24 oz can, thanks brenn79! Aroma consists of tomato juice, lime, vague whiff of vomit. Pours clear copper with a red-white head with decent retention. Falls after a couple minutes, leaving no trace of foam. Looks better than Budweiser’s version! Tastes better, too. Taste is meaty, salty, strong tomato juice character, lime. Texture is a little watery, which is fine. I like a good chelada or red beer, and I love bloody marys. Highly recommended for people with these kinds of taste buds. Beer snobs stay clear.

Do you ever have a day where you want to drink beer mixed w/ tomato juice and are just feeling too dang lazy to open both a can of beer and a can of tomato juice? Well, if you do and you happen to have a can of this in the fridge, you are in luck because that’s exactly the kind of day this is designed for. Of course, because it’s a packaged product you also get the bonus ingredients of artificial sweeteners and coloring. Great! This stuff pours a murky red brown color w/ basically no head. It smells of a not entirely unappealing mixture of tomato soup and vinegar-based hot sauce. It tastes like the same mixture plus a bit of metallic bitterness and a hint of sweetness and acidity. I don’t know how much actual tomato juice this contains but they did at least simulate having a good amount in there by lowering the carbonation. Still, it does not have the rich texture of a tomato-based beverage and instead comes off as watery w/ lot of small particulates. Overall, given the relative ease w/ which this stuff can be made at home and its low quality, I will just go ahead and say this is basically useless.

24oz can, from my local Kroger. Shared w/ friends. Hazy red orange color. Minimal white head. Lots of fine particles in the body. Wow, the flavor.. So much tomato juice, light spice, some bready lagery flavor. Moderate sweet taste, lightly spicy. Light pepperiness. Nah, I don’t mind this at all. Smooth, crisp, light carbonation. Lightly slick. I like Modelo, for a cheap light lager, it’s my go to. I love bloody marys, too. I guess it makes sense that I’d dig this. Could chief the can if I tried.

(can - 24 oz) Had one sip and passed it on to someone standing in the street outside the bodega I bought it at. Red pour. No head. Dirty tomatoes and saltwater. Flavor was just gross. Bad overly salted tomato juice.

Big ass canned brew speared @ a 7-11 in downtown Chicago. Pour like tomato juice, minimal head. Aroma of dog food, flavor of a nice chelada. Not enough carbonation, a bit thick. I much prefer the bud versions of this.

Spicy tomato lime aroma. Pours a cloudy red with a thin white head that fades very quickly. Tomato lime and some skunky malt. Not bad for what it is.

Well, punch me in the eye and paint me blue- i kinda liked is .. . Bought a 24 ounce CaN and drank it over at the Wick’s house .. . Ruby juice .. . Light foam .. . Tomato juice and light beer, but tasty- very odd but i did enjoy it. Refreshing and tangy .. . . I’m never having kids. Annoying brats. Although i must say, brats cooked in beer are rather tasty..

Modelo Especial Chelada has no head, but it does have an opaque, tomato-red, extremely bubbly appearance, and a film left behind on the side of the glass. The aroma is essentially of tomatoes or tomato paste, a faint lime smell, and a bit of light beer coming through. Taste is of tomato juice, a touch of lime, sweetness, and a bit of beer flavor. Mouthfeel is medium and very spritzy. Modelo Especial Chelada finishes semi-dry, easy drinking, and enjoyable. Overall, this is very good, for what it is. RJT
