31st July 2010. ChrisO’s ’Raise The Roof’ tasting.
Okay it’s a Bud Light so should be ripe for a good pasting of a rate right? That’s certainly how I approached it but whaddya know - it’s 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 don’t 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 ’made the beer our own’ 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.

I wouldn’t go so far as to call this good beer but it’s a great drink under the right circumstances. I prefer this one to the non-light version. It’s the only product labeled Bud that I like. I guess the clamato covers up the signature Budweiser flavor that I can’t stand.

To be honest it was dirnkable and nice refreshing taste. I do not knw why it was allowed in here since ther eis no difference in the rbeweing process.

If you’re expecting this to taste like beer, you shouldn’t even bother to rate it. It isn’t supposed to taste like Bud, and it doesn’t. It’s more like a Bloody Mary. In fact, I usually add a shot of vodka, dashes of Tabasco and Worchestershire, and a stick of celery and drink it over ice. It’s pretty darn good that way.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2010 Pours an unnatural pinkish red with very little head. Tastes and smells like crappy beer, celery, clam juice, pepper, etc. Pretty much like drinking clamato + bud light but without the thickness. I honestly didn’t mind this.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Looks like hazy, thinned tomato juice capped by a small, fizzy, white head.
Smell: A few hearty squirts of Heinz ketchup into a pot of simmering celery stock with no more than a few faroff hints of actual beer.
Taste: Salty tomato soup taste. Tiny hit of acidity. Very ketchupy and heavily seasoned with celery salt. Sweetish beer thins things out. Peppery spice. Thinnish tomato water finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Not altogether terrible. In fact, it’s okay.

Bud Light & Clamato Chelada has a medium, pink head, which instantly fizzes away and an opaque red appearance, with golden splotches left on the side of the glass. The aroma is of tomato juice and a slight whiff of clam broth. Taste is of tomato juice, clam broth, lime flavor, and maybe some Bud Light. The body is medium to thick, and Bud Light Chelada finishes soupy, like a watery clam chowder. Overall, for what it is (an odd concoction), it’s pretty enjoyable. I recommend it for someone who would like to try something different.

In a 40oz can thanks Craig. Pours a cloudy light reddish colour with a lacy white head. Aroma of Clamato juice, lemon, black pepper and celery. Very bloody maryish. Similar clamato juice flavours. Mild carbonation and CO2 prickle with a foamy mouth-feel. Lingering clamato, black pepper and lemon juice.
