Tecate is a tricky beer, if you can get some made in the northern states of Mexico you´ll get a good beer. If you get some from middle or southern Mexico you´ll get something awful.

Good for getting drunk while your eating tacos in the Summer. That's it.

Straw yellow in appearance. The head dissipates quickly. The aroma is light with a bit of a sour smell. Mild taste that's uneventful. Good mouthfeel with a dry finish. Overall, an average AAL. I think this would be more enjoyable on a hot day. FWIW, I reviewed this after pouring it into a glass, but I enjoyed it more drinking it straight from the can.

Can sampled in Cabo San Lucas, where this seems to be a popular convenience store beer but rarely available at restaurants or bars. A very pale straw hue with anemic white foam and next to no aroma. I get a slight corn sweetness, minimal skunk or grain husk.

Taste is similarly bland and unassuming. Few of the rough edges found in its competitors but what's left over is ... Pretty hard to pin down. Might just be the most dull beer I've yet to sample. At least skunk tastes like something. There's a corn syrup sweetness and that's about all. Watery body that is oddly coupled with fairly mellow carbonation ... Usually thin beers are fizzy. If one really and truly focuses there's a grassy hop note. Shouldn't be this hard though. Far too sterile and stripped down, although some might rank it above its countrymen due to a lack of clear cut flaws. Its hard to criticize a performance when the performer takes no risks.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, there was no date on the bottle that I could find.

APPEARANCE: pours a light yellow color, mostly clear but there were suspended bits of something floating about, this is not appropriate for the style, there was a less than one-finger white head that dissipated almost completely in seconds, very lightly carbonated with a small amount of lacing.

SMELL: corn, it smells like corn.

TASTE: there is not much malt sweetness on the front end, it tastes like corn and barely has a hop presence at all.

PALATE: lightly carbonated, light body.

OVERALL: this is the worst beer I've ever had, NAFTA was clearly a BIG mistake, I have never given a rating this low, If I finished mowing the lawn and had to choose between bottled water and Tecate, I would just drink water.
