Salt, lime, and pepper spice. Added to a cheap Mexican Lager. I’m sure somebody likes it, but not me.

Pours a golden reddish yellow. Aromas of grass, malts, and a touch of limey tomato. Flavor islime, tomato, cheap lager...but I love me some red beer.

Not something I’ll go out of my way to get again - but not as terrible as expected either, especially having no idea of the age. So so pale lager with a hint of lime salt and spice. Not terribly pleasant, but not unpleasant either. Would do the trick as a camping beer.

24 oz can. From a liquor store in Chico, CA.
Clear amber colour with a small white head. Lime, some spices and some malt in the aroma. The flavour is lime, some spices and malt. I’m missing clamato. This is the first chelada/michelada without clamato I’ve tasted.

Can. Pours gold with a white head. Macro lager base, with some mild lime-like citrus up front, faint saltiness, and some odd chili-pepper like flavors, which I wasn’t anticipating, but now that I read the description, I guess it’s supposed to be there. Very mild heat lingers in the finish. Not horrible.

2014-07-08. Golden yellow body small off white head. 3+ Aroma is oddly fruity, lime. 6+ Flavour is similar, lime, sweetish pale malt core. Smooth average to thin bodied palate, soft carbonation. Dramatically less bad than anticipated. Bottle, Tasting at cgarvieuk’s, Edinburgh

Can. Amber with white head and some shit floating around. Spicy aroma, pepper, lime, herbs. Taste of lime and a little pepper. Little tangy. Off the wall but not disgusting.

Tecate Michelada has a thin-to-medium, white head, a mostly clear, but with lots of roiling particulate matter, burnished gold (from the added caramel color), bubbly appearance. There is a thin lacing sheen left behind. The aroma is bold- Tecate lager with an overriding chili pepper, or even more so, chili powder smell, which fills the nose. There’s also a lime component, here. Taste is of the same, and the chili powder and lime ride side-by-side with this one. Mouthfeel is between light and medium, with some sliminess. Tecate Michelada finishes semi-dry and easy drinking. Overall, this is an interesting novelty beer. Check it out! RJT
