Modelo is a good mexican beer that taste excellent with lime and salt, has to be from a good store and chilled at the right temp.-If not it can be skunked and not taste as good. My opinion is that a Modelo will always taste better in Mexico.

I would never had had this beer, but I needed to grab something cold at the store to have one with a friend. Man. This beer was crisp, with no funny weird taste that others try to pass of as ’malty’ or ’hopsy’ . I was able to drink this beer with ease, so much so that I didn’t realized I had downed 3 in an hour. Yet, like a great wine in Italy, I didn’t feel drunk. What a beer. Try it!!!

Ok, this beer came up in a discussion with a co-worker who goes to Mexico YEARLY... He says Modelo is the best, Corona is the Busch of Mexican beers? So I decided to try it.... 1st was in a 24 oz. can, It was decent , but.... I had to try it in a Bottle to rate it ! My 1st bottle , had that " I’ve tasted this before" taste ? I think what is was is Pilsner Urquell watered down? Or if Urquell were to make a light pilsner? I thought it was very good tasting , little fizz , light aroma , hoppy but mellow ! Very little aftertaste ... 6% ABV this would replace my Hornsby’s but not my Steel Reserve ! I would buy this a lot more often , but the price is the Biggest turn - off for me , about this Cerveza !

From the can poured a golden brew with a white head. Well balanced aromas an flavors of malt and hop with a hint of honey.Medium bodied and good when very cold.

Poured into a pint glass. Light straw color with a half inch of head that quickly disappeared to just covering the surface. Fairly fragrant for its style. Lots of honeysuckle... actually only honeysuckle, but still nice. The taste is hard to pin down. Smooth with a slight honey flavor midway through. The taste is "refreshing" without any bite. Light towards medium body with moderate carbonation. Crisp and clean. One of the top beers for its style. Smooth and easy drinking, plus it smells good.
