COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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...

Bleah... Blah. Not much to it. This is a typical Norte American light beer. Not much head, pale orange color, little aroma, little flavor. Light malts, very light hops, metallic finish.

Bottled. Easy drinking non offensive chugging beer. Better than Corona. Goes good with chili.

RichardGretton (4240) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2004
Pale lager with little head, fairly malty aroma and dryish flavour but generally sweet. Overall better than I was expecting from a Mexican beer.

guzzler67 (1495) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 14, 2004
Dull, gold appearance with nothing going on in the aroma category. Flavor is not much of an improvement. Okay as a palate cleanser if you are eating something spicy. Thin, cardboard-like taste with a short finish.

Ouch. Canned evil used for a rating. It is yellow and fizzy. Head fades quickly. Taste is watery and thin. Aroma is non-contributory. Another sad pale lager.
