UPDATED: JUN 12, 2008 Bottle and can. The secret to Tecate (or basically any Mexican beer) is to only buy it in Mexico - much better in Mexico - I don’t know what the importer do - most likely they keep it in hot warehouses for months at a time In Mexico (which is what my rating is based on), it has a decent malt aroma with smooth flavor and not much bitterness - really not much different than US macros. In the states, sour malt aroma (not nearly as skunky as Corona though). Light malt flavor with high carbonation. The increased availability of Mexican beers has really helped the quality, for what its worth. Add the lime to hide that this is just a typical cheap pale lager.

This tastes like cheap beer...este cervaza tiene sabor de mierda...ce biere goute comme merde...wow, I can bitch about this beer in three languages...unfortunately that is the most interesting thing I have discovered after drinking this beer... RedEft (155) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - AUG 3, 2004
I drank a few of these as a kid and remembered thinking it was disgusting. Tried it again recently and it is a below average pale lager, but not worthy of the abuse it gets here. Yeah, it’s pale yellow (like a pale lager, go figure...) and watery, but judged as a pale lager, it’s not at all dismal. I’ll drink it if it’s handed to me for sure. bierchik (95) - lakewood, California, USA - JUL 30, 2004

Very light, almost watery beer, I didn’t enjoy this at all, had it in a can. Not a good beer.

As I’m sipping this at a fiesta of sorts being held by my parents, a hunched over mumbling chariciture of Hunter S. Thompson leans into me, muttering something about his days spent wasted and drugged in the Mexican sun, the old hippy then proceeded to shave off a thin slice of lime and insisted that I place it in the neck of my bottle, not wanting to anger the elderly space cadet, and knowing that no piece of fruit was capable of ruining this tasteless Mexican schwill, I relented, and I will say that the green wedge added a new dimension to this otherwise tasteless brew.

I would actually give this beer more credit than most other mexican beers I’ve had... it went well with spicy food and hot/humid weather Cartoonkhaki (1341) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2004

A yellow beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with notes of malt as well as hops. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of corn and the body is thin. A boring beer. jgentgesdo (694) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 5, 2004
Can to pilsner glass. Pours medium yellow with diminishing head, poor lacing. Astringent notes plus some wheat to the nose. Heavier body than many pale lagers, has a reasonably nice aftertaste.
