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.

Not a lot of new ground covered with this one, but I do like to grab one when it is hot as hell out, or if I am eating spicy Mexican food. It could be nostagia or maybe I just like the sweet malty taste while eating hot food... I think it is better than Corona but not Sol

Pours a golden yellow. Aroma of corn, grains and some hops with a hoppy flavor and a bit of sweetness detectable on the finish.

Pours a medium golden yellow color. Aromas of hops, grains, and a touch of something fruity. Flavor has a nice hop action going for it, with a cheerios like taste.

Modelo is Mexican for Miller I think. Truly not a good beer. Perhaps with lime and salsa it may be tolerable.

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 14, 2005
drinkable for a mexican lager. Still has the same off flavor found in all modelo beers, but with a better aroma and even taste of hops. Smoother. The lime also actually adds to the flavor, instead of covering it up.

harrisoni (16849) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2005
325ml bottle from Wetherspoons. Golden with thin white head, bit of citric hop, some biscuity malt. Bit thin. Quite good inmouth though but too carbonated. Some citric hop on finish. Better than most golden lagers due to the fact that it makes it into the 2s

Well its a mexican beer. That means its never too good. and this is holds true as well. Blah Blah Blah. Only good thing about this is that it has more alcohol than most other Blah beers.

Light gold with a white head. There is litte to no aroma, maybe some skunk. Taste is sweet and watery. No body, no taste, no quality.

Essentially the budweiser of mexico. It is not skunky, but it doesn’t have any flavor except for the corn. It is decent to drink as long as you don’t compare it to Dogfish Head.

shrubber85 (10244) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 14, 2005
Bottle. Sour malt aroma with noted skunkiness. Golden yellow with small head. Mild sour malt flavor with a slight sweet finish. Another blah Lager from Grupo Modelo - at least it doesn’t have as much of Corona’s skunkiness.
