0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Pours like a "girlie" mixed drink. Smells, and tastes like crap. Holy wow this is bad. Salty, fizzy, low quality V8 juice. Horrible.

Can... Itís basically a Red Eye made with Clamato instead of straight tomato juice. I like to drink Red Eyes when I tailgate and cheap pale lager is all thatís available. I would have scored this one higher if it didnít have the shelfish juice and other spices in there. I like my Red Eye with straight-up tomato juice.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Meaty, Worchestershire sauce aroma. Almost opaque, blood-in-the-water red with bits of detritus. Maybe this is a shade better than the Light version - a little less fizzy, a little more body, pepper didnít seem as obvious. Briny. I still think the best use for this is as a beef marinade - or maybe a chicken loco injection. Again, this severely stretches the notion of beer and rating beer. As a Bloody Mary, itís not bad -- but then I hate Bloody Marys. Maybe one day Iíll be pleasantly surprised to find that AB is shipping an decent nitro bitter to Minit Marts in 20 oz cans.

24 oz. can. Looks like bloody toilet water. Thick head when you pour that fade into nothing in record time. Nose-lime, salty, old mushy tomatoes, cheap beer. Taste-salty, rotten veggies, celery seed, light Cajun spice, prickly CO2, warms going down, watered down bloody mary mix, unacdidic lime juice, meaty, light worstecher sauce, Odd and unique, Not an everyday drinker or special but not awful.

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Aroma that of a bad bloody mary mix with a hint of stale beer. Looks like a childís vomit. Taste? Old tomato paste with water, the Bud comes through on the finish. I mixed in some vodka with this and it was at least drinkable, but by doing so I broke the cardinal rule of beer- having to add something to make it drinkable.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cloudy red body, similar to grapefruit juice. No head. Highly carbonated. Sweet tomato aroma. Sweet tomato flavor with a medium full body. No real hints of bud, but a bit more body than the light version.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
22 oz. can sampled courtesy of maniac at an impromptu tasting. Very, very much like the Bud Light version. Hazy pink grapefruit juice color, perhaps a bit darker. Fizzy head dies immediately. Tomato and faint clam aroma, a bit of pepper. Tastes like fizzy clamato. Slightly "fuller" in body than the Light version, and the carbonation is not quite as grating. Unfortunately, as it warmed, the beer itself began to make itself known. Not a good thing, but this is half passable when ice cold.

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 - but unlike the Bud Light Chelada - the tomatoes are a bit more rancid. Salty, spicy flavor, some spicy Bloody Mary mix, hint of 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. Actually liked the Bud Light Chelada a tad better. Would drink this in the morning after an all nighter...

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can. Honestly I expected this to be worse than Miller Chill... itís not. Better. Marginally so, but better. Smells like a watered down Bloody Mary. Sweet tomato juice with some celery salt and black pepper. Pours cloudy ruby pink. Fairly sweet and watery on the palate. Just a hint of tomato and more celery salt. The beer aspect takes a back seat on this one and only comes through on the finish. Not the worst beer ever...

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
At first, this one isnít that bad in a watered down bloody mary sorta way. I ended up adding some hot sauce to give it some kick but that didnít save it. In the end, I couldnít finish it. Interesting phenomenon though.
