2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pretty uninteresting, typical Mexican lager. Just a hint of malt, floral hops, almost no bitterness. I would certainly drink this before drinking the water, but the mouthfeel was a lot lie drinking the water.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This light bronze colored lager has many of the attributes that are typical of its peers. I didn’t smell or tasted any of the adjuncts used in some of those macros. The aroma was faint, yet pure. The flavor was of malt, not rice or corn, and the finish was smooth. Not a world-class beer, but a cut above the swill that can get better ratings.

Like Corona in a can, only with added water. The aroma in the can might be stronger prior to opening, but I’m not sure. Except for one or two beers this has to be my all time favorite. Ahem.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Not really a beer to brag about. Yet another watery flaovrless mexican brew. What I can’t beleive is that they make a modelo light, I thought expecial meant light from tasting. On the brighter side it has a pretty nifty looking bottle.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pale copper/bronze color, fizzy quickly dispersing head. The aroma has bright skunk & adjuncts, some malt is there but seems distant. Almost like you’re in the middle of a storm but you can see sunshine on the horizon. The flavor is very....mexican. Typical skunked mexican lager, not a good one at that. Finishes like sour starburst. I’m glad I only had one bottle of this and not a six pack of cans. This would gain a few points if it were colder, with a lime, and in a hot environment, but that owuld be subjective tasting.

Nothing "especial" about this watered down swill. Modelo (Corona) seems to corner the market on crappy beer.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Has a standard macro-brew style texture and taste. However, I find this to have a bit more honey sweetness and less corn/rice by product flavor. Out of the bottle which may eliminate the "metallic" flavor. No hops, and a very watery texture, but I still don't see why this gets so panned. It's not great, not even that good, not even that good for its style but there are much, MUCH worse beers than this. This hits the mark: unnoticable and easy to drink. Good? No. Offensive? No.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Note that this beer is rather warm and I am drinking it straight out of the can. First swallow has a hoppy freshness. Nothing too Adjuncty to get in the way of the Malt and the Hops Albiet not in a good IPA way but in a Macro Swill way. The first one went down very well and in my next one I will have it from a Tumbler so as to give it a full Rating. I would definitely have this beer over any of the common beers in most restaurants specifically Mexican Restaurants. Pours a Light Amber Colour with decent head, but dissipates quickly. Phenolic fragrance which may be attributed to its supposed 6% ABV. Flavor is close to what I described above. Try the ME from South of the Border. You can't go wrong. Adios!

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottled: Well this is a BAD BAD beer. Peeyellow coloured. Almost no head, but it seems to be white. Aroma is metallic and chemical. Flavour is very watery and just to get through this beer I added some lemon. Made the beer better!!!!.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Not so bad. This is one of the sweetest pilsners that you will find. The sweet flavor provides a sense of more body here than there probably is. Effervescent gold in color. Dangerous photosensitive clear bottle.
