This is a pretty good beer for a Mexican beer but doesn't measure up to American standards. The best part about this beer is that Toby Keith mentions it in a song.

Fizzy, white head. Pours straw colored, clear. Very carbonated. Has a skunky, sweet nose--a little malty there. Flavor is faint bitter up front and slight malt at the end. Otherwise, not much else. In NC, this is not a very cheap beer, but when I lived in TX, it cost about as much as it should. Better than bud, but not by much.

Pours a yellow color with a small head that sticks around. Aroma is grassy and metallic. Taste is the same. Better than some other american standards.

Smells sweet and slightly skunked, no head, very little carbonation. A pale golden color. Taste is fairly common american standard, better than others in the style.

A decent beer, I'm surprised considering its an American Standard, I was expecting a more budwiezerish taste. It reminds me of the Pacifico Clara. Decent beer.

There is nothing really standoutish about this beer - and that's what makes it good. Many beers can pummel you with their strength [Starkheit] or kill your will to drink more. Heavier beers are I imagine not so very enjoyable in such arid and dry climates as Mexico or Arizona, etc. Thus we see how a beer like Tecate or its close competitor Pacifico Clara has its place in the world - especially in certain parts of the world. I had this beer with Mexican food in Hawaii and found it watery and thin, without too much taste or a palate, and yet, I liked it. I really did. Definitely better than Sol (bleh on that one).

Not a bad Mexican beer at all. Refreshing on a hot day. Poured a clear golden color, aroma was subtle. Tastes like a lighter lager ... nothing special, but good nonetheless.

I must admit that I buy this on occasion because it comes in a pop-top quart bottle that I like to use for my homebrew (bigger bottles = less time spent bottling)... Anyway... It's yellow--very yellow. Served cold as it should be there's very little in the way of taste or aroma--just some grassy overtones and a slight metallic twinge. At higher temps that grainy cheap-ass bear flavor comes out with a force but it's still has a cleaner palate than most. Better than Corona, which ain't sayin' much.
