Poured from a 12-ounce bottle into a pint glass at Dos Amigos in Torrington, Conn.
A: Poured a pale, golden yellow color with a fizzy head of bubbly carbonation which settled to a soda-like ring. Moderate to fierce carbonation and good clarity, at least.
S: Smells of corn husk and some sugary sweet grain. A little bit of gritty malt grains and cooked rice.
T: Flavor is pretty spot on with the aroma; a sweet, quick flash of corn, rice and adjunct malt grains. There's a thin, watery wash of dry hops towards a sweetened veggie finish which vanishes almost completely after a moment. Pretty much swill macro, but better than Corona and equal to most BMC, IMO.
M: Mouthfeel is medium bodied, super crisp, clean and drying in the finish.
D: Given its status as a cheap-ass macro swill brew by Mexicans and its "what's that?" factor amongst your friends at a Mexican joint, you can;t be faulted for going there. I've seen it cheap enough for sixers in stores where I'd get it over Corona to bring to a Mexican-theme party or something, but the buck stops there. Fine for what it is, the Mexican High Life.

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.
