1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from 12 oz. bottle into glass mug. Pours a medium clear sparkling yellow color with a very small white fizzy head with minimal lacing that dissipates quickly. Smells of faint grain/hay, with slight citrus & grass odor. Initial flavor is very light cereal with a slight acidic taste, with a short sour/bitter finish. Body is very light with a watery texture and soft carbonation that diminishes in a couple of minutes, becoming fairly flat. Fairly uninspired - would best be served cold on a hot day.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
First whiffs of this is grassy corn. It doesn’t really smell great. It mellows out a bit to more of a non-descript aroma. I’m bored with it already....Appearance is slightly cloudy with a nice off-white head. It lingers for a bit, it’s quite nice...Taste is not bad, it’s pretty good actually. It’s medium-light and corny sweet....Mouthfeel is medium-light. Carbonation is pretty heavy and lingers throughout the experience....Overall, it’s enjoyable. But this is MUCH better than Corona. Not something that I would want to be ’caught’ drinking, so shhhh!

355ml clear bottle. Clear and golden in the glass, just a faint ring of white bubbles for a head. Nose has corn and grains. Taste is grainy, corny with grassy hops. Light bodied with a bit of a carbonation bite. Refreshing and basic Mexican lager, I like this better than all its competitors.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear yellow poured into a pint mug with a small white head. Very thin malt flavor that was minimized by the ice cold glass.

This is an inoffensive macro Pale lager that reminds me of Peruvian Cusqueña. Pours clear gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is weakly malty with some fruity hints. Very weak, but not bad compared to other commercial lagers. Taste is pretty much non-distinct, but clean. A less feeble Corona but that’s not much. Drinkable, refreshing, but not tasteful by any means. Light bodied, watery drink. At least it’s not swill.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Copenhagen 8/3 2015. 35,5 cl bottle from Netto. The characteristic broad Modelo bottle in clear glass. Pours golden yellow with white head which dissapears almost instantly. Aroma is grainy and sour. Maybe a little glue and straws. Medium carbonation. Taste is a little grainy sweet. The aftertaste is rather weird and like I would imagine glue is tasting (I have not had the pleasure of actually tasting glue). Not a very pleasant "especial".

Better than a bud or any of the US macros...barely. Send this one back and ask for Negra Modelo.

What kind of crazy restaurant carries Modelo Especial but not Negra Modelo? May need an extra lime wedge because this one’s pretty skinny.
