UPDATED: DEC 10, 2003 One of the better american standards i think. Doesnt get warm quick and quenches the thirst perfectly. Cheap but nothing to go too wild over.

Fairly cheap swill. Nothing too special going on here. Chemical taste and no head make for a flat watery beer without anything really going for it.

There was cinnamon here, I swear. My wife verified it as well. They must have dusted the top of the bottle with a touch of cinnamon sugar is all I can figure. It faded. There actually were some faint floral hops to go along with the taste of adjuncts.

There is something deep in my memory about this. I used to collect beer cans as a kid and I'm sure I had one of these in the 1970s. The label must not have changed one bit. It pours rather richly yellow with a chemical white foam. The aroma is dusty and sweet, anticipating the first sweet corn flavors to pass my lips. It finishes with a dried apple flavor and an absence of offensiveness. Decent, but not overdone carbonation. Not a bad beer, especially for a Mexican-brewed American Standard.

It wasn't as bad as I was expecting. It was actually fairly drinkable and didn't become undrinkable after it warmed a little. There's actually a surprising bit of malt flavor and while that doesn't mean it was malty, it just means that it was maltier than more beers in the style. I even started to pick up a little hop bitterness at the end. I had this from the bottle.

this Mexican beer is one of the best often imported to the USA and better then corona but for the price often charged for this beer you can get a much better beer fo rthe same and some times less

Tecate, a great Domestic beer and one of my favorites. The perfect beer for a nice hot day when you just want to relax.

Very light yellow, no head at all, no smell. Light inoffensive flavor. Carbonation. Blah.
