1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Thru my beer drinking years, Iíve always enjoyed combining pale lagers with a good Bloody Mary tomato juice mix (like Snap-E-Tom or Clamato), so I was in old territory here. First, the appearance. It looks pinkish, with a light pink foamy head with went away fairly quickly. It has this sort of sludge like appearance in the glass. My first whiff of this is of course Clamato, which is good. I donít get much in terms of the beer because of the spices in the Clamator pretty much trounce anything trying to escape. Plus, itís Bud freakiní Light and thereís basically no aroma there anyways. So, a good whiff of Clamato and we are good to go. Flavor is a nice surprise. Clamato for sure whith an odd mineral-water like flavor which isnít very appetizing. Mouthfeel is watery with an odd oilyness to it. Not very enjoyable for sure. Overall, Iíd say they do the best they could with joining a good product like Clamato with a shit product like Bud Light. Now on to the real deal...Bud Chelada!

I LOVE THIS BEER!! I have been asked many times what kind of beer Iím drinking. The thing behind the this is that, TONS of New Mexicanís like it because of the spice, the hint of lime and the splash of clamato it has. For most itís probably NOT going to be for you.
But if one is going to venture for a new drink, this one is IT!! Very refreshing and smooth. Again, if you donít like it Iím assuming your the type that goes to a Mexican Restraunt and orders "GREEN ON THE SIDE" ...break out and try something new. itís hot and smooth, great taste!!

24 oz can. Can looks just like the Bud Chelada, except it is blue rectangle rather than red, and says Bud Light rather than Budweiser. Salty, seafoody aroma. Light pinkish amber color with a white head that fizzed off. A bit watery with very mild carbonation. Flavor of salt, lime, tomato and nothing else. There is a peppery aspect. The salt is welcome, but I think your physician would recommend avoiding this to help your blood pressure.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2009 Can. How this passed quality control, I donít know. Nonetheless, pours red and carbonated with an aroma of lemony tomato juice. Smells like retarded baby diaper vomit piss. Tastes like tomato juice poured into a Bud Lite with a touch of lime in the background. Bizare and uneeded. Yes, I cut and pasted my review from the Budweiser version and substituted Bud Lite for the aforementioned base beer. Sue me.

Canned. Pours a pinkish color. Aroma is like that of the sea. Flavor is of spiced tomato juice with a beer flavor in the background. Better than regular Bud Light.
