Chelada with the refreshing flavor of tomato, salt and lime

24 oz can. Holy crap, WTF is this? Mostly clear orange pour with reddish hues - no head after 5 seconds. I can smell it from 5 feet away. Tomato juice, which isn’t inherently bad for me, but it sure isn’t working in this beverage. I took a sip and flat out couldn’t bring myself to swallow it - I spit it into the sink. Only reason I didn’t give it a 1/10 on taste is that I had to leave room at the bottom of the range for Cave Creek Chili Beer and its brethren. Yikes - quick drain pour on this.

Can, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
The beer pours a hazy reddish orange color with a soda style ’fizz out while you’re still pouring it’ head.

The aroma is straight up canned tomato juice, maybe a little saltiness in there, but mostly it’s tomato juice.

The flavor is like salty tomato juice. Very little of the lime or beer flavor are well expressed except to add a bit of brightness and zip to the flavor.

It’s better than the Budweiser versions, but whatever.

Can shared with some dorks. Aroma is tomato juice, lime, and slight brine. Pours chunky nasty with floaties, film, and a dirty head. What an ugly beer. Taste is tomato juice, salt, lime juice, vinegar, and a sour yeast. The lime really takes the edge off making this the closest to drinkable this style has. Not the worst.

Poured from a 24 oz. can. A cloudy muddy red hued body. The nose has tons of tomato and a touch of the lime. Hints of grass and vegetables are present. This is actually quite refreshing and drinkable with the hint of lime to complement the dominant tomatoes and slightly grassy beer. Notes of salt are present on the back end. A decent beer for a warm summer night.

Better than bid versions as it is not as horridly acidic, also no clam or ton of black pepper. Still looks gross, and crap beer and tomato flavor still ain’t my thing. Just better than the worst.

Drake (8546) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Can from Beer Run, 5/29/14. Hazy pink, no head Aroma of tomato soup and soy sauce. Taste matches. Thin bodied. Not as bad as Bud Chelada.

Sledutah (4682) - Utah, USA - AUG 2, 2014
24oz can picked up at Smiths
Pours cloudy red/amber, some bubbles, no head or lacing. Aroma of tomato juice, grassy and citrus. Taste is watered down tomato juice, lime and very salty
Better than Bud Chelada, but not much. Footbalmed.......

MarkSachon (585) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Can to a frosted mug at Fiesta Mexico Restaurant in Harrisburg, PA. Slightly refreshing with perhaps too much tomato and citrus. Not bad and worth a try.

JHeath99 (951) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Can from a gas station. Pours a slightly hazy amber with almost no head. Aroma of tomatoes and spices. Taste of malts and tomatoes.

Cloudy red brown color, with almost no head. (Salt?) Tomato and lime flavors were interesting....but one in a lifetime was enough!
