Budweiser & Clamato "Chelada"
This is one of those, you know it's a bad idea but have to try it anyway senarios.Curiosity finally got the best of me, I had to try it.
Holy crap this stuff is beyond terrible. People actually like this?!
It smells like what would happen if you wore a pair of salmon as shoes for few days. And it tastes like I imagine rancid sardine juice would taste. I'd rather drink pickle brine.
A buddy's review: "Tastes like the piss of an alchoholic cod, with a little tomato." How he knows what that tastes like, I don't know. Maybe that's his secret to catching more fish than me...
Quote from a roomate I con'd into drinking it: "It's like post tramatic stress, but in my mouth. The taste won't go away, I think I'm scared for life."
My other roomate declined to comment. However he did disappear into the bathroom for quite awhile.

Margaritaville Brewing - Landshark Lager
Normally I don't buy beer that comes in a clear bottle (UV light can damage good beer), but one of my roomates brought this back for me from his recent road trip so how could I say no.
Turns out it's pretty tasty! Very refreshing too. It's got enough flavor to be interesting but light enough to be drinkable on a hot day. Only downside is to get it localy it's nearly $9/six pack.

Mmm. Poured a deep amber color with a off white head. It is an interesting ale to describe. Compared to an IPA, this has a thicker body that's a bit malty like an irish red but with a bunch more hops. It's not as hoppy as their IPA's but it's a decent balance IMO between how malty it is. Definitely worth a try if you haven't had it before and are a fan Stone (which I am).
