Trying to get through my notes from my recent Mexico trip...

A - Pours a pale straw colour, finger of head which quickly dissipates and leaves no lacing.

S - Mild corn, apple juice, grassy hints and bready grain.

T - Mild again, much like the scent, sweet corn, sour apples, grassy and bready grains.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and wet.

O - It's difficult to differentiate the flavours from the traditional Corona import I'm used to. Nothing spectacular here, just an easy drinking tropical destination bevy.

Poured into a Pint Glass. The 24oz Can I got this in looks like a damn battery!

Appearance - Light yellow straw that's super clear with moderate levels of carbonation. Head is around 2 fingers in width which quickly disappears.

Smell - Wet Grassy and vegetable scents with some cereal grains and a funky corn smell that isn't all that great. There's some malts in here too, but you really can't pick up on them right away

Taste - Cereal Grains and Corn along with some malt flavors, which are more present here than in the smell. There's nothing offensive in here but there's also nothing in terms of flavor, it's all very watered down.

Mouthfeel - Very light in body and the carbonation is not all that bad. All that combined with the watery taste makes this easy to drink.

Overall - I wasn't expecting much out of Tecate, and my expectations were set appropriately. For an Adjunct Lager, there's nothing really offensive about this beer and it's easy to drink, but in the end, its just a average American/Mexican style beer that has nothing going for it

Out of a can while sailing out of Dana Point, California.

Man... My brother and my homie Dick and I went for a sail, so we needed a light beer on this glorious California winter day.

We had already ingested some other medicinal substances, and even with that, it couldn't make this beer taste good.

Heavy metallic flavor out of the can. Very insipid and not inspiring.

Don't get this playa wrong, it wuznt terrible, but damn... not my first choice.
