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.

Better than Corona and Dos Equis and cheaper. I actually find it quite nice when it is ice cold with a lime. There are better lagers out there, but I'd give this a try. Personal opinion - try to find it in a can. These AAL's get skunky (and not in a good way) to me in bottles.
