2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crisp with a slight bitterness and a tad heavier than the other pale lager imports it might compete with. Overall more flavorful than a typical Mexican macro lager. Modelo Especial is my preferred Mexican lager in the US, only because Indio and Victoria can’t be had here (at least where I live).

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottles in Tlachichuca, Mexico. Fairly typical light Mexican lager. Soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Bready, one-dimensional matls. Had an odd lactic-like sourness. Mild corn-like sweetness. Mild bitterness. Drinkable, when fresh, but unexciting.

(12oz bottle, from Swalden28) Pours an amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma of hot garbage, metal, and apple. Flavor of cardboard, apple, and corn. Just plain nasty…

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
( 12oz bottle no thanks to swalden28, wow you got that twice in one night Stephen!) This bottle is slightly different than the one in the picture. The newer bottles read in all caps NO RETORNABLE. I cleverly deciphered this cryptic message shortly after smelling and ingesting this awful "beverage". Absolutely no retailer, wholesaler, and I think even FEMSA knows now they don’t want this shit back. It’s that bad. Pours clear amber with a head that runs away like a soda’s might. Nose of hairspray, dirty/old underwear. Taste of water, dirty, and kind of grainy. Watery finish.

Bottle......provided by Swalden28. Clear brown orange color. Smells of hot honey and grain. Taste is dirty. Sort of sweet but some sort of unpleasantness also. It has an old tea flavor.
