UPDATED: JUN 11, 2016 This is very low alcohol content with a refreshing (non) flavor. Nice carbonation. You know what you are getting...

I don’t know how I’ve never rated this before. I really don’t mind it, it’s one of my preferred light Mexican lagers. Easy drinker. I gave this a high rating, sue me.

I drank this beer at some places in Mexico. It is a lager for mass people, for fun or to drink at regular prices or after a long walk at the market when you are thirsty. The color is yellow and clear, normal carbonation, thin and white foam, grainy, really watery, few hop, drinkable.

Pours a gold pee color. Medium foam head when poured into a pint glass. Smell is typical of a macro brewed beer. Taste is ok similar to corona, after all its made by the same company. Its more of taco bar beer.

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.
