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

The best of the Mexican beers. Best really cold and with a touch of lime.

Decent beer, but ya gotta have it ice cold, and in the can. Pour some lime on the can and a little salt, and wallah! Mexican beer the way it should be drunk! (kind of a double-meaning there.. hehe)

It smells weak, looks like water in the glass, but actually tastes pretty good. It is sweeter than I expected, and smooth, with no aftertaste whatsoever. In a Mexican restaurant this might be my first choice. Granted, it’s the lesser of several evils, but at least it wasn’t sour and skunky. It certainly could have been worse.

In the bottle Tecate is a smooth beer with very little bitter aftertaste.

Get it in the bottle! Adda lime, and you’ve got a great beer for your hammock.

Gotta agree with NOWSHOWJONES, I’ve been to Tijuana a few times, and this beer keeps the dust out of your throat. A tasty all-purpose beer. Tecate is sold in a ’cuyoama’ which is a quart bottle, in the local stores. If you have the benefit of having a friend with a house in Tijuana, buying these large bottles makes this the cheapest beer ever. The quart bottles have a 20 cent deposit on them, but if you do havef our empties to redeem, you pay around $1.50 a beer. So a gallon of beer runs $6.00. You’d be hard pressed to do better, unless you prefer that heileman swill.

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.

Man, this beer sucks ass. Oh, no wonder, it’s from Mexico.
