Merge two incredible tastes: a refreshing Budweiser and the intensely zesty jalapeno kick of Clamato Picante. Drink it straight from the can or add your favorite ingredients to make it yours.

Mega-can, part of the Chelada taste-off. Pinkish-red, opaque, short-lived link head, pretty much identical to the non-picante version. Similar briny, spicy, aroma and flavour, but notably spicier and perhaps a bit limier too (is limier a word? more limey, whatever). Anyway, as with the others in this series, either you like the idea of this colloidal marriage or you do not. I actually don’t mind this at all, but would far prefer to make my own. Plus, this size of can is ridiculous.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2016 Heinous, putrid aroma. Medium pink appearance. Ocean water, funk and clam taste. black pepper.

Backlog from Brony Bottle Share at Travlr’s. The worst of the Bud Cheladas. Which is really saying something.

740ml can. Clammy, spicy, lime aroma, actually nice. Flavor is salty as fuck but semi-fdrinkable. Needs less salt and more spice whcih is non-existent.

Something about drinking clam juice you bought from a low-rent liquor store is just horrifying--even if it is ultimately mixed w/ beer. There’s lots of artificial lime in the nose here and it has an unpleasant pink color. It’s tomato juicy, thick, salty and weird w/ a meaty, briny element that fucking sucks. It’s also not spicy. Honestly, this stuff can just about bugger itself.

Look you either like these things or you don’t, very little middle room here. I do normally, however this one wasn’t my favorite. This one tasted like if I were to drink the whole can I might get sick. Slightly too tomato tasting, no real heat for something labeled "picante". It kinda tasted like stale beer, old and sitting around.

24 oz. can. I am a fan of Bud/Light Chelada, but Picante here is a big misfire. It tastes slightly more peppery, and much more metallic. Have tried numerous times... one of the worst palates ever encountered. Somehow thinner than regular Chelada. No bueno, amigos.

Can thanks to Graeme during RBWG Lobby share. Pours a reddish pink with small pink head. The aroma is tomato juice, spice, and chili. Medium mouth with flavors similar to nose, light picante and heat in finish, decent.

Jesus. The vague spice aroma in this only works to prolong the sickening experience you felt when you first ingested this swill. Tall can o’ love thanks to MrChopin.

Big Boy Can at Brony Tasting, DC. This smells and tastes like the worst pickle juice you can conjur. Salty, peppery tomato water. Unimaginably bad.
