Draft. Pours clear gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like musky malt, light citrus, corn. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like corn, musky malt, and light citrus.

Had many times but never rated. Golden, meager head. Very faint grainy aroma. Taste is smooth and not skunky like some Mexican brews. It's a light lager, not much else to say but probably one of the better Mexican lagers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

At first i liked Negra Modelo a littke better but now I actually prefer this one. Some paper and mash malt. Fibish is crisp enough. Bottle at the Coyoacana.

Can at Zoetry Riviera Maya. Nose typical light lager. Taste, do I really need to say? Not horrible for sitting on the deck reading and staring at the ocean.

At a newly minted Mexican restaurant in Milwaukee, I was served a few tappers of Modelo. They fit the chile rellenos, beans, rice and chips perfectly.

dlihcsnatas (587) - Texas, USA - APR 10, 2016
Mexican Pee color with the smell of a cheap grainy lager. Taste is cheap and grainy as well. Thin watery sub par lager. Nope not going to go for this one again.

Bottle Nothing special, pales in comparison with much better brews ( pun intended). A step above Miller Lite, but not too much. In a storm, the port you would approach (but otherwise not). Not a road I will travel again gladly.

Grumbo (1173) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2016
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pale gold in colour with a white head. Aroma is a touch malty, with floral and grain notes. Medium sweetness, light bitterness. Light body. OK.

swillguzzler99 (186) - Peoria, Arizona, USA - FEB 16, 2016
From a 24 oz can. Pours a dark straw with nice carbonation and a lingering head. Virtually no nose. Slight bitter taste, no real discernible flavors. Finishes smooth. Better than water or Bud, but definitely not a Belgian quad! Good for a hot AZ summer day.
