Notes/Commercial Description:
Budweiser & Clamato Chelada and Bud Light & Clamato Chelada are a combination of our classic American-style lagers, Budweiser and Bud Light, and the rich, spicy taste of Clamato Tomato Cocktail. We follow the traditional brewing process for Budweiser and Bud Light. Clamato is carefully blended with the beer to create the proper balance of the crisp finish of Budweiser or Bud Light and the signature taste of Clamato.

16 oz can into a wine glass.

A: Pours a cloudy chum color. This beer is too good to have much of a head (what's there is pink colored) and any form of retention or lacing.

S: After inhaling the nose, I feel like I can speak fluent Slovak, kill a cape buffalo with my bare hands, and play a right-handed guitar left-handed. It's almost like this beer is speaking to me "Are you ready to taste perfection? Or am I too much beer for you?" And given the intoxicating blend of brine, sea water, tomato, and vomit, the latter just might be the case.

T: This beer is so meta. It actually tastes just like my vomit after having several great offerings (obviously nothing that compares to this, though...) Because of Bud Light Clamato, I no longer have to spend $20 or so worth of craft beer and eat a spaghetti dinner to achieve such post-puking zen, I can simply drink this and reach nirvana for only $2 a can.

M: This is the future of beer. Why? Because this doesn't need a palate feel - since it drinks just like upchuck, it frees my mind over such like texture, carbonation, and dryness; instead allowing me to achieve the aforementioned zen-like state after a good upchuck. I have just one more thing to say: pivo je život. See! Told you I can now speak fluent Slovak - I didn't even have to rely on Google Translate, either.

O: I have transcended the cosmic eye of God, and have come out of its collapsing corona a new man. Thanks to Bud Light Clamato, I have now achieved evanescence on this corporeal place. In fact, I don't need to drink other beer anymore: this brings everything I could want from the hobby, all in a single can. However, I am not worthy of experiencing such brilliance - for that reason, I will have to pour this down the sink after five or so sips. But hey, I'd like to see Parabola, Rochefort 10, BCBS, or FBS put me in an evanescent state after only five sips. Which all of them fail to accomplish, miserably at that. I am unworthy of standing in the presence of this nectar of the gods, I will now have to free it from its misery.

1/5: It's so thought-provoking, it ends up being offensive
