24 oz can of goodness. Tomato juice and sour malt aroma. Cloudy orange-red color with initial giant head that quickly dissipates Tomato juice and clam juice (Clamato) flavor with just a hint of the bud with a light burn to finish. If you’re really like tomato juice, you should be able to stomach it - I can’t. Might keep a few cans around just in case I get sprayed by a skunk - however it may be preferable to smell like a skunk than this. Enniskillen (2061) - Bakersfield, California, USA - OCT 29, 2007
Aroma is tomato juice, and budweiser, pretty simple. Taste is the worst thing I have ever tasted, literally, it felt like I was drinking vomit, and even had the light vomit-esque burn to go with it. I would never reccomend anyone. IrishBoy (4233) - Bakersfield, California, USA - OCT 29, 2007
24 oz can; smells like the Clamato with pepperiness (light) and tomato; raspberry color with a small pinkish head; flavor is terrible! why did they ruin the Clamato by adding Bud. PilsnerPeter (3050) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 21, 2007
Pours like a "girlie" mixed drink. Smells, and tastes like crap. Holy wow this is bad. Salty, fizzy, low quality V8 juice. Horrible. hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2007
UPDATED: 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.

Meaty, Worchestershire sauce aroma. Almost opaque, blood-in-the-water red with bits of detritus. Maybe this is a shade better than the Light version - a little less fizzy, a little more body, pepper didn’t seem as obvious. Briny. I still think the best use for this is as a beef marinade - or maybe a chicken loco injection. Again, this severely stretches the notion of beer and rating beer. As a Bloody Mary, it’s not bad -- but then I hate Bloody Marys. Maybe one day I’ll be pleasantly surprised to find that AB is shipping an decent nitro bitter to Minit Marts in 20 oz cans.

24 oz. can. Looks like bloody toilet water. Thick head when you pour that fade into nothing in record time. Nose-lime, salty, old mushy tomatoes, cheap beer. Taste-salty, rotten veggies, celery seed, light Cajun spice, prickly CO2, warms going down, watered down bloody mary mix, unacdidic lime juice, meaty, light worstecher sauce, Odd and unique, Not an everyday drinker or special but not awful. mmmbeer (1429) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Aroma that of a bad bloody mary mix with a hint of stale beer. Looks like a child’s vomit. Taste? Old tomato paste with water, the Bud comes through on the finish. I mixed in some vodka with this and it was at least drinkable, but by doing so I broke the cardinal rule of beer- having to add something to make it drinkable. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Cloudy red body, similar to grapefruit juice. No head. Highly carbonated. Sweet tomato aroma. Sweet tomato flavor with a medium full body. No real hints of bud, but a bit more body than the light version. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 6, 2007
22 oz. can sampled courtesy of maniac at an impromptu tasting. Very, very much like the Bud Light version. Hazy pink grapefruit juice color, perhaps a bit darker. Fizzy head dies immediately. Tomato and faint clam aroma, a bit of pepper. Tastes like fizzy clamato. Slightly "fuller" in body than the Light version, and the carbonation is not quite as grating. Unfortunately, as it warmed, the beer itself began to make itself known. Not a good thing, but this is half passable when ice cold.
