24 oz can, thanks brenn79! Aroma consists of tomato juice, lime, vague whiff of vomit. Pours clear copper with a red-white head with decent retention. Falls after a couple minutes, leaving no trace of foam. Looks better than Budweiser’s version! Tastes better, too. Taste is meaty, salty, strong tomato juice character, lime. Texture is a little watery, which is fine. I like a good chelada or red beer, and I love bloody marys. Highly recommended for people with these kinds of taste buds. Beer snobs stay clear.

Quite strange it is not in my list. Anyway, it is enjoyable with food and in reunions but nothing special. Just a Mexican-style cocktail.

Scopey (13558) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2016
Massive 24oz mega can in filthy hot Houston. It pours hazy red with a quickly dissipating white head. The aroma is spicy tomato, Tom toms, sweet ketchup, briney, raw onion and vinegar. The taste is crisp, sweet, tangy, ketchup, meaty, salty, tom toms, tangy, vinigerette, lime and salty action with a dry tangy finish. Light - medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Bad idea, but this is an OK interpretation. Beats the regular bud chelada imo.

Canned from Walmart. Watery tasting beer with a little bit of a tomato flavor to it. Quite watered down flavor. It;s pretty easy drinking though. Kind of refreshing.

This from a can that was slightly caved in, like there was negative pressure inside. Zero head and almost no carbonation. I think it would have been better with a little more carbonation - to give it a bit more edge. Right now, it’s not too bad - a slightly sweet tomato beer with a hint of salt. Don’t find the lime in it.

tepid peach grapefruit. Strong tomato nose, husky. Tomato-rich profile, low acid, no striking contrast, faintly salty mid palate, tomato driven and singular but well expressed.

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

Alphadelic (2202) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 10, 2016
This can cracks me up. The initial aroma is pretty much pure tomato juice. It’s pretty great. Does pretty much what I’d expect. It reminds me of the liquid that sits in the bottom of a bowl of freshly mixed Pico de Gallo, which is one of my favorite treats. A pleasant surprise.

ordybill (1566) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAY 3, 2016
Poured from a 25 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a dark golden color with a small white head. The aroma is all tomato with some saltiness. The taste is also tomato and it is heavily carbonated. Not a good beer.

I know this is not a beer I am "supposed" to like, but...it isn’t too bad. It is a breakfast beer. Smells like Campbell’s tomato soup. Appearance is this murky reddish-orange liquid. Not too pleasant to look at. Taste is tomato, some pepper, and a spice...like spicy bloody mary mix. A bit salty. The lime comes through at the end. The aftertaste and palate is where it goes a bit wrong. I get a tinny feel at the end (before a tomato coating at the lower back of the jaw.) That tinny sensation ruins a lot of the taste. So, overall it is not too bad. Reminds me of the poorly made bloody mary’s I used to drink in the morning after camping.

3/1/16. Tallboy can from Warehouse. With this, I have rated every single beer available there (until something new comes in). This is awful. I *get* that people can like this kind of thing, I’m really not being a snob here - I just hate this kind of stuff. I can hardly drink these Chelada things without gagging, but hey, ticks R TICKS. Red tomato juice pour with a small red khaki head that sizzles away, no head, leaving a murky red glass of garbage. Huge tomato soup and salt flavor, putrid, vomit, etc. Awful flavor, could hardly choke down a sip or two, tomato soup, tomato juice, salt, spices, lime. Disgusting.
