Can. Red orange colour with a pinkish head. Aroma is sewer, malt, tomato, peppar. Flavour is malt, salt, tomato, peppar. Horrible beer. Scopey (14730) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2012
Can at Chriso’s Fullers-Gales Tasting, thanks to Leighton. It pours cloudy deep orange, with pretty much no head. The nose is tomato, spice, salt and green vegetables. The taste is (unsurprisingly) sweet tomato, salt, cracked black pepper and chilli pepper. The best thing is that you can’t taste the bud light. It’s a lot like bloody mary mix, so we just added some vodka and Worcestershire sauce to liven it up. Not as bad as anticipated (but then again I do like bloody marys). djd07 (14517) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Can as shown. Pours a hazy red orange with small frothy pink head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is pepper and skunk. Medium mouthfeel with the tomato and a really bad pepper aftertaste. Had to add lots of lime and salt just to get through it. Would much rather make my own chelada. Avoid. Tmoney99 (14486) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2008
Can from Party Source, Ky. Poured a red color with a minimal white head that diminished quickly and did not leave any lacing. Moderate spicy tomato aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Moderate spicy tomato flavor with medium spicy finish of short duration. I have drank a lot of red beers for breakfast when fly fishing and would drink this in a pinch.

Can. Frothy white fair mostly deminishing head. Orange cloudy colour. Ugly fruity rotten aroma. Very bad flavor, watery strange palate. Total weird and undrinkable. Meat flavor. absurd.

24 ounce can. I truly fear this one. Pours a sickly looking pale pink color. Not much of a head. Aroma is Manhattan style clam chowder and salt. Taste is salt, clam juice, faint acidic notes from the tomatoes. I have to look really, really hard to notice anything that remotely resembles beer, and I fear even that may be a hopeful figment of my imagination. I feel like putting this into a bowl and heating it up. It’s not beer, Christian (13670) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 3, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2010 Reddish with a small head. Awful tomato aroma, and very salty flavour. Pretty disgusting altogether Stuu666 (13399) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 14, 2014
Can at Craig’s. My tasting notes just say ’horrible’. Weird salty, tomato juice thing. thewolf (12595) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2008

<b>["Thank" you, FatPhil]</b>
Pours muddy, pale red with no head. Aroma is disgusting, stale tomato juice, light chili and rotten leaves. Thin and sticky. Chili, tomato in flavour. Weird, unbalanced and generally disgusting.
24oz can. I would have liked to be a fly on the wall when this one was conceived. I picture, just like the peanut butter cup add, someone walking around the corner with a bud light and someone with a can of clamato juice. They bump into each other. Hey, you got bud light in myclamato juice. Hey, you got clamato juice in my bud light. They both take a taste and the Chelada was born. This one was absolute crap.
