3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Red. It's red. No head. Aroma is tomato and spice. Flavour is tomato and salt maybe lime. Finish is refreshing and salty.

Cloudy reddish pink color with no head retention to speak of. Spicy tomato and seawater with a lime tang and bite. Has a stronger beer presence than the Bud Cheladas.

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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

[ bottle ][ 1.5oz ][ @Tasting ][ $? ][ schnapps snifter ][ 03.05.15 ]
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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
