This was alright. The darker was far superior. It did not have that great aftertaste that the dark one has. This wasn’t bad though.

From a can - Pours a golden pilsner with a slight, sweet malty aroma. This beer has nothing really pro or con about it, but at least it’s better than Budweiser!

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a light transparent gold with a very small fast falling white head. This brew was very skunked with a light malt nose and almost no hops. I really can’t say I like this brew at all, very funky nasty taste, kinda a grainy dirty light malt taste, a bit fruity, but foul from the skunkiness.

Better than than their stable mate Corona (LIME?!) but nowhere near Negra Modelo. This is what the big 3 in the US could be if they tried even a little bit. Average flavor and balance. Nothing memorable.

Disappointing overall considering I liked the Negra. the bottle was the best ofthis. Very plain is all I can say to describe it.

At a resort in Cancun all they had was this or Corona. Better than Corona, had it here in the states, not as good as I remembered, probably because I only drank one versus who knows how many.

Very unimpressive. No aroma and no flavor. Glad I only bought a single b/c at $8.30 a sixer this is severely overpriced. Best thing I can say for this one is "it’s cold & refreshing".

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear golden/amber body topped by medium off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, grain, some bread. Taste is medium sweet, grain, some bread, light caramel. As usual for Mexican beers, no bitterness. Light-medium body. All told, with the qualifier that Modelo is a mainstream Mexican beer, not bad.

Fairly hazy golden hue, moderate head formation. Grainy, malt aroma. All malt palate, sweet, grainy, mildly bitter finish. Swill but drinkable.

Bottle, Can. The first time that I tried this was at a restaurant called "La Fogata" (the campfire) in Kitty Hawk or the Outer banks of North Carolina. I asked the obviously hispanic waiter what beer he would drink and he brought me an ice cold Modelo Especial that he proceeded to squeeze a fresh lime onto the top of before I opened. I cracked that baby open and he said "I sure wish it was quitting time.. that first drink is the best". He was right. Not a lot of new ground covered with this one, but I do like to grab one when it is hot as hell out, or if I am eating spicy Mexican food. It could be nostagia or maybe I just like the sweet malty taste while eating hot food...
