2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keep in mind I had mine out of a can, into an icey cold mug, and at a Mexican restaurant with lots of salsa, but that it what this beer if for. Nice fluffy head and very pale yellow color and not much nose. This is a very clean, crisp and refreshing lager, with sweet malt tones (and I did not use the lime, although you certainly may). Yes, it is an American Standard and tastes like it, but it is better than most. I’ll take this over Corona anyday.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
It’s not that it taste bad (it doesn’t) it just doesn’t taste real good either. It taste very, very much like average American swill (Bud/Miller). I, for one, find that most Beaner beers have a unique flavor among them. Like them or not, Mexican beer usually taste different that American Domestic. Tecate is the one big exception. Even with some salsa chips and limes this doesn’t taste like a Mexican beer. And it’s expensive: I paid $10 for a 12 pack. Even at half the price it’s not worth it. If you must try it, have 1 at a restaurant, then move on. Don’t get stuck with 12 of them like I am.

It’s a lot like Corona, only the flavor is more mild, almost sweet.

A decent beer if fresh. If old, avoid like the plague. Very MacroAmerican Brew feel to it with pale yellow color, no head and almost no flavor.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2003 Old Milwaukee with a Sombrero. Tastes like the can - but I bought a bottle! Remind me not to order next timemI eat Mexican - maybe I'm missing the lime?

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
One of my favorite ’lighter’ Mexican beers, although it is definitely not a light. Tecate is an equal pick to Corona when trying to order a beer to compliment Mexican food. Like Dos Equis, I prefer to have this beer with the lime rimming the glass for a pleasant combination of flavors. However, I’ll take the Dos Equis if I have to chose between the two unless I’m just in the mood for something different.

A mediocre mexican beer, but not really worth my money. The aroma is iffy, the taste is nothing more than moderately appealing, but the beer fades and its tastes is not so good near the end. I think Dos Equis is a much better alternative.
