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.

Finally! Pours a hazy orange-ish pink with just fizz for a head, as it goes away immediately. Nose involves citric acid/sprite, just hinting at the clamato. Taste is salty with clamato, tart with citric acid ("lime"). Active carb, medium-light body, finishing warm and spicy in the esophagus. Pretty ok, though I could use some more (and actual) lime, and a bit less salt. Bitchin’.

Can. Looks just awful and completely unappetizing. Like Bloody Mary mix and tomato soup, with a little kick of heat. Pretty brutal.

Vomit smell, tomato, jalapeno, and onions. The color of blood plasma, headless. Fizzy V8, not all that spicy, not all that beery.

Can because we keep inviting Blipp to these things for some reason. Pours orange white head. Nose/taste of clam, tomato and light pepper. Bad soup. Light body. Couldn’t choke down more than a sip.

Can courtesy of Blipp at RBSDADG 2014. Pours a beautiful hazy orange pink body with light white lacing. Aroma is tomatoe soup all the way. Mouthfeel is medium with salt, seafood, and straight Campbell’s soup. Wow.

Can from a Louisiana bodega. Aroma of tomato juice, red pepper, and urine. Pours soupy and red with visible chunks of who knows? Taste follows suit with tomato juice, iron, red pepper, and a skunky stale bread finish. It tastes like somebody peed in a bloody mary. The slight build of spice throughout is this beer’s only redeeming quality.

Can: Question - what do you do when you already have two variations of an exceedingly disgusting product? Answer - you create another one, because stupid fucks like me will buy them anyway. I feel like this is Budweiser’s Punk’d to the beer community. Let’s take Bud... Then add salt. Lime. Clamato. Peppers. Come on guys, let’s see how bad we can really make this. You could purée a petrified elephant turd & it would probably be more palatable than this sewage water. This is every bit as egregious as the other Clamato collabs & I can’t even taste the fucking pepper in this. I’m thoroughly disgusted that I wasted my time & money on this, no matter how little. Next time I see a new Clamato variant, I’ll remember to put my wallet away, walk out to my car, & just sit on my thumb for about 15 minutes, saving time, money, & pain. The fuck did I expect.

As a frequent michelada drinker, this is no surprise. Just a premixed version, it’s not all that bad, but I’d rather mix my own with Dos Equis Amber or a good Helles. The worst part is the appearance, which looks like watery carbonated tomato soup, complete with undetermined chunks in suspension. It’s an opaque red with a feeble skim of foam that fades rapidly, leaving behind a film on the glass. Aroma is salty and tomato forward. Taste is savory with salt, tomato, and vague lime flavors. The picante jalapeño addition is the only difference from standard Chelada and it’s not all that noticeable sadly. A little tingle in the back of the throat. Made a pretty good pairing with beef jerky. Snap into a slim jim, RIP Macho Man.
