Bud Light Lime Mojito from Anheuser-Busch InBev pours a pale golden yellow color with a large, spongy white head that burns off within a few minutes, leaving a bubbly collar. Lime and mint battle for a stranglehold on the aroma of this flavoured light lager, with a faint sweet malt smell coming through behind them. The soft mint and sharp lime smells actually complement each other nicely.
The combination of lime and mint flavours in Bud Light Lime Mojito is however, for lack of a better word, gross. This beer tastes like someone tossed a couple of pre-chewed sticks of gum or a splash of mouthwash in my glass. It is thin-bodied with ample carbonation and quite syrupy on the tongue. The finish has a subtle tart bite to it, but the lingering mint flavour in the aftertaste reminds me of a menthol cigarette.
The can that Bud Light Lime Mojito comes in is basic silver, with a two-toned green logo and swirl around the top of the can. You will find a cryptic date code stamped on the bottom.
Some flavoured light beers, including Bud Light Lime can be tolerable under the right conditions; however this “limited edition” monstrosity should have never seen the light of a patio. Though the label states that it is brewed with natural flavours, in practice Bud Light Lime Mojito tastes anything but.
You can find Bud Light Lime Mojito at many The Beer Store and select LCBO outlets locations here in Ontario, as well as at stores across Canada.
