12 oz. can poured into a Duvel tulip glass with no freshness date consumed on Red Wednesday, 2013.
A- Transparent, dull, golden pour with a moderate white head that quickly fizzles to a thin, which hangs for a while and then nothing, nothing, nothing – nothing at all. Not much visible carbonation.
S- Clean malt, cooked corn, and fermented vegetal aromas. If I try really hard I can barely detect a bit of Hops spice.
T- The taste easily shows up the aroma. It starts with a very subtle, clean, and slightly sweet malt flavor that is thankfully very far from cloying. Than a very noticeable hops spice, and bitterness kicks in and lasts through the finish. I'm also getting some weird herbal, soapy notes that almost remind me of cilantro. Maybe this beer would go well with Mexican food.
M- On the lighter bodied side, but not the lightest American adjunct lager out there. Nice and crisp too, which is a plus. Low carbonation.
O- Somehow this Tecate tastes better than any I've ever had before. I had many, and always enjoyed Tecate for what it is – a great, cheap, beach beer.

From a can. I bought a suitcase at AM/PM as an emergency step when the kegerator ran dry of Mirror Pond.
Not as bad as you have been led to believe. This is the definitive Mexican macrobrew, and it's better than any American macro. Still, a little too much corn and maybe rice.
