Rough smell the tomato and beer doesn’t work for me, taste is better than expected however, not horrible and wouldn’t want more than one! All tomato, no hops or malt but smooth beer mixed in...gets better with time

Pours a red rust color with no head. Tomato juice nose with a fade of spies. Moderately faint mouth feel with a faint carbonation scrub. A bottle of tomato juice, salt, pepper and Modelo and a glass.

24 oz can. (Discount Tobacco & Beer) Chattanooga, TN.
Hazy brown colour with no head. Looks ugly. Tomato soup... nothing else... in the aroma. The flavour is salt... lots of salt... mild lime and tomato soup. Great aroma. Much saltier than the American (Budweiser) versions. Great tradition. I just love chelada.

This poured a golden color with a slight red tint to it. The aroma is tomato juice, limes, and some kind of herbal notes. The flavor is a bit sour with a strong tomato and lime presence. I dont know if these are growing on me or what but I like this quite a bit better than the Budweiser ones. Overall this really isnt all that bad.

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.

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 5, 2014
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.

heemer77 (5129) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - AUG 30, 2014
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.

slowrunner77 (6163) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 24, 2014
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.

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.
