I am willing to admit publicly that I tried this. It was from my wife’s tallboy. Red with strawberry everything. Almost pulpy. If chicks like it then it has strategic value. Not much beer value, though.

I still like the Cheladas. I could pretend to like the lime but I still have cans of this in the fridge from a birthday party 4 months ago. Better over ice but it’s a cooler.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pinkish red with a fizzy carbonation like soda. Smells like Budweisers version of strawberry artificial flavoring. Tastes of the same with light artificial strawberry flavoring with a hint if light lime and a touch of margarita mixer. Honestly, the non-strawberry version is way better. This is like Bud Light’s flavored wine cooler.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can. Pours a red/pink fizzy, no head. Sweet artificial strawberry flavoring, a bit of lime, nasty chemical flavoring, and cheap malt liquor booze. Blech pretty bad.

Tall boy, Shell Station. Misty, bright coral colored, next to no head. Bad can. Smells like Tahitian Treat. An interesting flavor, relative to the smell -- very sweet, a little saline, a little musky, some cactus/veggie notes. Warming. Clingy, syrupy body with a strawberry jam aftertaste. I’m not sure where the line is between beer and shandy and alcopop, but this is swerving near it.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours liquid-candy red with a quick, hot pink head.
Taste is sweet, syrupy, sugary strawberry...and little else.
Any beer or tequila notions are deeply buried.
Sure to become a big hit at underage parties....

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours clear red with small pink head that diminishes to nothing. Aroma of strawberry and booze. Thin mouthfeel with acidic strawberry flavor and more like a boozy strawberry soda. Oddly refreshing

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can. Pours bright, strawberry red with hardly a trace of head. Aroma is strawberry margarita, salt, lime, and slight funk. Flavor is just what you would expect and its not good.
