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.

In my opinion, Bud light and Clamato, with the addition of the salt and lime, combine to create a very savory and satisfying taste sensation in your mouth. It seems to pair well with a rib eye or any well-marbled steak. I enjoy a cold Chelada on a hot summer day.
I have found, you either love it or hate it. Sure, it is not for everyone; after all, you cannot be all things to all people

there is a HUGE demographic that buys 24-25 oz beers daily, this being one of them. It's got some saltiness, some clamato, and some lime. Nothing crazy here folks, I don't need to review bud light, but they do accomplish what they set out to. The key to these is drink them frosty cold. Pop it in the freezer for 15-20 minutes and get back to it. I like my stouts and abbey ales too, but the lower end alternatives like this aren't bad at all.

A: The beer is quite hazy yellowish orange in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin off white head that quickly died down, leaving only a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of Manhattan clam chowder are present in the nose.
T: The initial taste starts out having flavors of Manhattan clam chowder and then transitions to flavors of Bud Light Lime with notes of Clamato in the background. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this to be undrinkable and didn't even really resemble a "beer" except for some notes of Bud Light Lime in the back end of the taste. It seems like the Clamato may serve as a better base to mix with other types of alcohol, such as hard liquor.

This drink is the best damn stuff I have had in 45 years of drinking!
Why in hell they don't sell it in Ontario is beyond my understanding....we drink more beer here than anywhere in Canada. It tastes so amazing!
Canada invented Clamato!!!,
We invented the cocktail called a "Cesaer" using Clamato juice.
Why don't they sell "Bud Lite Cheladas" here????
I have to wait to get back to the States to get it again.
PLEASE...Anhauser-Busch
Bring them to Ontario!! Please!
Thank you.
