Small sample from a 25 oz can. Smells and taste like a spicy tomato juice, kinda of like a bad bloody mary. No thanks.

Can... Its basically a Red Eye made with Clamato instead of straight tomato juice. I like to drink Red Eyes when I tailgate and cheap pale lager is all thats available. I would have scored this one higher if it didnt have the shellfish juice and other spices in there. I like my Red Eye with straight-up tomato juice. This one is a touch spicier than regular Bud Chelada, so Im liking it a little more.

It had been a few years since we tried to drink the debacles that were Chelada and Chelada Light. Didnt come close to finishing either, and the regular version is quite possibly the worst excuse for a beer Ive ever had. I recently had the Tecate spicy one though, and didnt hate it. So I went into this $2.59 gas station gem wondering if its 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. Its 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.

ordybill (1452) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAY 2, 2016
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 dont mind this at all, but would far prefer to make my own. Plus, this size of can is ridiculous.

Bricks (1017) - Delaware, USA - JAN 22, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2016 Heinous, putrid aroma. Medium pink appearance. Ocean water, funk and clam taste. black pepper.

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