1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
24 oz. can. Pours a fizzy, minimal, very short lived off white head, over a light red (SRM 15) cloudy body.....nose is tomato....taste is tomato, clam, light salt, lime, with a light chile heat.....mouth feel is light, carbonation makes a fizzy sensation. This is to beer, as 7-UP is to beer. That is to say unrelated. This concoction, thought of as something to have on a hot Utah day, is quite pleasant. So are iced tea and lemonade. To call this a beer, well, no. It is a cocktail. Rating as a beer not as a beverage. BJCP 4/1/8/3/3

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Canned @ home picked up at 287 Liquor Fort Collins and poured into my Crooked Staved sniftered. Pours a hazy pink lemonade appearance with no head and kind of weird lacing. Chili powder, celery, V8, homemade chili aroma. Not really offensive but not very beery either. Salty, tomato juice, chili powder, veggie, a bit juicy, spicy flavor. I canít finish more than a few ounces and I canít imagine how much I would have to be paid to drink a full 24 canned beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
I donít understand the reviewers here.....are you comparing this to Orval or Ayinger or Lagunitas? Get real folks.....review it in the context of what it is.....and thatís a first beverage after working or hunting hard plus or minus being followed by an evening consuming your favorite quaff. Even better, have one or two in the morning after a looooong night out and youíll thank me profusely. I was skeptical before I tried it but have since converted a pile of would-be haters into pleasantly surprised Chelada enthusiasts. Itís like a Bloody Mary but nowhere near as thick or juicy which is exactly what I donít like about them. Try it without prejudice....and youíll love it!

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2013 This is the only bud product I can stomach. The clamato flavor really comes through. Better to make your own chelada but this is decent on a hot day, especially if you have no craft options at the mini-mart

Pours a fizzy pink grapefruit color. Smells like a salty V8. Gross taste of V8. I could choke this down if I had to but I wouldnít enjoy it.

Can. I am a big fan of bloody maryís but this stuff is putrid. Take a perfectly good and consistent American pale lager and add some 2 year aged V8 and some clam juice and voila, you have this shit.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2012 From 24oz tin in my hotel in San Francisco,16/08/12. Headless pink-red. Aroma of raw mince and herbs. Fizzy with an obvious salty tomato tang. More TJ than anything. Strangely drinkable after a night on the Cali IPAs. At least it doesnít taste of íBudí.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2012 Tonight I decided to buy 1 beer I thought I would hate, after treating myself to a few good ones. I was expecting an abomination, but was somehow disappointed since this was not abysmal; merely on the underside of mediocrity, albeit bizzarre. 24 oz can pours a pinkish orange with a quickly disspating small white head and no lacing. Smells like tomato juice and old canned clams. Aroma is the same, with celery and clam tins. I couldnít taste the advertised lime. Taste is way too salty, but not vomitous. Lots of carbonation and a medium body. It might induce heartburn, but at least it wasnít a drain pour, and Iím happy to say that I will egest this out my bottom instead of hurl it out my top. Itís most redeeming quality is its infamy as the worst big corporate decision since New Coke or the 1958 Edsel. Enjoy this as a student of poor taste in American History, not as a beer drinker. Iíve had worse, but not many.
Edited to say that after I wrote this, I could not finish this. This is my one and only drain pour. Dog Bite High Gravity Lager, Stack High Gravity Smooth Lager and Steel Reserve 211 come close, but I was able to finish all of those and type on to the next day.
