4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
I LOVE THIS BEER!! I have been asked many times what kind of beer Iím drinking. The thing behind the this is that, TONS of New Mexicanís like it because of the spice, the hint of lime and the splash of clamato it has. For most itís probably NOT going to be for you.
But if one is going to venture for a new drink, this one is IT!! Very refreshing and smooth. Again, if you donít like it Iím assuming your the type that goes to a Mexican Restraunt and orders "GREEN ON THE SIDE" ...break out and try something new. itís hot and smooth, great taste!!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2016 25 oz can. Ocassion, I hate my job.
Pours a red, tomato juice color. Aggressive pour, lots of head. No retention, some lacing at the tip top.
Aroma is of tomato, and salt. The head had good aromas of salt, lime and chili that the beer does not.
Taste is tomato and spicy. Thatís about all. Not so much lime, yeah some salt. But itís actually tasty. Like a very light bloody mary.
Mouthfeel is medium, and also watery. It tastes like it should be heavier in body and higher ABV, only 4.2%, really? Has a pleasing tingling burn after the swalow.
Overall, itís not bad. I probably will not drink it again, but Iíll try more in the style.
Iíve read some of the reviews here, and seriously. Itís...not...that...bad....My first couple of sips were terrible too, because I wasnít quite expecting it to be so tomato. But my palate adjusted, and boom, Iím drinking it and liking it. Open your minds, give it another try.
Update! Iím lowering my rating a little, because the tomato in this is very heavy. 25 oz of this is too much. Still pretty good!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a golden reddish yellow. Aromas of grass, malts, and a touch of briney tomato. Flavor is briney, tomato, cheap lager...but I love me some red beer.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Itís an average chelada brew. Big tomato presence, salty, and looks like puke as always. Hereís a hint: add a shot of vodka or tequila for an extra kick and some flavor

Heinous, putrid aroma. Weak pinkish, scary appearance. Ocean water, funk and clam taste.. light spice. Itís so bad.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
This stuff is awful...but I was expecting worse. +++ Sampled from a 16 oz can this beer poured a fizzy and murky red-pink color with a large foamy orange head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was bad marinara, pepper and clam. The flavor was fizzy watered down tomato juice with strong ground pepper and a bit of clam. Regrettably long finish. Light body. Awful.

Backlog from Brony Bottle Share at Travlrís. This is just absolutely horrible. I would rather drink dishwater.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
25 fl. oz. can bought from a gas station in Santa Fe and shared with aperi, many thanks for drinking half of it! Pours opaque red with no head and salt sticking to the sides of the glass. Aroma is salty tomato juice and lime. Flavor is quite disgusting too. Tomato juice, loads of salt and some lime. No hint of beer, but thatís hardly a surprise as bud light doesnít deserve the moniker. I had to think hard to find one attribute to raise above 1.
