2.36/5 rDev -6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5
Poured into a becker glass
A: A golden straw color with little carbonation. It keeps a decent lacing around the glass.
S: Alright, I don't normally give a 1 in this category but holy hell does this reek. I don't know if it's because the beer wasn't fresh or if this is just how the beer smells but god does it stink. It has a corny smell and a cooked veggies smell. When I swirled it around and sniffed it smelled like when you leave baked broccoli covered and then after several hours you remove the cover. it's almost as if the beer was passing gas in my face or something.
T: The taste is thankfully not as horrible as the smell. It is overall sweet with a sweet corn flavor that sticks around long after you finish drinking. It tastes like if you just baked some corn and then took a bite. I also detected a tiny bit of malt but it was very faint. No hops were detected.
MF: Watery and even a little creamy. Leaves the mouth lubricated and goes down smooth.
O: I'm not sure how I feel about this one. The smell is horrible but the taste isn't as bad. Still, the flavor is full of adjunct and there is no detectable quality ingredients. I would only have this if it was this or Budweiser or Bud Light.

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.
