24oz tall can courtesy of, um, somebody special. No visible freshness date.
Poured into a Flying Fish pint glass.
Smell, grain husks, corn, and a biscuit aroma. Some bread flavors as well, but no hops are present in the nose. Well, at least not my nose.
Taste, smooth, with plenty of husky flavors to back up the little bit of hops that are detectable. Big flavors of corn are right up there, with that biscuit dough flavor that just lingers on the tongue. Hop bitterness is very low, and almost non existent. What little hop flavor washes over my taste buds, is quickly washed away by the very husky flavors of this beer.
Overall, not bad for the style, and I scored it as such. I would take a can of this any day over a Corona or BMC. Tecate is a great no frills, no thinking beer. I could put away a few of these on a sweltering hot day and not think twice. Good for what it is, a Macro Lager.

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.
