Tallboy can picked up at the LCBO. Pours a familiar pale straw colour, topped with one finger of creamy white head that is mostly gone within a minute. A patchy cap remains, fed by copious streams of bubbles from the bottom of the glass. Very slight lacing on the sides of the glass. Tecate has a very bland aroma of light grains and corn without much to support it... a bit of a stale beer smell, like a poorly-kempt frat house.
Unfortunately the taste follows the nose and offers up very little of interest - light saltine-cracker grains, barley malt, sweet corn and a very faint echo of herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Clean-tasting with no serious off-flavours. Light-bodied, thin mouthfeel with pretty low carbonation for the style. A little slippery in the mouth.
One of the better Mexican pale lagers I've had, and probably above average for the style, but there's nothing here that makes this worth seeking out. I would be very surprised if I found myself purchasing this again.
