Budweiser & Clamato Chelada and Bud Light & Clamato Chelada are a combination of our classic American-style lagers, Budweiser and Bud Light, and the rich, spicy taste of Clamato Tomato Cocktail. We follow the traditional brewing process for Budweiser and Bud Light. Clamato is carefully blended with the beer to create the proper balance of the crisp finish of Budweiser or Bud Light and the signature taste of Clamato.

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.

16 oz can. Aroma of red beer/bloody mary--tomato juice, veggies. Looks terrible-- no head, no lacing; looks flat. Itís the color of grapefruit juice almost--a little redder actually. Taste is like a really well-made red beer. Tastes of tomato juice and beer, spices. This is really good stuff, I think. I donít really give a shit what all the beer snobs think. LIvely carbonation, thick texture--maybe a little thinner than the non-light version. Finishes with a nice tomato flavor.

Pretty much same rating as the non-Litght version except there is less residue on the glass. Can. And I liked it. Pink grapefruit colour. Porous dirty head. Clamato lacing, clamato scent, spicy clamato flavour. For what it is it is pretty good. You donít taste the beer and probably donít want to. Any pale lager would work. Higher clamato ratio than the ones I used to pour years ago. Makes me wonder what a great beer would taste like with clamato. Tasty.

Good carbonation. Perfect balance of sweet sour and taste. For some reason I am addicted to this beer. I drink it every weekend. Right now it is my favorite beer. Light refreshing and can drink a lot of them. I like the salty flavor with hint of lime.

31st July 2010. ChrisOís íRaise The Roofí tasting.
Okay itís a Bud Light so should be ripe for a good pasting of a rate right? Thatís certainly how I approached it but whaddya know - itís really not that bad. Hazy pinkish -peach beer. Little suddy head. Tomato spice with a little worcester sauce. Spicy. A bloody mary beer! Unfashionable and much derided - I donít care - I liked it!

Can at chriso Vintage Tasting. Pours cloudy, red gold. Impressively, the further into the can you get, the redder, cloudier and thicker the beer becomes. There are many bits of sediment floating about. Mild tomato juice aroma. Has a sweet and quite salty flavor, with nice tomato notes and modest pepper spiciness coming through. Light in body with average carbonation and bits of stuff swishing in the mouth as well. Salty-sweet finish, more tomato, light sugar. Not bad. We ímade the beer our owní by adding different things. I went with just a dash of Worchestershire sauce, which did improve the beer a bit. Some of the others preferred a more robust concoction, and opted for the Worchestershire, Tabasco and vodka, a blend that they enjoyed quite a bit. A very versatile beer.
