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.

Bottle. Weak amber colour with a short white head. Aroma is a little bit sweet, hoppy slightly malty. Flavour is rather thin, some caramel malt, bit hoppy. Slightly bitter finish.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2012 Just a plain old refreshing beer. Best in the summer. After tasting most of the Mexican imports this one wins out in blind tasting. I like this way better than corona. Little bottle with foil top also makes it fun and brings it up a notch.

12oz Can. They say cans are making a comeback with the advent of new technologies. What the hack, I’ll give it a shot. And really not much different than its clear glass counterpart. Filtered pale golden Mexican lager. Cereal grainy aroma. Similar taste. In a relative scale, one of my favorite Mexicans. But hey, I really dig on the cuisine so you gotta be authentic. Spicy food and the beach. A time and place for everything!

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.

(bottle)Tasted a lot like corona to me. Golden appearance. No desire to drink it again.

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.
