A Lager beer with a delicious aroma of malt and hops and a delicate balance in its subtle refreshing taste.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2007 Best drank ice cold, out of the can (which does have some style), and under a hot Mexican sun if available. Clear, golden pee yellow with a short-lived sudsy white head. Stale aroma with distinct notes of adjuncts. Minimal character, but basically inoffensive smell. Flavor has some lemony tartness with light sweetness and very mild bitterness. No recognizable flavors to identify this beer with malt or hops. Clean and bland when cold, which beats Mexican water handily. Scores nostalgia points with me. This is the only beer to drink in 100 degree heat in the Sonoran bush where other beers without a shiny red aluminum shell would instantly skunk in your hand. There are worse things to be doing than wading through a Mangrove with a can of Tecate in your hand.

Color is golden pale yellow with no head from pouring, a few clearish bubbles sit around the edge. Smells very faintly of spiced sweet malt, no hop presence what so ever. Taste is more of the same, very slightly spiced sweet malt and no hop to be found. Its very clean, crisp, and lightly refreshing. Feel is a bit more medium body but lacks in roundness. Mostly watery malts. Easy drinker, but stick with Dos Equis.

Many people put this down but I prefer it over the trendy Corona and Sol. Love the tall boy 4 packs. A real summer beer.

Hardly any head. Chemical aroma. Light yellow color. Taste of alcohol and more chemicals. Thin. I had to put a lime in this just to drink it. Maybe the worst beer I have ever had.

I've definitely seen worse color from a Mexican brew, and this one has a medium gold color and quickly fading white head. Aroma is fairly light, and much like the typical aroma from an Am. Standard (and personally I don't think the word "American" should be attached in such a way to such a brew!). The flavor isn't TOO offensive...just lacks any real character and tastes a bit like a crappy lager that's been sitting around awhile before drinking.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2003 This wasnt as bad as many other mexican beers I have had. At least there is some pilsener style taste to it. My bottle was not thin, it just has such little flavor. There is a slight stale/nutty flavor in the finish. Slightly bitter, light body. Not terribly fizzy.

How do I use up seventy-five characters to say "Budweiser"? Seems to have been inconsistent. I've spent some time in Mexico and there are better "domestics" to be had.
