Modelo Especial, a pilsener type beer, was introduced to the market in 1966. Today it is sold in glass bottles as well as cans, which are having an increasing demand due to consumer preferences, making Modelo Especial the leader in the can segment in Mexico.

Straw yellow beer with a fast-fading head. Aroma of light malts, some floral hops, and a skunk or two. Flavor of overripe lemons and adjuncts with a finish that is both sour and bitter. This is pretty bad stuff. Almost begs a chaser to kill the flavor.

Pretty bad stuff. This would taste a lot better if it was watered down. I think the can I was drinking out of was years old. I will stay away from this devilish beer.

This brew poured a small head of small white bubbles and a transparent wheat yellow colored body. It has a mild hoppy aroma and flavor. Its mouthfeel is smooth initially and has a very small initial bite yet finishes smooth.

Soft Corona in a fatter bottle. Those Mexican brewers are very sneaky....

Braudog (5623) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2003
Dark yellow with very active carbonation and boiling head. Deep malty aroma. Smooth and mellow malt-grain flavors without any of the skunk or funk you'd expect. No lime needed to make this taste like something, this actually tastes like a beer. OK, it's average, but it's way better than you'd think.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - AUG 13, 2003
Gold color with minimum head, faintly skunked but I've had far worse. Light bodied, a little orange/lemon acidity and a nothing at all finish. Other than for the novelty (I guess) of drinking a Mexican beer, I see no reason for this product to exist.

Nothing to wrong with this one, except an almosy complete lack of flavor. The lime was nice...

This is a good alternative to Corona, goes well with Mexican food. Interesting bottle shape too.

Here is a Mexican beer you can enjoy without a lime. Great with food (guess which type), and overall an easy one to drink. Next time (if there is a next time) you crave a Corona or Dos Equis, try one of these instead. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
