Tecate Alta Review: Properties and Ingredients of the Mexican Beer

Is being sued for allegedly misleading customers with their Mexican beer Tecate. Miguel Schelmetty, a customer from New York has now filed a lawsuit because he feels betrayed about the origin of the beer. While believing, he was drinking a Mexican beer, Tecate is actually html easy to learn brewed in the Netherlands. But the Tecate brewery in Tecate, Mexico is a very real thing—it employs more than 2,200 people—and it continues to make very real Tecate beer. Whether or not that’s what Cervezas Mexicanas is currently importing is another question.

Dos XX Ambar—This “Vienna style lager” is another restaurant staple in the U.S. It has a more intense flavor than the norm and is a refreshing change from the sea of lighter beers, going well with hearty food. It has slightly more alcohol than most, at 4.7%. When flavors are present, they are subtle. It is described as crisp and dry, but these adjectives more accurately describe the beer’s carbonation and attenuation than the flavor. When taste does come through, it will likely be a mild graininess from the malt, possibly a sweetness from the corn, and very little bitterness and hop flavor.

Originally brewed by a local company, Tecate was acquired by Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma in 1955. Tecate is sold in both distinctive red and blue aluminium cans and in twist-top bottles. Tecate Light was launched in 1992 by Héctor Emilio Ayala, who was the project manager. It is a light and refreshing beer to the palate due to the right mix of malts and hops in the formula. On a Havana terrace, two glasses of cold and refreshing lager beer on a table, waiting to be savored. Victoria—This is a popular choice for those who want to drink a couple beers while keeping a clear head, as its only 4% alcohol.

Tecate Original is a full-bodied lager with a refreshing crisp malt flavor and a pleasant aftertaste—the way a Mexican cerveza should be. Brewed with bottom-fermenting yeast with a clean and soft fermentation profile. Its flavor has light notes of malts and hops. This is a refreshing, thirst-quenching beer. Considering Tecate Alta’s alcohol content and low calories, the beer is one of the lightest American-style Mexican beers you can find today.

While its history speaks for itself, many don’t know what kind of beer is Tecate. Corona—One of the five best-selling beers in the world, but it usually tastes better in Mexico, where the bottles don’t have so much time in transit and on shelves. (Sunlight coming through clear bottles is never a good thing for beer.) This is the typical “drink all afternoon” beer, working well on its own or with a plate of tacos.

Low concentrations of yeast characteristics like DMS, acetaldehyde, or fruitiness are present. It is best to serve the beer at a low temperature to eliminate any lingering diacetyl. I am shocked that I have never reviewed Tecate. I have had both it and the light version many times. Overall, It is not terrible, but not great either. Tecate sells for “a premium” at around $11.99 for a 12-pack — which is “higher than the price of the product if it were represented in a non-misleading way,” the suit alleges.

This positively influences its drinkability, meaning you can drink multiple cans without adverse physical effects. As with other American lagers, the best temperature to serve Tecate bottles is 50F. The Microbrew scene has improved drastically since I wrote the first version of this article in 2009. You can now find a staggering variety of pale ales, stouts, wheat beers, and more obscure offerings throughout the country, though rarely in a convenience store or supermarket. You have to seek them out at bars and restaurants with taste or at a specialty beer store.

Once in the canning facility, 4,000 cans per minute can be processed. The cans themselves are manufactured by a subsidiary company, Ensenada’s Fabrica Famosa, and shipped 70 miles to Tecate. Every effort is made to recycle (cardboard boxes, etc.) or reuse materials generated by the company. Tecate is sold in both distinctive red aluminium cans and in twist-top bottles. Tecate Light was launched in 1992 by Ing. Hector Emilio Ayala, who was the project manager.
