Pours a straw color with plenty of carbonation. The aroma is a light malt and hops, some adjuncts and sometime else a little off. Taste is similar with toasty malt and some hops in the finish.

Bottle at a Mexican restarant in Tokyo. It is what is. Clear golden color with slight white head. Fizzy carbonation and lightly refreshing on the palate. Tastes of corn and a hint of pear. Goes well with Mexican and a better light lager than most.

Exactly as I expected out of a "pale lager" handed to me from a non beer drinkers fridge because someone brought it to a party, left it and been trying to get rid of it since. May be the drink for a blistering hot day or tailgate drinking... But otherwise no thanks

I love reading other reviews of light lagers like this. "Piss color." Yes, well, look at what kind of beer this is and understand that "pale yellow" is pretty much what it is SUPPOSED TO BE. If you’re disappointed that it’s not opaque, then stop drinking light lagers! "Not much flavor." Again, if you’re upset that there’s no raging hop bite, outrageous Cascade aroma, and overwhelming malt character, etc., then stop drinking this style! Or at least stop rating styles that you hate, and just keep re-rating Heady Topper and Dork Lard. Jesus! It’s like watching a comedy, and complaining that it wasn’t serious enough. "The film Beer Fest just didn’t have the gravity of drama, tense situations, and emotional turns of plot that I look for in a serious drama." ....because it’s a COMEDY. Tecate is a LIGHT LAGER. And it’s a seriously good LIGHT LAGER, way better than Bud, Miller, Coors, LaBatt. You don’t have to like the style, but please stop criticizing the pot and kettle for being black.

Draft pour. Pours a light see through gold color. Not a whole lot to talk about here. This one does have noticeable flavor though, which was a suprise to me. Very light hop hints with a crisp finish. Not as bad as I expected, but probably won’t get this again if I’m paying for it. Could be a whole lot worse.

Pours a clear straw topped by almost no head as it quickly fades to nothing. Through the glass you see coarse carbonation and no lacing, obviously. The nose is weakcand has a mild grainy aspect with a touch of grass. The taste delivers the same elements with a medium crisp and very light body. The finish can develop a certain vegetable feature overtime as the brew warms. Still a refreshing simple beer. Cheers!

Clear gold and nearly no head. Minimal grain aroma. Flavor is clean but completely lacking anything at all. Easy going and a good hot weather thirst quencher but no redeeming qualities in the taste.

Tall boy can in Seattle. A bit denser yellow body, creamy white head. Sweet adjunct aroma lager. Empty smooth body, metallic dry aftertaste. Really could be much worse.

Pours piss colored from a bottle. Tastes thin, corny. Not a good beer at all.

Fairly flavorless and thin brew here. Nothing else I could really say, at least I didn’t taste anything off here.
