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.

usually i love to trash this type beer, but i am in a good mood now. so, i’d say that this is smooth and easy drinking.

Pours clear golden with thin head and racing bubbles. Nose is very plain and smells faintly of corn and fuggles. The flavor has small initial bitterness that fades into mildly bitter faint maltiness. Thin metallic aftertaste. Pretty good pale lager.

Pretty good for a mexican beer. I’d have it again instead of a Corona. Try it you might like it, but don’t forget the lime.

Better than Corona, but is that saying much? It doesn’t have a real skunky after-taste, but perhaps because it doesn’t have much taste.

Had on the riverwalk...Has nice bitters to it, i was actually quite surprised to taste it, but the bitters were good, decent mouthfeel too, not that bad of a swiller!!

There is definitely something distinct about Mexican beers. They have a "lime-nes" to each and every one of them. Modelo Especialo is an example. It went great with a burrito but my guess is it would not work with a football game.

Skunky corn cheap lager aroma. Smells of pay day bars and cheap hookers. No pleasure in this one, just the flavor of discontent.

This is your classic Mexi schwag vienna lager style of brew. Nothing special but goes well with chips, salsa and Carne Asada. Negra is better but this one is a better ingredient in my wife’s favorite Margarita recipe. This is strictly an ambiance beer...something that will only accompany Mexican food or drink...Salud!

TheEnemy (562) - Chicago, USA - SEP 6, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2005 Thin, fizzy, grain-mash aroma and flavor. Standard mass-brew sourness. As with most Mexican lagers, one tiny step above American mass-brews but still with few redeeming qualities. I had higher hopes for this one figuring it would be on the same plane as the thoroughly enjoyable Negra Modelo. No such luck -- Corona with a different label.

Bottle. Pours gold with a frothy white head and some lined spotty lacing. Sour malt (hay, straw, meal) and corn yeast (sweat) aromas. Sweet yeast and sour malt flavors of roasted corn. Light bodied.
