I think this should be the same as Tecate Original. At least, that is the one that I had.
Regardless of the reviews, I like Mexican cerveza for what it is: light, crisp and easy to drink. NOT as craft beer or as something "well crafted." Simply for the feeling.
And this feels quite good to me, although a bit skunky and later on metallic in the aroma, decent enough for a lager, meaning that at least it doesn't have anything bad to the taste. Carbonation is still acceptable.
I won't overrate it but it felt good enough to back it down even on a chilly afternoon in mid January.

A good Mexican adjunct light lager. Has decent foamy head, acceptable lacing, tastes like malt, meets a fruity note, with some hop character, has bready notes with a bit of apple notes to finish. A very well made adjunct lager, has a better taste than most of the genre. Is easy to drink when it's hot outside, goes very well with Mexican food, and also quite inexpensive, and a good buy. Overall a 3 score. A favorite hot season beer. A bargain.

(24 oz can, BBD OCT 2018... purchased cold... poured into simple glass mug)

L: brilliantly crystal-clear pale amber liquid; bouncy, tight off-white head, holds fairly long

S: fresh dough, juicy apple; hint of flowery hops (if it isn't just esters)

T: lightly-toasted, lightly nutty, doughy-bready malt; bit of green apple in finish... lingering lightly bitter fruit skin (apple) note... flavor clarity is fuzzy, attack clipped

F: feather-soft, delicately foamy-fluffy, dry drop in finish... little tickle from the bubbles... plush foamy texture dominant

O: second in a short 3-beer series of 24 oz can adjunct lager reviews (preceded by Labatt Blue, followed by Sol)... possibly some German helles sensibilities here - first time drinking this from a glass and it's not all that bad

I had this years and years ago...haven't and wouldn't buy it again now that i appreciate better beer....but recently I had this given to me when I checked in to a hotel after hiking 10 miles in the rain.....so, something to be said for it being situational...but it actually wasn't as bad as I was expecting. I'd take it over any of the cheap American lagers (Bud light, coors).

A big corn taste is in this beer. It taste like they are trying to mask the corn syrup taste with some actual corn added. It's okay but I think Modelo Especial & Corona Familiar are better. Cheers! C

Pours out a clear straw color. The head is white and is gone in a second leaving no lacing.

Smells like metal with a hint of grains and a corn sweetness.

Mostly just corn and pennies in the back. Has a bit of a sourness to it in the back.

Medium bodied and highly carbonated. Might be more tolerable on a hot day.
