PorterPounder (5713) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2007
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 - shouldn’t like it but I do!.

[24fl oz bottle, courtesy of cgarvieuk] Opaque pinkish red. Smells like cheap pasta sauce. Sweet tomato. Thin. Tastes the same as the Bud Clamato. Slightly spicy. Bemused by all the ’this tastes like vomit in my mouth’ comments – it doesn’t really. Just tastes of budget tomato sauce. It doesn’t taste like a beer of course, but as a ’drink’ I’ve had far, far worse – although I draw the line at vomit [06072012]

I know its only certain parts of the country do bloody beers, but every now and again I crave one. I got this free from work to fill that craving. Tastes just like it should. Light beer mixed with clamato and a lil pepper with lime and salt. Just throw in a pickle and some olives and its a saturday morning with burgers!

If you love clamato, drink this! That’s 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.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 7, 2007
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.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2007
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.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - APR 7, 2008
UPDATED: APR 8, 2008 710 ml. can, coded freshness date on the bottom of the can, pouring suggestion above the list of ingredients and trademarks, sampled in an old Budweiser lager/pilsener glass that I purchased at a yard sale a couple of years ago. L: Cloudy appearance and, well, I thought the body looks exactly like homemade Texas Ruby Red grapefruit juice, thick with plenty of pulp. Fluffy, foamy pinkish head that rose quickly and fell even faster, splotchy lace dots ring the top of the glass. After about a minute the head completely disappears, not even a fine line circling the glass is evident. I don’t find this repulsive looking, but the lack of any head retention on a light beer with an low ABV is a bit disconcerting. Makes me doubt this will retain any beer-like qualities. S: Mildly spicy clamato juice, tomato juice and clam broth, traces of black pepper, salt and a bare hint of lime. Nothing in the way of any pale macro lager scents. F&T: If you have ever tried Mott’s Clamato Juice, then the mouthfeel and taste will be of no surprise to you. The body is oily thick like clamato juice, quite slick on the tongue and the spicy flavor really sticks to the sides of the palate. The fizzy carbonation is the only recognizable Bud Light element this possesses. Any Bud Light tastes that might be detected are completely overwhelmed by the clamato juice. All the mass produced clamato juice flavors are present, tomato juice mixed with peppery Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce and spicy clam broth with a dash of lime juice. Towards the end a mineral salty bitterness comes out, adding a touch of dryness to mildly hot clamato juice. My girlfriend pick this up tonight after hearing a work mate talk about having it at a local Crazy Wings. I thought this was going to be awful, but it is actually not that bad. An acquired taste, yes, but worth a try.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2009
Marketed for the Hispanic crowd I guess since Spanish is the first listed language on this can. Pours a weird thin tomato juice red with a very fizzy loose white carbonation that dies instantly. Pepper, clam juice, tomato aroma. Not bad, not beer. Taste is big peppery clam juice, tomato juice, salt, citrus...again it isn’t the worst thing ever, but just drink a bloody mary and get smashed a lot quicker.

harrisoni (14141) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2010
Can at ChrisO "I’m Trying to see the Stool" pre GBBF2010 tasting. Orange red pink colour. Tomato juice aroma. Some toms, some clams in the flavour. Some Worcstershire sauce. OK and no way as bad as people claimed. I mean it’s not a beer, but as a drink it’s ok. The pale lager is really subsumed by the other stronger flavours.

(can 12/21/10). Cloudy pink color. Spare off white head. Light tomato juice aroma with very light spice. Flavor of the same with light citrus. Slick texture. Moderate carbonation. Spare lacing.
