I had had Modelo chelada with tamarind and been very pleased..so thought i would try the gringo version
Pink ,almost luminescent with no head.
Aroma of canned tomatoes ..bit of pepper.
Taste is more balanced..tomato , salt and beer..with a slight heartburn in the end
Mouth feel is OK..salty but fresh.
Its a OK..not as bad as the reviews but nowhere as good as Modelo Chelada fr the same price. VsXsV (4544) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2017
Can. Clear light pink liquid with small white head. Aroma of tomato, grain, lime, throw up, dms and metal. Taste is light sweet and light sour with notes of throw up, chili and tomato. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. Absolutely revolting. PugUglyBrewer (791) - - MAR 23, 2017
Besides the lime chelada this is one of the best cheladas in Bud’s lineup. Spicy and more beer flavored. An absolute hot weather elixir. ajnepple (7065) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 25, 2016
Small sample from a 25 oz can. Smells and taste like a spicy tomato juice, kinda of like a bad bloody mary. No thanks. hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2016
Can... It’s basically a Red Eye made with Clamato instead of straight tomato juice. I like to drink Red Eyes when I tailgate and cheap pale lager is all that’s available. I would have scored this one higher if it didn’t have the shellfish juice and other spices in there. I like my Red Eye with straight-up tomato juice. This one is a touch spicier than regular Bud Chelada, so I’m liking it a little more.

It had been a few years since we tried to drink the debacles that were Chelada and Chelada Light. Didn’t come close to finishing either, and the regular version is quite possibly the worst excuse for a beer I’ve ever had. I recently had the Tecate spicy one though, and didn’t hate it. So I went into this $2.59 gas station gem wondering if it’s be as hateful as the other Buds. The answer is yes...and no. The spice adds a pleasant dimension that was completely lacking in the undrinkable garbage the others were. This is still a gross overcarbonated clam-mato mess. It’s just a step or two above the loowest rung, where the others lie. oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Pours a golden reddish yellow. Aromas of grass, malts, and a touch of briney tomato. Flavor is briney, tomato, cheap lager...but I love me some red beer. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAY 2, 2016
Poured from a 25 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a reddish pink will a small pink head. The aroma is a faint tomato and spice smell, sort of like tomato soup. The taste is a watered down carbonated tomato soup with some spice. DuffMan (10665) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 29, 2016
Mega-can, part of the Chelada taste-off. Pinkish-red, opaque, short-lived link head, pretty much identical to the non-picante version. Similar briny, spicy, aroma and flavour, but notably spicier and perhaps a bit limier too (is limier a word? more limey, whatever). Anyway, as with the others in this series, either you like the idea of this colloidal marriage or you do not. I actually don’t mind this at all, but would far prefer to make my own. Plus, this size of can is ridiculous. Bricks (1150) - Delaware, USA - JAN 22, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2016 Heinous, putrid aroma. Medium pink appearance. Ocean water, funk and clam taste. black pepper.
