Was pretty tasteless, color was a poor amberish color, smell didn't compliment it. I essentially wrapped this up as a Mexican Busch.

Straw yellow, the familiar color of shitty AAL beers even when they come from south of the border. But hey, thanks to Tecate, they seem to sponsor cool things like fights and strip clubs. No head. Aroma has that corn and not much else feel to it.

Taste, same thing, lots of water, I can see why so many people who drink this stuff regularly do so with lime and salt. I mean, if you're at a bar or its 1,000 degrees outside, sure. But other than that, seems like just a watery lager kind of beer that doesn't do much in the way of beer ingredients.

Average overall but my favorite in the Mexican lager class. Rarely drink it out of a glass. Usually drink it straight out of the brown qaurt bottle. Color and look are yellow and fizzy. Typical adjunct lager. Smells like an adjuct lager. Taste like white bread with a hint of corn bread. Not bad and goes good on a hot day. Considering its half the price of Corona if youre looking for a mexican lager i find it hard to go wrong with a cold Tecate.
