24oz can. I would have liked to be a fly on the wall when this one was conceived. I picture, just like the peanut butter cup add, someone walking around the corner with a bud light and someone with a can of clamato juice. They bump into each other. Hey, you got bud light in myclamato juice. Hey, you got clamato juice in my bud light. They both take a taste and the Chelada was born. This one was absolute crap. slowrunner77 (12895) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 24, 2014
"took the plunge with bothe versions tonight. the aroma was horrid...made me wretch. skunky bud light, peppery stale tomato and clam? horrid. the odd coral colored body was overly carbonated to the point of stomach bloating. the flavor of the light version is "less repulsive" since it’s thinner. bad clam finish, complete with heartburn." thewolf (12803) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2008

<b>["Thank" you, FatPhil]</b>
Pours muddy, pale red with no head. Aroma is disgusting, stale tomato juice, light chili and rotten leaves. Thin and sticky. Chili, tomato in flavour. Weird, unbalanced and generally disgusting.
Can. Terrible! Totally lives up to the hype! Poured a pinkish red with a bubbly white head. Aroma was full of fish, tomato and made me gag. The flavor didn’t disappoint either with a terrible combo of bud light, tomato and fish. Absolutely terrible, worst beer ever! rosenbergh (11809) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2013
24 oz can. (K-Mart) Metairie, LA.
Hazy red colour with no head.
The aroma is tomato juice. And the flavour is tomato juice... with some mild lagery notes. It's like tomato juice with bubbles. Not totally disgusting. Bloody Mary Light.

Can 739ml @ Hotel Room, Fairfield Inn, Placentia, CAshrubber85 (11618) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2007
Pours cloudy orange with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of tomato juice and hint of pepper. Taste is light to medium sweet. Body is medium, texture is lumpy, carbonation is flat.
24 oz can. Tomato and clam juice with just a hint of skunky malt. Cloudy orange red color with no head (at least the bud chelada had that). Tomato and clam juice flavor with more of a skunky malt flavor. I agree with IrishBoy -like you had drank a Budweiser Chelada on a empty stomach and vomited it back up. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 8, 2009
good lord i would rather gouge my eyes out than ever taste this again. why does this exist????????? BVery (11364) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 28, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Can. Pinkish pour with no head. Aroma and taste is tomato, clam juice, and celery salt. Like a very thin bloody mary, but with an odd tinge to it. Giving them a little credit for trying something different. hopscotch (11246) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2008
Can... VBWT2008... Murky orange/red concoction with a small, fizzy, pinkish head... looks like a red-eye, as it should. Sweet, overripe tomato and shellfish are exhibited in the nose. The flavor is much the same, sans the shellfish, with a cloying sweetness that almost forces my gag reflex to kick in. Moderate, spicy heat. The non-light version didn’t seem nearly as cloyingly sweet. Thick, tomato juice mouthfeel with subtle carbonation. Not at all good, but I have to give mucho kudos to Beerlando for having the balls to bring this “treat” to the Throwdown!
