A fairly good Mexican Macro Lager,with a Bit more Flavor then Most other Mexican Adjunct Lagers,I have always Liked a lot of Mexican Lagers because of their smoothness,they may not have tons of flavor,and can taste a Bit watered down @ times,but Generaly speaking,I will pick a Mexican Macro Lager Over an American Macro Lager any day of the week,Tecate may not be a Great beer,but for it's style,it is a "Good" Beer,and it is Priced right too, a 12ver cost about 10 Bucks,so it is much Cheaper then Sol or Corona,and as far as Flavor goes,Tecate has em both beat hands down,it may not be quite as Smooth as Sol or Corona,but trust me,Tecate still slides down super Fast!~
Tecate pretty much looks like most other Macro Lagers when poured,a straw yellow to semi golden color,pretty light looking,as with most Macro lagers,Not much Head to speak of,but what there is of it is fluffy white~
the aroma is pretty standard also,Grainy,Grassy,a little malty,nothing special.
where Tecate really stands out over most other Mexican OR American Mass produced Macro lagers,is it's Taste,you get the standard Grainy,light Malty flavor,but you also get a Little Hops in the Finish,overall,I enjoy this Beer quite a Bit.
I love my Craft Beers,and have no problem Paying for Quality Beer,I really enjoy a well Crafted beer with tons of Flavor,a Rocky head that last the whole beer,world class Lacing,Drinking Fine quality beer can be a wonderful Experience to say the least,But when you just want an Ice cold Beer on a Hot day,Tecate is a really nice choice,it is also a fantastic beer to take to a BBQ,Because you know damn well there will more than Likley be nothing besides light beer in all those coolers..yuck!hehe;)
Cheers & Peace2All.
