COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

bottle from speciaalbierpakket. only good thing to say about it is that it’s a cool bottle. worse beer, corn, water, metallic mouthfeel, chemical, malts,

ContemplateBeer (1493) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Can from Ali. Aroma: Sweet cornbread made with cream corn; light grassy perfume. Appearance: Light, still gold with a ring of white head; expected a little more fizzy here. Flavor: Matches the nose with a puff of grass toward the finish; yeah, maybe a little sweet especially up front. Palate: Light body, slick texture, flat carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Just alright, but respectable when compared to other mass market pale lagers. Still doesn’t trump my Mexican axe Carta Blanca.

Not offensive but not worthwhile either, watery highly carbonated Mexican lager.

Can’t say I was surprised, but Modelo failed to make sweet love to my palate. Instead, this was the kind of cheap lay that you’d rather forget about. Alright, that was a little dramatic. Point is, this beer is mostly unoffensive if you drink it cold out of the fridge; it becomes increasingly shittier after that. Its darker counterpart isn’t much to talk about, but it seems like a damn masterpiece when compared to this stuff.

Mr_Pink_152 (506) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2014
355ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Golden colour, no head and high carbonation. Aroma and taste of maltiness. Slight bitter finish like a Pilsener. On the whole a good beer

Are you looking for cheap beer that is yellow and fizzy? This is your beer. Of every can that I opened, 100% were yellow, and all of them were likewise fizzy.
