Pours clear, medium golden color. Almost no head and only a slight aroma of grain. Flavorvis typical of an adjunt lager - easy drinking, ricey, bitterness just above average and high carbonation. Meh. Okay.

Two bucks at the Heart & Dagger down by the lake in Oakland. Pretty great back with tequila - better than water, anyway. So why not?

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a mug.
Aroma- Has a very corn/grain aroma and a wee bit of hops
Appearance- A BMC color with a small white head
Taste- Has a very watery taste, sort of like a weak Miller
Palate- A light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Has a dry finish
Overall- A poor to average beer, there are many better Mexican beers out there. Remember that Corona Light is not one of the better ones I was talking about

Oh what the hell. Drank thisw for a short amount of time, wandered away from it. One of those beers that take son a different personality when doctored up with lime and salt, but unadjusted it is a fairly fizzy joint that lacks taste. What's there is corned up and barely bitter. Just not a good thing no matter how you slice it or spice it....

A little bit of lemon in the flavor and aroma, a pale lager after that, not very unique apart from the small impact of lemon flavor, although it is decent.

To be honest here this beer has some horrible reviews because it is considered the garbage of garbage beers because it is cheap and people turn their noses to it. I honestly believe if the company relabeled the brand it would do pretty good. It has a miller high life taste to it, with a lemon zest after taste. I do not care for non dark beers but this one I love.

Made my review comparing to other Cervazes. Great color and smell, not as great tasting as Dos Equis Amber or Corona Firmiliar but not bad. A little too much carbonation.

Had this at the local Mexican joint. Here goes:

A: Yellow but well-carbonated. OK head but without lacing. Standard adjunct lager.

S: Lots of corn. And then lots more corn. Some barley and hops, but these are dominated by corn.

T: Follows the smell, which isn't a good thing.

F: Good. Nice and well-carbonated.

O: Bad beer. Would rather have a Bud.

I don't have too much to say about this weak lager. It tastes similar to other Mexican beers like Sol and Corona. There isn't too much to this beer. It's not the worst I've ever had, but it is definitely below average. Surprisingly this beer rates better among BAs than Pacifico, which I thought was a much superior beer. Oh well, to each their own. I won't be returning to this one.

Lite gold and thin white head disappears immediately. Bread notes and flavor. Lite, crisp mouthfeel. Easy to drink cerveza on a hot Florida day.

Tecate is a tricky beer, if you can get some made in the northern states of Mexico you´ll get a good beer. If you get some from middle or southern Mexico you´ll get something awful.
