2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2013 This is the only bud product I can stomach. The clamato flavor really comes through. Better to make your own chelada but this is decent on a hot day, especially if you have no craft options at the mini-mart

I doubt this is 5% ABV since it is diluted with copious tomato, clam, and citric acid juices. Maybe 3.5% is more realistic or even a bit less(?) At least Negra Modelo’s version is honest with the ABV when they dilute their chelada concoction into it...
The Bud Light version is better since you are not drinking this for alcohol content; you are drinking this because you ’acquired the taste’ of Chelada//Michelada!
Straight up against Negra Modelo Chelada is that Modelo appears to have worcestershire in it. Bud Chelada’s are unfiltered clam juice. So take your choice: spicey or briney, both a bit salty, your call; if it is your drink.

A little more terrible than the light version, mostly because the budweiser is actually more prominent through the sickly taste of clamato. Thanks again to MrChopin - this one goes out to you. Tall can o’ love.

Big Boy Can at Brony Tasting, DC. Uh, thanks. Rosy red grapefruit, tobasco, acid reflux. God damn! salty-vinegar, tomato. Marginally better than the ’Lite’ version, and a step up from the Picante for sure.

Can, totally the fault of MrChopin, I hate you. Hazy pink color, white head. Aroma of raw clams dipped in bloody marys. Taste is similar. Woof.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Shared can at RBHD Bjørnøy February 2015. Murky orange body with no head. Tomato juice and sellery dominates the nose and the mouth with a chili warmth. Not bad as a diluted Bloody Mary type drink. A real stretch as a beer though.

Shared can at local tasting. Pours murky orange, no head. Aroma of tomato and berries. Thick oily vegetable mouthfeel, strange bad taste experience, grows as the light chilli burn sets in at the long finish.
