2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Modelo Especial pours a pale golden with a bit more head than other imported cervezas with light-moderate carbonation. There is definitely more of a malt characteristic than Corona, which makes its flavor slightly more complex but much less refreshing. In fact, this beer is pretty devoid of anything noticeable in terms of hops, except for what is standard in any lower end lager. Furthermore, the aroma is very faint, a bit sweet, and from my experience both the scent and flavor are adversely effected by the clear glass bottle, as they can be a bit on the skunky side; cans are the way to go with this one. It’s decent enough, but like many others in its genre, just not worth the import price tag.

This is a remarkable brew, as it doesn’t even taste or smell like beer. The stuff just fizzes away before you know it. Really not worth you while, not even ice cold.

Dark yellow color. No Head. A bit more taste than Corona Extra of Sol. Light beer which is best to drink on a hot summer day.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12 oz chilled can into a glass mug. Totally clear, yellow, well carbonated, support fizzy head. Nose is not much. A little sweet and a little bready. Body is thin and watery, a little crisp. Taste is bland. A hint of bitterness, a whisper of malt. Not actively unpleasant, bit morning worth drinking.

It is not in line with European lagers in general. But it has good malt fill, sensible bitter hopping and fine thirst-quenching properties. Carbonation is sufficiently soft and able to keep it vibrant and lively while it is easy to drink. Clear European style in its expression, but still somewhat anonymous among the lagers we usually will find below our European skies. Should I some day end up in a lounge chair on the beach in Acapulco, so it is this lager I will choose!

Amarillo pálido con transparencia, espuma nula, marcado el maíz como adjunto, incluso el aroma a jarabe de maíz indunda, lúpulo nulo. El balance es a malta maltoso y ligero amargor de lúpulo en boca, carbonatación moderada, cuerpo de moderado a medio y final maltoso dulce.

Decent Mexican import. Beats corona by a wide margin. No line needed here and relatively smooth
