2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale lager, you say? Ok, well, I’ve had this more than enough times and am glad I found my notes on this. Here we go, this oughta be fun.
More than enough times, this was poured into a pint glass and a pilsener and actually, there really wasn’t much difference.
The appearance was a super transparent looking light golden yellow color with a decent half finger white foamy head that dissipates at a rapid pace. Lacing - what lacing, there isn’t any lacing anywhere. Ever.
The smell was some cooked corn/rice adjuncts.
The taste was sweet through the cooked corn/rice adjuncts. There wasn’t any aftertaste nor was there any finish.
On the palate, it sat exceptionally light and came across in a fairly bland sort of way indicating that there really isn’t much here anywhere. Its sessionable, if anything.
Overall, pale lager, hmmm...not really, its a light lager as there’s no pale-ness anywhere in this beer. Does it go great with Mexican food? Actually, it sure does as there’s nothing really off nor is there anything great about this beer. Its nothing more than a Cinco De Mayo sort of beer if that’s your thing, but I’m not Mexican. Cheers to whoever likes this.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2014 Light on alcohol but also light on flavor, Tecate tastes like corn water and cheap malts. Not something I would choose to have again.

simple straightforward lager with no extra flavours or complexity. Serve cold for a refreshing drink but don’t expect anything special

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle pours a pale yellow color with a fizzy white head that leaves light lacing. Similarities to Dos Equis but not quite as flavorful.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
24oz can. Red label. Pours deep yellow. No head. Aroma of stale corn, pale cereal. Flavor has a adjunct character that lasts forever. Boring. Disgusting. Not worth the $1.29 I paid for it. I’ll stick with a 24oz can of Modelo for a dollar more. (4051)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
It has been one of my favorite beers since I was a young drinker and maybe that makes me give it a little more, but if you really try this beer (especially in the bottle not in the can), you´re gonna love it´s different savor. That bitter, sweet and salty taste gives you the feeling of an original Mexican beer.
And, cheap, so, it´s really worth it.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Two brown 325ml bottles sank in 31 degrees Centigrade at a random beach bar in Acapulco on 25th March 2014. It’s an odourless, tasteless lager that quenches your thirst. Medium to semi-sweet in nature but it could have been any number of similar beers in Mexico or anywhere hot in the world. Clear, golden and clean (unlike the fridge it came out of). Had worse lagers but have had plenty better too.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2014 Pours with a thin white head that dissapears quickly. Almost no aroma followed by corn and pale straw flavor. Very thin on the tongue and throughout the sip. A Common mass produced thin flavorless lager.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle (Old Notes)-Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of corn, grains, and slight hops. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew fills the need on a hot summer day.
