Bud Light Chelada

Well, well, well, you never know what’s going to happen, do you? I pop into Taco Mac in Douglasville, GA, USA for a quick beer on a Saturday afternoon, and they are giving out 16oz cans of this stuff for free – being a true BA, I felt I HAD to a least try it, so I did! (The bar staff told me there was a regular Bud version too but I suggested that it probably wouldn’t matter – perhaps I’ll never know!)
Pour is briefly fizzy and then settles to give a horrible, peach/orange colored liquid. Looks a little like one of those V8 Fruit Splash drinks. Aroma is tomato juice based initially, but then fades. The taste is similar in as much as it starts out tomato juice based, but then fades quickly to give a watery consistency with some fizz. A little spice (or is it just salt?). Perhaps a little spice or celery, but not much.
I could see drinking this on a Sunday morning in an attempt to get over a BIG Saturday night, but seeing as that happens to me about once every five years these days, basically I’m never gonna drink this again! Might serve a purpose for those at LEAST 10 years younger than me!
Interesting marketing since half of the can is in Spanish. I am guessing this is a big hit in the Hispanic community, which clearly is a HUGE, growing demographic in the USA in 2007.
Clearly NOT beer, but then again, is Bud Light on its own?!?!?
