12 oz. bottle. Just like in the old Michelob commercial: "Tecate makes a light?" And it’s only had 25 ratings in 6 years! Well, now it’s at Sam’s Wines in Downer Grove, in the loose bottle rack. So I can buy just one instead of a pack.
Thin corn-yellow pour, brief head. For a light, it’s got a very sugary smell, almost like a cheap Russian malt liquor. Taste is mostly corn soda, if anything. I shouldn’t rate this as low as I am, since it’s more tasteless than bad tasting.

Found this one bottled in St. Charles, Illinois. Bright, clear light yellow pour, bubbly with a wispy white head that dissippated to nothing rapidly, lager-y nose, slightly dry, a bit of green grape and astringent lemon, has a sharp bite to it in the mouthfeel, tannins of black tea, citrusy hoppiness. Finished quite strong. For a Mexican lager and a light, I was pretty impressed.

This beer is classic in SINALOA, everyone buys it, i realize it does not have a marvelous taste but can get you trough the night, it doesn’t get you very drunk as his sister TECATE RED does.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - JUN 11, 2007
From a twist-off 12 oz. bottle with a coded freshness date on shoulder of bottle, sampled at a cold temperature in a restaurant shaker glass. Poured a clear, very pale yellowish golden with a small foamy white head that quickly dissipates into a fine sudsy lacing. A pretty clean nose, faint aromas of sweet corn fruity, lemony, and lightly grainy. Good carbonation and a softly crisp, dryish, thin, medium-light bodied mouthfeel. Bland tasting, but hey, it is a macro light lager, passable drinkability, thin sweet pale, grainy malts, a tad sugary, sweet corny, a very mild lemon tea-like hop flavor, and a dryish sweet malty with a touch rough graininess. For a macro light lager, it’s not that bad, drinkable in a pinch, went well with the chicken tortilla soup I had for lunch today.

This is the kind of shitty macro stuff that and only can be named beer for its ingredients , not quality, taste like plastic oatmeal, watery and salty at the same time.Tough this is probably the most consumed in my beloved country, Mexico. I prefer drink water than this!

OK, hear me out. This is a great light beer. It’s all I drank last time I was in Mexico. Here’s the thing. It has this subtle taste, almost like a spice, that really turns me on. This is unlike any american macro crap light out there. I can’t explain this!! Is it the mexican water?? Oh fountains of Mexicana, bring life and love and truth to the people. Look at me spouting off about a light beer. This is certainly uncharacteristic. I’m an IPA guy. I love to taste my beers. But please know that I am serious about this 2.5/5 rating. Next time in mexico try a tall boy of this stuff and ruminate about life, and how if only there were boots you could jump to the moon with...

As with another commentator on here, I only tried this as it was free at my holiday resort near Cancun! It is a disgusting beer - like US mainstream light lagers Bud, Coors etc, but even more disgusting, tasteless and sweet. Not good, poor value even for free!!!

well, tecate light, the whole can in spainish, the regular is kinda bad but this is better, the taste is watered down which makes it more easy going, a poolside hugger!
