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.

Its amazing they have managed to make a corona that tastes of even less, lime added to the bottle in the same way, however nice bottle so appearance points.

Light orange-yellow in color with a weak head. Aroma is alright. The flavor is that of an average beer, and the palate rests a little sweet on the tongue. Nothing special here, but a better choice than corona.

Can. Seems like I’ve always been offered these in cans.Pulled from an ice-chest with a little lime squeezed on the can top to run in through the sides of your mouth while you’re suckin’ down jalapenos and stuffin’ your face with steamy hot tamales. It’s drinkable and better than Corona.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2005
pours a pale yellow with a thin white head, aroma of corn and citrus, tastes hoppy with some sweet malts and a bitter finish, not a great body, but not a bad beer, id say its drinkable.

Pours a clear yellow with thin white head, mostly diminishing. Aroma of corn and dms. Not bad, drinkable. And it is better than Corona, although they’re pretty similar coming from the same producer. Slightly bitter finish.

I had this a year ago. All I remember is that it’s a crappy pale lager. Better than Corona, but that says a lot huh?

Has the amber color that corona lacks. Not much head, which is neither subsatntial or flavorful. Citrus aroma, hoppy, and slight corn. Salinous palate, which is good. Smooth and not overly effervecent. Beer itself if very flavorful and swallows as easy as a cider. Faintly metallic, as is Corona and Modelo Especial. Very decent beer, great with lime or not. Don’t let it get too warm.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2005
(Bottle 32,5 cl) Beautiful amber colour, rather limited head. Fairly full-bodied with a lovely, full malt sweetness. Discreet bitterness. Not exactly a great lager but has a lot more character than the typical Mexican macro-brew. 020505

Bottle from Peace St. Market, Raleigh. Gold pour, with some hops, lemon, and indeed lime in the aroma. Tastes hopcity, with some sourness in the finish.
