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.

Nice golden color with a quickly disappearing white head. Very faint malty aroma with some bitterness. The taste was average with a thin, crisp finish.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2007 Can... AWOL ’07... Clear yellow lager with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. Not much to smell or taste. It’s seltzer water, basically. Near medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish. This is to Corona as Busch is to Budweiser?

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2008 I’m re-rating this because I had a couple in Nashville recently after having two other beers that were far better. The boiled corn taste got to me and I came close to pouring. I would have if not for the fact that it was all the beer I had left. If it had been one of those burnt craft ales I would have.

from the can. sweet and fruity, very adjunct laden. But admirably drinkable. I wouldn’t throw this swill away instantly! Wow, and at a whopping 6%, too!

Canette. 25/03/07 Plage de Mismaloya. Arôme de maïs. Jaune clair, la mousse s’efface très vite. Goût léger de maïs, manque d’amertume, bonne effervescence, très mince, arrière-goût plutôt absent. Bof.

Nice golden pilsener color. Good hopps aroma. One of the better Mexican imports you can get. Good lasting head beats the wateriness of your average south of the border import

Thanks to my friend Dion who brought me one of these to sample. Fresh nose of grains and cereal. Pure pilsener. Pours a clear pale golden. Tall stiff white mostly lasting head, fair lace. Malt toastiness predominates in flavor, quick finish. Light watery body, finish is clean.

Foamy head with golden colored body. Metallic taste. Acceptable with mexican food but not much else.

The typical Mexican beer in color and in head. Yellow with a thin white lacey head. Mouthfeel was alright, since this beer was served ice cold. I probably wouldnt order it again but I would certianly grab a Negra Modelo first.
