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.

Bottle@chiquitos, wednesfield. Orange yellow beer with no head and moderate carbonation. Aroma of sweetcorn and some floral notes. Taste is same with a touch of hop bitterness. Overall quite crap really.

At a resort in Mexico. Drinkable but unexciting lager. Hay aroma, grassy taste, dry finish.

"better than corona, but that’s not exactly high praise. tastes of cereal and corn...a little malt. pretty boring, and can be a little skunky. clear glass sucks...why is it still used?"

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice light honey Amber pour with no head. Nose is a light grain bill, corn and simple crackery malts. Some honey and floral notes. Light drinkable body with just a hint of a bite on the end. Average carb. Taste is a doughy malt profile with some light grains (corn and cereal grains) some light honey and floral notes. Simple drinkable lager

I had this at Global Brew. Pours yellow with a white head. Taste corn, grassy. I thought this was not good. I would not drink this again.

Draft at the Villages, 2 for 1 happy hour! Pale yellow with I finger white head. Not much aroma, mild carbonation. Clean mild flavor but cold and refreshing on a warm Florida evening...

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear amber with a decent white head. Muted aroma. Flavor brings a little character at least. Light, watery and very easy to drink. Better balance than most macro pales. Certainly stands above the bottom tier.
