    Pros: Better than some
    Cons: Worse than many

    Summary: I've just returned from the desert region of Andalucia, in Spain. What? You didn't know there was a desert there? Of course there is. It's called The Great Quality Beer Desert and I was marooned smack dab in the middle of it for two weeks. Let ... read more

    Pros: Not harsh, pourable, inexpensive ...
    Cons: Doesn't have a full body if you really like that sort of thing...

  • Tecate es mi Cerveza de la Casa

    Mar 16, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good flavor, inexpensive
    Cons: Lacks complexity

    Summary: Tecate is a fine, middle of the road lager from Mexico. A great beer? I wouldn't go that far, but then it isn't priced like one. Tecate averages around $5 a six pack in the Los Angeles area, and can frequently be found on sale for less than that. As ... read more

  • A Hard Lesson in a 12 Oz. Aluminum Can

    Jan 19, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Magnificent companion to BBQ'd carne asada and a life lesson.
    Cons: The lessons of life can be really damn hard.

    Summary: The traffic moving north along the 405 through the valley toward Valencia was lighter than normal for a Saturday morning, meaning that we would arrive at Oso's a bit earlier than expected. That would be fine, as in practical terms it meant we would have ... read more

    Pros: Light inoffensive everyday lager
    Cons: Light inoffensive everyday lager

    Summary: I've often said that for every beer, there is an occasion, but to a lot of folks, the right occasion for ordinary, everyday, non-pretensious beers is...well...every day. That's the kind of niche that beers like Tecate fit into. ... read more

    May 10, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Only nice thing I can say is that the can is unique. Enough said.
    Cons: Weak flavor. Plus: not enough information is provided by the brewer regarding this brand's production.

    Summary: Tecate Light Premier "Cerveza elaborado con ingredientes naturales de óptimo calidad; malta, cebada y lúpulo." How's your Spanish? Did you catch all that? Even with my limited Spanish skills, I can make out the basic ... read more

    Pros: How green grows thy garden?
    Cons: Bland, bland, bland...YEEECH!

    Summary: Why is a light beer like making love in canoe? Give up? They're both f*cking close to water! Some folks might think that was a joke. People who love beer as much as I do will recognize it as one of life's fundamental truths. While ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light, refreshing, and crisp
    Cons: Only acceptable in the can

    Summary: As an avid beer-drinker, I have acquired the habit of only drinking certain beers during certain seasons. While some beers are truly ideal for year-round consumption (Bass comes to mind), others must be strictly confined to a particular season. Such is ... read more
