Pleasantly surprised...but not impressed.
With an aggressive pour it produced large, soapy bubbles over it's clear yellowish color, there was definitely a malty nose which I didn't expect, and I could smell it inside of a Mexican restaurant! The taste was very average and inoffensive, there was the "cooked veggie" taste, maybe it was corn, I don't know, the mouthfeel also surprised me, it was not as thin as I anticipated, it filled the mouth a little. Overall, an acceptable hot weather "lawn mower" beer, nothing to seek out.

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.
