Iím hooked. Iím a Chicano whoís been making this delicious concoction, hangover remedy and aphrodisiac (but arenít all beers?) since I can remember. In all my years of making and tasting micheladas or "Red Beers", I honestly feel that Budweiser has made a damn delicious blend. The taste, well, it tastes like Budweiser mixed with Clamato with a hint of spiciness. You can drink a few of these and not feel full because of carbonation. Itís still carbonated, but the Clamato reduces the carbonation. The color is USDA Red 40 and anyways who cares, it comes in a can and tastes better straight out of the can. You donít have to go down to Mexico City to have an authentic michelada, theyíre being made right here in the barrio. Budweiser Cheladas are just as good if not better. I donít know if itís because Iíve never been a good bartender (maybe thatís why I drink beer) or because Iím just not that consistent, but Budweiser Cheladas are always consistent which is a plus for me. In conclusion, Budweiser Cheladas taste great and are an excellent source of protein. So yes, this is a beer and itís healthy! !Viva La Chelada!

So its December in Florida and Iím fairly broke, but I wanted to keep my monthly rating streak going, so I stopped off at the Racetrac for one of these for $2.49, after having tried the Bud Light version a few weeks ago and the picante version a few months ago. After sorta almost liking the Bud Light version, I didnít think this would be too bad but it reminded me more of the gross picante version. It seemed like this one too had a little spiciness to it. Usual components of lager and clamato, but also vomit. Like the others, its best to just drink from the can so you donít have to smell or in this case, look at it. This one stood out from the others because it had chunks, bits of tomato it seemed, which added to the vomit effect because it just looked like the kind of pink digested whatever vomit that was so common back in 2nd grade. I drank this quickly, choking it down, but gave up before finishing it and drainpoured the last third of the glass. Then I took the kids to see Santa Claus riding on a fire truck in 80 deg weather. Iím Florida man.

Clamato in the States ?? Why am I finding this here in the land of bloody Mary, and not in Canada where Caesars are made with this awesome clam-tomato concoction ? I have always loved mixing Clamato juice and older beers (some outdated) together. As much as I am not s Bud fan, this is pretty decent. In Vegas. Cloudy red with a fizzy head. Looks like it should, watered-down tomato juice. Spicy pepper nose with some tomato notes and hints of celery. Watery taste, but still decent tomatoes. Not enough clam though. I donít mind this for a beer mix.

Can, 24oz. It pours a murky reddish brown body with a minimal sized off-white head. The aroma is pretty awful I think, with tomato, tex-mex fastfood and lime. Spiced, salty flavor with lots of tomato. Full body, soft carbonation and some spicy burn. Rather awful, could never finish a can of it. 131101

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2013 Can from El Cerrito. Pink, hazy pour with no head. Salty as hell. Chef Boyardee Spaghetti-Oís aroma. Crappy tomato, metal, tuna, clam, and celery. Fishy, watery flavor. Crappy canned tomato, tuna, metal, and clam juice. Really damn salty.

I'm sampling this on the tour in Ft. Collins. With each drink I feel the redneck coming through. I feel what seems to be a mullet growing in the back and I'm getting the urge to hit my dog.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Artificial orange color when poured, last couple ounces thick & red. Opaque, vaguely unpleasant looking. Had a V-8 smell, spicy and skunky. Tasted like horrible V-8 gone wrong. Sweet and salty. Palate was Rotten old tomatoes, chili-powder, gross mouth-feel: Thick/Filmy. The scariest thing about it was that it tasted just a bit better than a regular Budweiser. Part of a blind taste test.

Serious Review Time as this is unfortunately coming to alberta. 3 oz sample from ABI guy. Kind of a ketchuppy red colour with a bubbly white head. Aroma is canned tomato paste and tabasco. Taste is dominated by a super carbonated peppery wasteland devoid of anything palatable. Absolutely putrid.
