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.

It had been a few years since we tried to drink the debacles that were Chelada and Chelada Light. Didnít come close to finishing either, and the regular version is quite possibly the worst excuse for a beer Iíve ever had. I recently had the Tecate spicy one though, and didnít hate it. So I went into this $2.59 gas station gem wondering if itís be as hateful as the other Buds. The answer is yes...and no. The spice adds a pleasant dimension that was completely lacking in the undrinkable garbage the others were. This is still a gross overcarbonated clam-mato mess. Itís just a step or two above the loowest rung, where the others lie.

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.

Poured from a 25 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a reddish pink will a small pink head. The aroma is a faint tomato and spice smell, sort of like tomato soup. The taste is a watered down carbonated tomato soup with some spice.

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 donít mind this at all, but would far prefer to make my own. Plus, this size of can is ridiculous.

Backlog from Brony Bottle Share at Travlrís. 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. Thereís lots of artificial lime in the nose here and it has an unpleasant pink color. Itís tomato juicy, thick, salty and weird w/ a meaty, briny element that fucking sucks. Itís also not spicy. Honestly, this stuff can just about bugger itself.

Look you either like these things or you donít, very little middle room here. I do normally, however this one wasnít 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.
