Pours a cloudy salmon color with a frothy pink speckled head. Very aeromatic with hints of spiced tomato juice, sea salt, fresh citrus, and sweet malt, and shrimp cocktail. Full bodied with thick, chewy mouthfeel and good effervecence. An unforgiving explosion of flavors, spicy, peppery, sugary tomato juice, and marine-like clam juice gives way to a salty, citrusy middle, and a crisp, clean and gentle hop finish. I am not a fan of premixed cocktails but Bud Light Chelada is an exception. It has an excellent taste for a premixed, bottled cocktail, the closest to a a freshly made Michelada that I have had from any beer company. Although it may be a bit rough to the uninitiated drinker, this beer is very popular in South Texas, where I am from, and along the border with other Latino populations. It is nice to see a Macro company come out with a product intended for a minority group. It may be hard to beleive, to some beer drinkers, but this stuff is very popular in South Texas with Hispanics and is available at every single gas station, supermarket, liquer store, and bar. Very refreshing and appetizing. Try with a fresh shrimp cockail with avocado, or fresh ceviche. A note for those who rated this beer very low: A Michelada is a traditional beer cocktail invented along the Mexican border and is a present day Tex-Mex bar staple. A traditional Michelada is made with beer, Clamato, pepper, salt, lime juice, worstershire sauce, and Tabasco.

Aroma of Clamato... very little beer. Appearance: very interesting-LOOKING beer... but thatís not the point, is it? Looks like a brilliant grapefruit juice. Taste: Tastes mostly of tomato... shellfish is understated. Palate: You can tell that itís a beer, but you can mostly tell that thereís clam broth in here. Sticky, slimy after-feel in the mouth. Moderate carbonation considering the slime. Aftertaste is mostly clam, then tomato... beer taste comes in third. Will not buy again except for cooking with. Decent choice for beer-battering other seafood.

Iím from Canada and we were the ones that started putting clamato in our beers. It has turned some pretty gross beers into decent. This was a good effort, though the watered down "drinkability" of Bud shines through on this beer as well. They must have some real good scientists over at AB, as they can make that watered down aftertaste shine through any beer.

Completely undrinkable crap. As if Bud Light wasnít bad enough, now they add clam juice & tomato to it? Foul & Nasty. Like drinking beer mixed with chum. Pour one for somebody you hate.

aroma of something that went bad along time ago, off red color, who put clamato in my can of beer. way too salty. I cant remember the last time a beer was so bad I could not finish it.

A truly terrible beer. After smelling it, I didnít consider drinking more than one sip of this. My sink enjoyed this beer. Sour salty tomato smell. YACK. I give a 2 for appearance, just because it ooks repulsive.

Got some cans of these... 50 cents each. I was amazed they were so cheap, until I tried it. This is the first time I have only had a ííshotíí of beer.

Well... Poured a lovely, grapefruit-juice pink. No, really, it was a nice color, until you think "wait, this is beer." Smells like Clamato (tomato, celery, clams...) and Bud Light (shitty beer, adjuncts, my taste buds dying...). Tastes salty, and like Clamato, with a kick in the finish that screams "YEAAAAAAAAAAAAH SON! BUD LIGHT, BABY!" Iíll admit that Clamato on itís own, while sounding pretty nasty, isnít that unappealing to me - I like clams, and I like V8. However, the fizz and off-flavors of Bud Light are not suitable for pairing with... well, hell, I donít think anyone should be mixing Bud Light with anything. What a mess.
