SUMMER BEERS.

It's no secret I love beers. And, I really love seasonal beers (See all the pumpkin beers I love). I apparently missed that Spring beer selection, but trust me, I've got summer covered.

1)
Lime-A-Rita
Don't let the "Bud Light" part scare you. This is actually incredibly refreshing. The cans are a little small, but with 8% alcohol, who really cares? I don't really taste the beer part of it. Pro-Tip: Put it over ice. It tastes better. There's also a Strawberry version that is heavenly -- and I don't even like strawberries.
RATING: 10/10. Delicious, refreshing. Perfect for sitting on the patio during the summer.

2)
Angry Orchard Apple Ginger Cider
So, this one isn't a beer, but it has alcohol. And, maybe you can tell by my face that I wasn't feeling this one. At all. I love Angry Orchard Cider (Or, as I call it, Angry Birds!). So, when I saw a variety pack, I immediately picked it up. I took one sip and thought, "What the hell is this?" It was terrible. Awful. So, I made my boyfriend finish it.
RATING: 0/10. Stick to the original.

3)
Leinenkugel Summer Shandy
This is beer and lemonade mixed together. What could go wrong? Nothing. I absolutely adore this beer and I've grabbed a few six packs after work so far. I tried it last year for the first time and I was so excited for it to return to me this summer.
RATING: 10/10. Super refreshing.

4)
Blue Moon Agave Nectar Ale
This was hyped up to me. I had a few different people tell me, "This is the best summer beer. You have to try it." I kept forgetting to grab a summer variety pack of Blue Moon from the store, but at a recent party, I saw a bottle and grabbed it. I was so excited and when I took that first sip, my first reaction was "Oh." It tastes just like any old boring beer. There is no sweetness like I anticipated. I couldn't even finish it.
RATING: 1/10. Boring. Not worth the money.

I love trying new beers. What summer beers should I go out and get? Let me know in the comments.

Cheers!

Haven't had the regular lime-a-rita, I did have the straw-ber-rita though and it was awesome. You have to try some of the island lagers by kona brewery (if they have it in your area.) My husband and I love them!

I think the Straw-ber-rita is so much better and I cannot stand strawberries. I will definitely have to check it out. I've added it to a note on my phone. Thank you!

Dropping in by way of a link up--- I love this post! What's funny to me is that the first couple times I had the lime-a-rita, I hated it. No one told me it was to be served over ice. My best friend brought over the strawberry-rita the other day and put it over ice and it was awesome!! Then the company started airing the commercials that advised how it's supposed to be done. I'm old school when it comes to beer-- I like PBR, Miller Lite, and Bud Light. I'm not too picky as long as it isn't too terribly dark. We have a few bars right down the street that serve about 115 different beers and I go in and get the same thing every time-- I know, I'm a loser.
