Tecate is an overrated beer in mind, bitter and bland in my opinion, and far inferior to something like Modelo, if we're talking mainstream Mexican beer. However, Tecate is a lighter beer in general, which immediately made me skeptical as to how light their Tecate Light had to beer. It had to be like water in comparison.

Today I can say that I find Tecate Light more appealing than regular Tecate...but that's not saying much. Tecate is a mediocre beer with less than average qualities and Tecate Light, by comparison, is still a relatively lesser light lager than the domestic offerings like Miller Lite.

Appearance - Bright, sunshine yellow with a pure-white, foamy head. Remarkably unremarkable.

Smell - Water with faint hits of rice and grain. Uninviting and bland.

Taste - Follows the nose in the water department, clearly proving to be largely made up of water and mild rice and grains. Inoffensive but so much so that the beer lacks a discernible identiy.

Mouthfeel - Heavily, unattractively carbonated and watery.

Tecate Light is one of the most forgettable beers I've had in recent memory, but not because it's bad, but because it's indifferent and thoroughly unimpressive.
