I mean its really hard to tell this apart from corona or sol except it has a unique bottle and this has a little more flavor than corona and a little less than sol.

A very light beer with little flavor or aroma. I had this with a slice of lime, while eating spicy Mexican food. It was thirst-quenching, and helped put out the fire, but not much beyond that. A typical Mexican beer.....best enjoyed very cold with lime or lemon.

Can cold, a little darker in color than I expected, plenty of corn, and boring malts, no hops to speak of, blah, blah, blah.

Bottle. Not much going on here. Pours light golden with very little head. Had salty flavor with bland finish. Maybe better than corona?

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2013 Bright gold color with diminishing fluffy white head and light lacing. Aroma and flavor are weak with minimal hops and a light malt finish. Clean tasting overall

Modelo Especial is "refridgerator beer" of the Barcelo Premium resort in the Mayan Riviera, Mexico. I drank plenty of cans of Modelo throughtout my stay. Apple jucie appearance, salty flavor, an overall good hot weather, take me down the beach beer.

Pale gold. very fizzy. Quite a strong toasty aroma. Taste has citric notes and some smokiness. A bland finish. Not that bad.

Bottle. Pour is faint golden, almost clear yellow. Aroma is hard to pick up, but what I got was malt. Body is fuller than expected, and taste was pretty faint.

This beer tasted like rubber. Not very pleasant. Gave 4 out of the six pack away so I didn’t have to throw it away.
