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.

24 oz can. Cloudy orange-amber pour with a fizzy beige head and poor retention. No lacing. Tomato juice nose. Tastes like a V8 mixed with a light beer. Why? Not horrible but not enjoyable. Not beer.

I like red-eyes. This is a red-eye with lime juice added. Smells like a blend of tomato juice and pale lager accompanied by a splash of lime. Full-bodied w busy. Tart, vegetal and citric. Tasty.

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.

Scopey (15290) - 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.

drpimento (3714) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 11, 2016
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.
