1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
24oz can, Born 14SEP07. The color of hazy ruby red grapefruit juice and a minimal quickly fading off-white head. Aroma of tomato juice and lemon lime soda. There was also some light garbage juice. Flavor is sweet tomato juice and lemon lime soda again. Slightly salty as well with no bitterness, no beer notes to be had at all. Light to moderate carbonation with a light body. This was a horrible idea.

24 oz can. Tomato and clam juice with just a hint of skunky malt. Cloudy orange red color with no head (at least the bud chelada had that). Tomato and clam juice flavor with more of a skunky malt flavor. I agree with IrishBoy -like you had drank a Budweiser Chelada on a empty stomach and vomited it back up.

0.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
24 oz can from Country Club Liquors; I had rated this but it disappeared, so i will torture myself and drink an ounce to rerate; that way my friends can’t suggest it for big milestones. Nose of Clamato, spicy and tomatoey with only slight hints of the beer. Smells OK. Color is hazy raspberry with a medium pink tinged head; flavor of pink vomit, like I had swallowed a can of Clamato and reguritated it. Spicy but slightly sour and horrible. I like Clamato, but this is bad!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours to a cloudy, pinkish-red colored body with a small pink, bubbly and quickly falling head. The aroma shows some tomato, clam juice, salty seawater, and some very mild scents of sweet pale malt & corn syrup. Taste shows some salty tomato juice, clam juice, and hints of lightly sweet pale malt, corn syrup, light hints of black pepper, and seems to have a bit of hot peppers somewhere in the background. Medium bodied, medium carbonated, this one tastes essentially the same as the regular Bud version...

Why do I do this to myself? This one’s even worse than the other one! Sip, sip, pour. Keep it moving.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
At first, I thought that this was a coup d’etat attempt to dethrone Tequiza for ’Worst AB Flavored-Beer Send Up’. Then I thought - tomatoes, beer -- it’s marinade at the mini-mart!. Seriously, though, this stretches the scope and breadth of what I throw under the ’beer’ umbrella. Smells like V8 - savory. A festive coloring, a bad can. Salty, tomato-y, cayenne pepper burn. Can’t really comment on hops, malting or yeast. I could see swigging this on a stolen day off at the beach, I could see this as canned hair-of-the-dog. This is a tomato shandy, and an attempt to sell Bloody Mary’s at the Qwik Stop. Though this tastes better, in an absolute sense, than say King Cobra, I can’t help but think that I’d drink a cheap malt liquor first when I had a taste for ’beer’. Can’t wait for the fully-leaded Bud version of this.

24oz can. Yuck! Bud Light has taken a traditional mexican drink and butchered it! This tastes horrible, very sour. No bueno

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
24 oz. can. Much much lighter than the Bud Chelada. Cloudy dark honey body with no head. Nose-smells just like bloody mary mix. Taste-simple: tastes like beer and bloody mary mix mixed together. Tastes just like the Bud Chelada but without as much lime and salt. Light bile, effervescent, very bright tasting with some good meaty flavors, worstecher sauce, dry fruit. Better than the Bud Chelada.

Just had the Bud version, and wasn’t impressed. Appearance and aroma the same- child vomit look with stale bloody mary smell. Less pronounced tomato paste taste, less beer finish. If I wanted a half ass bloody mary, I would get one. Whatever you are, meet Mr. Drain.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cloudy red body roughly the color of grapefruit juice. No head. Highly carbonated fizz. Aroma of tomato juice. Sweet tomato juice flavor, with no real hints of the underlying bud light.
