A fairly good Mexican Macro Lager,with a Bit more Flavor then Most other Mexican Adjunct Lagers,I have always Liked a lot of Mexican Lagers because of their smoothness,they may not have tons of flavor,and can taste a Bit watered down @ times,but Generaly speaking,I will pick a Mexican Macro Lager Over an American Macro Lager any day of the week,Tecate may not be a Great beer,but for it's style,it is a "Good" Beer,and it is Priced right too, a 12ver cost about 10 Bucks,so it is much Cheaper then Sol or Corona,and as far as Flavor goes,Tecate has em both beat hands down,it may not be quite as Smooth as Sol or Corona,but trust me,Tecate still slides down super Fast!~
Tecate pretty much looks like most other Macro Lagers when poured,a straw yellow to semi golden color,pretty light looking,as with most Macro lagers,Not much Head to speak of,but what there is of it is fluffy white~
the aroma is pretty standard also,Grainy,Grassy,a little malty,nothing special.
where Tecate really stands out over most other Mexican OR American Mass produced Macro lagers,is it's Taste,you get the standard Grainy,light Malty flavor,but you also get a Little Hops in the Finish,overall,I enjoy this Beer quite a Bit.
I love my Craft Beers,and have no problem Paying for Quality Beer,I really enjoy a well Crafted beer with tons of Flavor,a Rocky head that last the whole beer,world class Lacing,Drinking Fine quality beer can be a wonderful Experience to say the least,But when you just want an Ice cold Beer on a Hot day,Tecate is a really nice choice,it is also a fantastic beer to take to a BBQ,Because you know damn well there will more than Likley be nothing besides light beer in all those coolers..yuck!hehe;)
Cheers & Peace2All.

I'm all danked out. Having survived on nothing but high IBU IPA's for months, I bought a 12-pack of Tecate, wanting something cold and refreshing that serves it's duty then goes away without making a big relationship out of things the way IPA's are want to do. And for a fling, Tecate is the way to go. Crisp and slightly dry with soda crackers, toasted white bread and other innocuous starches being the main flavors detected. Finishes extremely clean, slight hop flavors but also no big adjuncts either. Corn/vegetable husk is not a discernible flavor. Possibly rice, which also may be why this brew finishes so dry. This beer gets low ratings because it is ubiquitous and macro, not because it tastes bad. One of the better warm weather beers you'll find, and surprisingly good.

Ice cold 12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.

A - Straw color with a fleeting head.

S - Picked up some adjuncts with no malt or hops

T - Corn, grains and some hops.

M - Adequate carbonation, very neutral finish.

O - There are far better choices if you want a Mexican beer. This one is like drinking an AAL.
