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 wasnít 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.

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.

"Thanks" to maniac for providing this delightful 22 oz. can for sampling. Hazy pink grapefruit juice color, perhaps a bit darker, fizzy head lasted about 3 seconds. Tomato and faint clam aroma, a bit of pepper. Tastes like fizzy Clamato. Very harsh bite of carbonation at the end. Not as bad as I was fearing, drinkable actually.

on no, now the light, no difference what so ever! Smells like a flat beery bloody mary .... looks like pink girly tomato juice and old hazy kool aid ... oily and disturbing... The taste is manageable but after afew gulps it becomes a horrid mess that hurts to drink, iíve had malt liquors that have been more painful to drink but this is up there... pass on this if you are half way normal, but if you like tomato juice,and you are a fatty, give it a shot, you might like it you sicko!

Tallahassee, Fl. - Circle K convenience store - 24 oz can. Pinkish, Red - Orange fizzy pour with no head. Aroma is that of a Bloody Mary with hints of clam juice. Salty flavor, spicy V-8 tomato juice, some clam juice as it first hits the tongue. If I had a stick of celery, I could swear this was a Bloody Mary. Thickish mouthfeel. Would be a good morning after pick me-up. Kind of a guilty pleasure - shouldnít like it but I do!.

Dark pink with no head but I wasnt expecting one anyway.
Light aroma of spice and tomato juice.
flavor is rich, spicy, tomato and hot sauce.
Should be in a smaller can.
Much better to drink first thing in the morning.

If you love clamato, drink this! Thatís all it tastes like. No beer flavor here whatsoever. Fortunately, I do like clamato, but this is just a bit too much. Just a splash in your beer is much better.

Why did I do this? At least I arrested myself from chugging down 12 oz. of this for $10. Fantastically unappealing milky pink/orange/coral color. Aroma of tomatoes, chalk, steel and pepper. Very sweet, somewhat salty flavor. Overripe tomatoes wedged into a chalky consistency. Surprisingly spicy, lip-burning and metallic. Not good. Not good at all.
