Tasted on 1/26/15 from a 25oz can purchased in Oklahoma, big thanks to Alex for picking this up for me. Pours hazy red with a thin, fizzy white head that quickly disappears. The nose is sweet stewed tomato, some pepper spice, and lime. The flavor is actually not terrible, but a sweeter, less spicy version of good cheladas I have had in the past. The body is water light with fizzy, soda-like carbonation, and a medium sweet tomato and lightly spicy finish.

First you have to ask yourself if you enjoy tomato based drinks. If not, this will not be your favorite if you don’t like to experiment. If you do enjoy tomato based drinks then I highly recommend this one.
The Micheladas you get in bars or make at home will be a little more red. The red color in this drink is a little off putting and it just looks like it would come from a big factory brewer. The taste however is a different story. The carbonation is just right. The clamato and beer go together perfectly like wood to a BBQ, instead of processed briquettes.
These Micheladas are becoming very popular in the Southwest and have been extremely popular in Mexico (which is where it was invented) for a long time. This si also awesome for adding it as a base for your own Michelada. I personally like to add key limes and a little hot sauce.
I had this drink in Mexico and at first I thought my cousin was crazy for adding tomato to beer. It was like the biggest sin I could think of. Once I tasted this bud light chelda, it was like the heavens parted and angles sang in my ears.

473 ml can. Thanks rosenbergh. Pours a cloudy orange colour without a head. Loads of sediment, meaning tomato in this case. Aroma of tomato juice and green cooked vegetables. Flavour of very strong tomato juice notes, spiciness, green vegetable notes and salt. It’s extremely hard to recognize this as a beer. Definitely something I haven’t tasted before. It’s like a soup, but it’s beer.

50 cl can
Pours murky red color with no head. Aroma pof tomatoes, herbs and sweet fruits. Tastes pretty much like a tomato soup with chili, salt and lemon fruits. Quite unique.

Can at Craig’s. My tasting notes just say ’horrible’. Weird salty, tomato juice thing.

Good for going on the golf course and hitting some balls. I had mine over ice, and mixed vodka in it. Not too bad

Tiny can, found in my neighbours fridge. Is Clamato a distinctly Canadian thing? I know the Caesar is-- Americans have the Bloody Mary, which is not as savoury IMO. Anyway, I really expected to hate this, wanted to hate it! But I actually didn’t mind it at all. To be fair, it was like drinking a cold can of Clamato with just an underlying hint of lager beer, but it was tasty. I had another. I’m ashamed and feel dirty. I’m going to sit in the shower and cry now.
