Not that good of a beer. I've had better beers from Mexico (not that many to choose from) perhaps I'm a little too hard on this beer, but it needs to be said. This beer is like Budweiser, little flavor and little attraction. This beer should be sent to the depths of beer Hades.

Golden not much flavor. Blight Carmel. Light candy and honey flavors. Carbonation is part of flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Home (20151225): clear 35.5 cl bottle. Clear yellow beer with a thin white head. Smell is some sweetness/fruitiness with a somewhat malty, biscuit-like finish. Taste is neutral whit a light malty character. Missing the hop bitter in the taste. So not special.

Con toques a caramelo pero sin empalagar, en general muy equilibrada y muy fácil de beber.

A ’decent’ offering from Mexico.The usual corn and grain flavored beer but modelo is a far better buy than corona for both taste and price. Lime is useful but not required.

The beer looks nothing special. It is a little like corona. The color is a darker golden yellow. The beer is crystal clear and a few little bubbles are rising to the top. A little layer of extremely rough foam forms on top of the beer after pouring, but is disappears extremely fast and not a single bit of foam is left. All in all, the looks aren’t really special. The smell is nice. It is fresh and has a little herbal aroma in it. I might smell some hops. The smell is a little bitter, which is nice. There isn’t much else in the smell. The taste is slightly less than the taste. The bitternes has an unpleasant thing about it. It is a little bready. The taste also has a fresh hoppy undertone, which is nice. The beer is not bad, not very special, just beer.
