It had been many years since I had last tilted a Tecate. Bought a thirty rack and it may take a while to get this consumed. Less than what I recall it being. Straw color pour with a slight white top. But this is the first time I ever poured a Tecate. Always before, open beer then put in lime. That should not change. It needs the lime. Drink it very cold. With a slice of lime. Did I mention the lime?

Typical American adjunct lager, thin amber color with some nice head. Very faint smell of grains and malt. Tastes mainly of grain and malt, a touch of sweetness without much bitterness. Thin mouthfeel, decent carbonation throughout, just not very complex or sophisticated. Refreshing and easy to drink.

A good session beer. Keep ice cold. Goes well with tomato juice or Tequila and lime. I like a not-too-smokey Reposado.

Pours a yellow-orange with a slight fog to it. Head is one finger in height, white in color, and fair in retention. Aroma is corn, herbal hops, and a little rye spice cut to it. Simple, short, and staccato like. Flavor profile is dynamic display of corn, herbal and floral hops, and a little rye spice at the end. Has a nice blend of light flavors creating a flavorful, low ABV lager. Mouth feel is crisp and refreshing. Overall, this beer drinks light, is refreshing, and actually has some decent flavors - although they are simple and kept at a low volume.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 12oz bottle.

It is what it is. Cinco de Mayo, so gotta drink Mexican beer. It's probably one of the best Mexican lagers. I gave it a high taste rating just due to the fact that it's what I expect and there are way many other beers that are much worse! Refreshing and great for Cinco de Mayo!!

24 ounce can into lager glass, best before 2/2018. Pours slightly hazy medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, cracker, corn, white bread, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Poor aromas with pale malt/corn and light earthy hop notes; with minimal strength. A bit too fruity/yeasty. Taste of lemon, cracker, corn, white bread, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Mild herbal/grassy/spicy hop bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of lemon, cracker, corn, white bread, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Solid robustness and good balance of pale malt/corn and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Nicely clean on lager flavors, not too fruity/yeasty. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and light body; with a very smooth, fairly bready/grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Zero warming as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is an okay pale adjunct lager. Solid robustness and good balance of pale malt/corn and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Solidly flavorful and not too watery for the ABV. Clean pils malt/grainy corn and mild earthy hop flavors. A fairly enjoyable and non offensive offering.

Clear golden with a nice small head
Smells like urquell, pepper and skunky hops
Tastes very sweet and mild, adjunct malt and skunky hops detectable with just a tiny bit of pepper at the back

Overall my favorite Mexican AAL, way better than inbev's (gag) modelo and corona

One of the best cheap Mexican beers you can grab. Squeezing a bit of citrus in there elevates this beer to eyebrow-raising levels, but even alone it's far from the worst you could do. There's a bit of sweetness to it, as with most mexican beers, but it's far more pleasant and subtle. For its price at restaurants that sell it it's almost always the value bet, and the look of it when poured in a glass is actually decently appealing for what it is as well. Underrated.
