2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I was really the first IDIOT TO DRINK THIS, that other dude was the FIRST IDIOT TO TAKE HIS TIME TO ENTER IT AS A NEW BEER.
Im rating this from a 1 month old memory, and if you have a problem with that, you can much bite me as thereís not much to remember and I aint drinking this shit again.
So...Iíve spent some time in Mexico..especially in Mexico City where Micheladas are very popular...a nice cold Mexican beer poured over lime juice, ice, salt, and some hot sauce...one of the most refreshing drinks known to man...
This "Chelada" is a freakiní trainwreck. For starters, it uses Budweiser as the base beer...only mexican beer works, the hardness of the water of mexican beer makes the difference, if you think shit lagers are all the same, your palate is unexperienced, go back to work...
Second mistake...the quantaties are skewed...too much of this, not enough of that...I canít remember the specifics, but suffice it to say...it was too "this" and not enough "That".
However...it appears that it is the first beer to conquear this drink commercially, and for that, I give them a prop. no props...just a prop.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
24 oz. can. Beer and tomato juice (cause thereís not much clam in Clamato). Smells a bit like salsa; a peppery touch. Looks like a pinkish fruit punch. Three fingered white head with big bubbles that went down more slowly than rapidly. Definitely has a tomatoe flavor, and there is enough peppery spice to fire things up. The hint of lemon is not strong, but it exists. It is a bit too salty (con sal y limon). The finish is pepper and tomato. It is worth one try, and it is oh so much tastier than "Bud". Putting it another way, anything done to Bud can only improve it. Case in point.

I donít know why, but I dig this convenient little addition of saltiness and shellfish to an otherwise shitty beer. You wouldnít add clamato to a good beer anyway! Had this when I was in Salinas, CA and enjoyed it more for the tomato-y taste than for itís eclectic qualities (which are none)

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Look! Clamato and beer on in one can! This traditional Baja breakfast drink in a mainstream package. No more need for a half empty Clamato bottle taking up valuable space in the ice chest on a Baja 1000 pre run. At 6 in the morning, taste often isnít as critical as convience.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
I have to admit, this was bought by a friend, and I tasted it just for kicks! It tastes more like a bloody mary than beer, abit of spice, but If I were to drink it again, Iíd add some tabasco or Cholula, and black pepper, and it still would be better than Regular bud! not terrible by any means, but its still eh....

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can from 7-11. Pours the color of ruby red grapefruit. Smells like old ocean water. Tastes like spicy tomato juice with a hint of beer and a hot finish. Not as bad as I had hoped. It reminds me of a bloody Mary.
