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.

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.
