Tasting at local liquor store. Comes clear pink with no head at all. Aroma of strawberries and a touch of lime. Taste is strawberries. Didn’t notice any beer or alcohol. Can’t believe it is 8%.

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.

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.

Big ass can from local deli in Times Square. Bit weird but in a good way, refreshing on a stinking hot day.

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.

can. Red with small head. Strawberry alco-pop. Tastes just like a strawberry margarita, which is to say there’s nothing beer-like about it.

Small sample from a small can. Big strawberry, sugary sweet aroma, not bad. The flavor is worse, mega sweet, sugary, fruity garbage juice. Pretty hard to drink this boost.

8 ounce can shared with drsilverworm. Pours a really bright pink with no head. The aroma is like Hi-C fruit punch. I get some tropicana orange juice as well. Sugary mouthfeel. High carbonation.

This was inflected on at an esbls tasting. This is really not very good. It i too sweet and the alcohol does this no favors. I guess somebody must like this. Not me.
