I first noticed Tecate in the movie Hellboy 2, of all places. Out of curiosity, I picked some up and tried it. Fairly tasty, but I thought it'd be stronger.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped 05264. Sampled on October 24, 2014. No lime wedge.

Pale yellow pour with big long lasting fizzy white head.

The aroma is of toasted biscuit and barley grain. A tiny almost invisible hop bite.

The body is light and refreshing.

The taste is also more malty than anything else akin to a German lager. A clean finish. There is nothing unique about it.

Tecate! Tecate! Arriba!

Appearance (3.25) : Que Pasa! A fluffy white two fingered head that's actually pretty tight knit. It sits on top of a golden yellow body that I can almost read through. Cap recedes to a large ring after a minute or so. Lacing is virtually non-existent.

Aroma (3.25) : NON-skunked corn, barley, spice, fresh hop, and the bottle yields a little cooked peas. A clean, non-offensive aroma. Bouquet is medium strength.

Taste (3) : Refreshing, if a little corny. It's got a little hop flavor in there towards the end but it comes off as more of a bitter corn flavor. Otherwise it's mainly washed out corn flavor with a little barley. Pretty boring, actually. It's like a light beer with hop. There's not much in the flavor department here, even for a Mexican Lager.

Mouthfeel (2.75) : Light bodied all the way, and pretty carbonated.

Overall (3.07) : Not too impressed, and I liked Sol a lot better. Next time I reach for a Mexican Lager beer, I'll go for Sol or Modelo Especial. Those are my top two taco beers.
