2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a tan yellow, mith more tint than i expected. Carbonated fizzy head. Dies quickly. Crisp taste. The alcohol makes up for the lack of flavor in the beer. It ends up tasting like harsh hops. Overall not as bad as i expected, but way too pricey at $16 for a 12 pack

Nice Mexican beer. Squeez a little lime...There ya go! Great in the summertime by the pool or at the lake! My favorite Mexican beer next to Tocate.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Can from Beerhandy, thanks Chris! Modelo Especial pours a deep shade of yellow, almost golden. Head is short lived, and fizzy white, with tiny bubbles. Aroma is strong fusel oils and corn with boiled cabbage. Tastes of stale corn water, gasoline/oils/chemicals. Pretty boozey for only 6%. Close to to awful, and in the same category as a lot of Steelback products. Thanks Chris!

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. can. No freshness date seen.
Straw yellow color, no head to speak of. Aromas are of corn, malts, and earthy hops. Flavors are of corn, sweet malts, some bitterness from the hops. Medium mouthfeel, decent body.
Nothing to write home about, but not as bad as it’s been rated.

Bottled. Not the worst pale lager I’ve tried, but not especially great. One of the few things that I appreciated was that it didn’t smell stongly of corn and rice. Sure it was there, but not the bulk of the aroma. As a matter of fact, I have a hard time describing this beer in terms of good things. It’s much easier to describe it in terms of "things that weren’t awful."

(bottle) pale lager gold with small, rapidly fading white head. A whiff of citrus in the aroma. Body is light with some hops in the finish.

24 oz can. Pale golden beer, thin white head. Aroma is quite soapy, thin pale malt. Slightly sweet, corny aroma. Flavour is bland at best, soapy and slightly oily tasting. Meh.

Nothing especial about this one. Poured a clear golden color with a small head that disappeared as quickly as it appeared. Very non-memorable in flavor and taste, although I do remember that I didn’t like it all that much.

All in all, a typical Mexican brew. Slightly better than Corona in my estimation, the pale golden pilsner has only the mildest hppy notes mingled with the faintest citrus hints. A bit of malt, but not too much of anything going on. Not terribly great, but not offensive. A decent sipping beer.
