I had one of these in a bottle and thought, it’s not too bad. I was in a small grocery store with a minimal selection and saw Tecate in the can and thought, that will work. Everyone of them has tasted like the metal can. I’ll never buy it in the can again. Might have even turned me away from Tecate all together.

"not bad for swill...kinda pale and kinda light, but ever so slightly drinkable...ice cold and in a can on a hot summer day only...but that makes it better than some!"

My least favorite mexican beer so far, something is off on this beer and cannot quite pin it. The taste is light and crisp, very watery and decent cold but something on the after taste reminds me of sour tomato sauce when I am not paying attention. when I focus on the after taste it is not noticeable.

It’s a different cheap beer. Love that they come in Tallboys. Would drink this over Corona any day.

330 kl bottle pours golden with white head that fades. Not much aroma. Easy drinking summer beer for a hot afternoon

Pours clear gold with a moderate white head slight lacing. Aroma of wet bread and sweet citrus. Weak flavor slightly sweet and salty. Not bad for what it is. Makes a decent beer for micheladas. I don't feel bad adding lime to this.

Alengrin (2087) - BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2014
Popular Mexican standard lager (something I don’t put much trust in anymore after Corona Extra and the like) with pale golden colour and grainy, sweetish, corn character, otherwise very neutral, almost no hops - let alone hop bitterness - in the finish, watery, very simple and monotonous, with relatively sharp carbonation. My presentiment proved correct.

Bendrixian (1132) - Canadiana, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2014
Clear golden brew with a pilsner aroma and some sweet hay like notes. Light brew with some sweetness and a certain leathery note but fast finish and forgetful profile. Although not the worst brew out there it is still nothing to write home about.

Golden pour with minimal white head that disappears in no time. The nose has some phenols and grain that give off a light whisky vibe and there’s a little apple juice along for the ride. The phenols subside mostly in the mouth but the grain and apple juice stay. There’s a light sweetness here and a very nondescript finish. The carbonation is a touch spiky. I’ve had worse.
