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.

Drinking this right from the can. This version of Tecate has only been on the shelves for about six months and I wanted to try it so here goes...
Smells alright. Tastes like a good adjunct lager. If the abv of 3.7% is correct then this is a perfect Summer Barbeque beer. And it is better tasting than most of the more popular light beers. Mouthfeel was light and very fizzy (from the can) also quite refreshing.
