Iím hooked. Iím a Chicano whoís been making this delicious concoction, hangover remedy and aphrodisiac (but arenít all beers?) since I can remember. In all my years of making and tasting micheladas or "Red Beers", I honestly feel that Budweiser has made a damn delicious blend. The taste, well, it tastes like Budlight mixed with Clamato with a hint of spiciness. You can drink a few of these and not feel full because of carbonation. Itís still carbonated, but the Clamato reduces the carbonation. The color is USDA Red 40 and anyways who cares, it comes in a can and tastes better straight out of the can. You donít have to go down to Mexico City to have an authentic michelada, theyíre being made right here in the barrio. Budlight Cheladas are just as good if not better. I donít know if itís because Iíve never been a good bartender (maybe thatís why I drink beer) or because Iím just not that consistent, but Budlight Cheladas are always consistent which is a plus for me. In conclusion, Budlight Cheladas taste great and are an excellent source of protein. So yes, this is a beer and itís healthy! !Viva La Chelada!

Can at Snowbird Ski Area. Reddish body with big head. Nose peppery. Taste of tomato juice and vodka. A terrible beer.

beer_rookie (381) - Arkansas, USA - MAY 13, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2016 25 oz can. Ocassion, I hate my job.

Pours a red, tomato juice color. Aggressive pour, lots of head. No retention, some lacing at the tip top.

Aroma is of tomato, and salt. The head had good aromas of salt, lime and chili that the beer does not.

Taste is tomato and spicy. Thatís about all. Not so much lime, yeah some salt. But itís actually tasty. Like a very light bloody mary.

Mouthfeel is medium, and also watery. It tastes like it should be heavier in body and higher ABV, only 4.2%, really? Has a pleasing tingling burn after the swalow.

Overall, itís not bad. I probably will not drink it again, but Iíll try more in the style.

Iíve read some of the reviews here, and seriously. Itís...not...that...bad....My first couple of sips were terrible too, because I wasnít quite expecting it to be so tomato. But my palate adjusted, and boom, Iím drinking it and liking it. Open your minds, give it another try.

Update! Iím lowering my rating a little, because the tomato in this is very heavy. 25 oz of this is too much. Still pretty good!

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Pours a golden reddish yellow. Aromas of grass, malts, and a touch of briney tomato. Flavor is briney, tomato, cheap lager...but I love me some red beer.

ordybill (1302) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - APR 5, 2016
Poured from a 25 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a cloudy pink color with no head. The aroma is tomatoes. The taste is mostly salty tomato. Not good.

ffbot (340) - Oakland, California, USA - MAR 14, 2016
Itís an average chelada brew. Big tomato presence, salty, and looks like puke as always. Hereís a hint: add a shot of vodka or tequila for an extra kick and some flavor

Heinous, putrid aroma. Weak pinkish, scary appearance. Ocean water, funk and clam taste.. light spice. Itís so bad.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6621) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2016
This stuff is awful...but I was expecting worse. +++ Sampled from a 16 oz can this beer poured a fizzy and murky red-pink color with a large foamy orange head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was bad marinara, pepper and clam. The flavor was fizzy watered down tomato juice with strong ground pepper and a bit of clam. Regrettably long finish. Light body. Awful.

Backlog from Brony Bottle Share at Travlrís. This is just absolutely horrible. I would rather drink dishwater.

Kavu (4022) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 5, 2015
25 fl. oz. can bought from a gas station in Santa Fe and shared with aperi, many thanks for drinking half of it! Pours opaque red with no head and salt sticking to the sides of the glass. Aroma is salty tomato juice and lime. Flavor is quite disgusting too. Tomato juice, loads of salt and some lime. No hint of beer, but thatís hardly a surprise as bud light doesnít deserve the moniker. I had to think hard to find one attribute to raise above 1.
