1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tecate is like a granola bar. Pretty damn good if there is absolutely nothing else... I went to Air Force survival school and, other than a few granola bars and what ever I found in the wilderness, I had nothing to eat for 5 days. They were awesome! I asked myself why I never tried these before. When I got home I bought a box. This was 8 years ago- I still have half a box left!

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, husks), lightly hoppy (herbs). Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, husky, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Just another fizzy yellow Mexican lager.

This is one of my favorite beers. I like the taste. I drink it with Mexican food. It is good with salt and a slice of lime. Excellent Beer!!

Yellow. Corn aroma, no bitterness. Poor tropical style lager.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2003 Pale golden appearance with striking clarity, a light carbonation, and a “don’t blink or you’ll miss it” foam. The nose gives an inviting blend of malt and hops with a slight peppery note. There’s a slight sourness, maybe skunkiness, that gets masked behind an otherwise agreeable aroma. This is a medium bodied, easy drinking beer, smooth on the palate but also carrying a little ruggedness with a gentle carbonation. An almost herbal, fruit estery flavor briefly questions the tip of the palate and makes you think that this brew is not all as simple as it might seem. This is followed by a grainy dryness that balances against an adequately weighted malt backbone. A disappointing sourness creeps into the aftertaste, encouraging a swift second sip (or guzzle).

You know, the Mexicans have made some beer I atually like. This is no different. Good lager with the hint of bitterness that is pleasing instead of overpowering.
