Brewsday Tuesday: Tecate

May 15, 2012

Winn Dixie had a Cinco de Mayo mix pack on sale and I took the bait.  It included three bottles of four kinds of beer.  Since I never had tried Tecate, I figured I would give it a whirl.  It was not a pleasant experience.

Name: Tecate

Brewed by: Cervecria Cuauhtemoc Moctezuma, S.A. de C.V.

Location: Monterrey, Mexico

Style/ABV: American Adjunct Lager / 4.5%

Appearance: Pours a straw yellow with a weak one finger bright white head that quickly disappears.  No lacing is present.

Smell: Corn and some biscuit malts present with some  hay  and rice aromas.

Taste: The rice and corn flavors dominate.  There is a hint of hopiness but barely.

Mouthfeel: Thin and watery with high carbonation.

Overall: This is Mexico’s version of Budweiser.  It is thoroughly underwhelming, and I am sad I have to drink two more of these.

Final Grade: D
