24 oz can. Aroma is tomato juice, generic beer, spices, wet stone, pepper. Pours hazy burnt orange with a medium pinkish off-white head with decent retention. Taste is tart, salty and spicy with a fair amount of pepper heat; flavors of tomato, lime juice, pepper, other spices that I assume include the tamarind. Lots of lime here. It’s seriously puckering. Mouthfeel is pretty thin, but that’s to be expected given the base beer. Awesome stuff! Far and away the best chelada I’ve ever had.

Modelo Chelada Tamarindo has a thick, frothy, peach-colored head, which actually sticks around a bit, and a murky, orange-red, chunk-filled appearance, with salty, sediment residue, left behind. The aroma is of tomato, beer, and low-level spices, and the taste is of salt, tomato, spices, and a paper note, which I often encounter in meso-American lagers. Mouthfeel is medium, and Modelo Chelada Tamarindo finishes salty and salad-y.

3.1/5: Really interesting mix of chipotle heat and tamarind, and the chelada itself isn't gross; kind of sweet at the end of the day

decent carb. Some nice lime flavor. Not as salty and savory as I would expect. Kind of a weird sweetness flavor from the tamarind(?). Not a typical adjunct chelada. A strange mistake of a variation. Not willing to try again.
