Tecate Light | Cervecería Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma, S.A. de C.V. Poured from the can into a pint glass, this brew's head is two fingers thick, with solid lacing, and a light straw gold body.

I smell corn with some grassy funk going on.

Again, corn, with a slight malt sweetness that makes this really drinkable.

The mouthfeel here is medium-light with fair carbonation.

I'll rate Tecate Light with an overall 4.25. Of the slew of light AAL's out there, I'd choose this in a top three selection. This is a light brew with flavor and drinkabliliy most other's just don't contain.

I bought a 20 pack for $10.99 with a coupon. The label states 3.9% alcohol. This is a beer for hot weather basically a very light beer. Not bad considering about .50 cents a can.

It's low on flavor, but it's light and refreshing if you are looking for a lawnmower beer. It's definitely better with lime, because it needs all the flavor enhancement it can get.

Light yellow with small white cap.

Aroma is mild grain and mild hop. Maybe I'm imagining the hops.

Taste is richer than I expected which is to say there is some. Usual adjunct grain flavor without any noticeable grain harshness. Rather pleasant actually.

Light medium texture with good carbonation.

Overall it's good brew for what it is, basically something for all day beach drinking or a frat party.

Served in a seidel, it pours a clear pale yellow, with a 1 cm head that dissipates almost instantly.

You must really exercise your imagination to detect corn and malty sweetness in this beer's aroma. Perhaps a citric note.

No imagination is good enough, however, to try to make up for its flavor. Residual sweetness, metaphysical bitterness, and a speculative corn note. Perhaps.

Watery mouthfeel, high carbonation.

Say no to Tecate Light.

Serving Type: 355 mL Can

A- Pours a clear, pale golden colour topped by a fizzy white head that quickly dissipates. Lots of large, visible bubbles. No lacing.

S- Nothing other than the faint aroma of boiled corn.

T- Same as the aroma. Corny but not a corn sweetness as it is with a lot of other Light Lagers. Not bad at all.

M- Light (but not overly) Body and Moderately High carbonation.

O- Just another non-offensive, poundable Light Lager that is easy drinking.

Decent light beer. Pours a pale straw color with minimal head that reduces to a splotch or two. Aroma is slight corn/metallic. Taste is corny, but then again that predominates in the style. Really not that offensive, but probably wouldn't have it again.
