Really I don´t like light lagers very much; So I cannot say much about this one.

Pours a poor yellow color without head and no lace, Smell is malty but weak, Flavor is watery, Easy to drink. Refreshing.

I think is better try this beer in bottle, If you want you can add limes.

Light Mexican beer, its flavor is good, its aroma accentuated a little in spite of its lightness, its presentation is magnifies, very tends to be sold in my country, by his low carb, easy to digest and to taste, it is obtained anywhere, is not expensive, his appearance had the distinctive color of pilsener beer, drink directly from the aluminum can is good

Well, I cannot say much in favor about a light beer, no matter what brand it is. BUt this at least does not taste awfull. Just a little of water tasting. BUt if you want to hang with your friends and not get drunk, then here you are. The flavor is a little close to Tecte regular, but you can get the light angle.

Clear yellow color, very white head. There is nothing about the smell, you have to take some deep breaths to feel some malt. Mediocre taste also, malt and corn, some citric taste. I dont know what else to say, the taste is very light, light mouthfeel also... the taste leaves very quickly.

My girlfriend likes this beer... she said its easy to drink and doesnt get you too fat (31 Kcal)... lol

reviewed 4-2-04 and taken from notes. Very light gold almost yellow. Full head which is white and full carbonation. Cut straw in nose and leans toward neutrality. Flavor is of the same cut straw and body is chalky, not right for style. All in all, not a bad attempt at a light beer.

The light brother of the original Tecate beer. A brand born in a brewery in Baja California, that was bought a long time ago by the macro Cuauhtémoc-Moctezuma.
These two beers are also available in bottles.
Clear yellow; light malty smell; you can find some bitterness; some hops as an aftertaste and very drinkable in any tropical weather.

Tecate Light I believe is only found in Mexico. I had this when down in Puerto Vallarta with some friends. I had this in hot weather so in that case it hit the spot, very cold and crisp. It poured a light yellow with no head to speak of, minimul to no lacing. Smell is of light citrus and waterdowned hops. The taste has a minimul blast of hops and alot duller than regular version. Feels flat but crisp in mouth. Drinkable in the sultry sun of Mexico but on any given day this is not the beer for me.
