hot day.

M – Decent mouthfeel, a bit oily.

O – Yeah, this is not my favorite in the rita category but certainly better than mango.
