US brewer Anheuser-Busch is launching Bud Light Lime - a "crisp light" lager that combines the "drinkability" of Bud Light with a splash of natural lime flavour.

Bud Light Lime, to be rolled out this week, is about "pure outdoor refreshment," said Rick Leininger, Bud Light director. "With its distinct lime aroma and taste, Bud Light Lime makes it feel like summertime no matter what season it is."

Brewed at Anheuser-Busch's Baldwinsville, Fort Collins and Cartersville breweries, Bud Light Lime contains 4.2% alcohol by volume (also available in 3.2% ABW) and is available in 12oz, clear glass bottles, 22oz single-serve bottles and 16oz aluminium bottles.
