Can, every time I’ve ordered it. This is probably not the best beer in the world, but I will choose this over Corona or modelo especial at any central and south american restaurant. A decent beer to pair with food that has a very pronounced and dominant flavor, like anything flavor with chilies and cumin.

I’ve been drinking Tecate for many years now just as a real simple, easy brew and have enjoyed it, especially during the warmer months, with a sea salt grinder and sometimes a quick squish of lime juice. Craft beer, it ain’t. But, for just having a few, it’ll do just fine.

12-ounce bottles in a pilsner glass. Very bland, comparable to a Coors Light in level of flavor.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear and yellow small white head. Aroma of corn and malt. Taste is sweet lot of malts, corn no hops whatsoever; pretty bland no real sustance here. Not sure that it will work even during warm summer days.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Clear straw gold with a thin wispy white head. Aroma of grass/hay. Watery and tastes essentially the same as most other macro lagers. And that’s what I expected. Alcohol delivery system. Reminds me of every beer I ever had at college keggers back in the day.

De la macro FEMSA - Cuauhtémoc-Moctezuma (Heineken México) esta "Tecate" una American Adjunt Lager con un 4.5% ABV, creo esta dentro de las peores cervezas de Heineken México incluso en Ratebeer tiene una calificación de 1/100 en el general y 20/100 en su estilo, vamos a ver si están en lo correcto. En apariencia tiene una corona de espuma delgada, muy cristalina y de nula retención, a los pocos segundos de ser servida desaparece quedando la cerveza sin ningún tipo de protección, el liquido muestra un color paja, sin turbiedad alguna, carbonatación mediana y de cuerpo acuosa. El aroma es mínimo conforme se va calentando se pueden llegar a percibir mas tenuemente los aromas, huele principalmente a algo de malta, dulzor de maíz, una nota ácida, el lúpulo que se haya utilizado es imperceptible. Su sabor es realmente ligero, de inicio mostrando mucho dulzor a maíz, cereal de maíz, pan blanco, una nota ácida algo desagradable y que seguramente no causa astringencia pero al ser muy ligera en la boca de forma general se hace muy evidente, mínimo amargor al final y semi seca.

An overall cheaply made macro brewed Mexican beer. Its the keystone light of Mexican beers. Its used to fill up the ice chest to keep the party going.

When I was living in Mexico, I was avoiding this beer, of course, it is just my opinion. It is a macrobrewery and this beer is a bit malty, few corn and few hop, watery and a bit metalic, average carbonation, really boring.
