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.

Not much here. Drink it COLD! Slightly better than a Corona for what thats worth. In the restaraunt I tried this in they served it with a glass rimmed with salt and a lime.....

Dark gold, small head. Skunky with nots of malt in aroma. Strong skunk flavor with some sourness. A touch of bitterness in the finish.

Metallic tones, due to the can, but just another weak yellow fizzy Mexican beer. This seemed to be especially popular with the construction workers in Puerta Villarta.

Straw yellow beer with a fast-fading head. Aroma of light malts, some floral hops, and a skunk or two. Flavor of overripe lemons and adjuncts with a finish that is both sour and bitter. This is pretty bad stuff. Almost begs a chaser to kill the flavor.

Thought I would give this a try since Negra Modelo is fairly drinkable and what I usually like to order at a mexican restaurant. Mistake... awful stuff, did not finish half of it before flagging the waitress to bring me a "dark ale".

Golden color with little or no head. The taste is sweet light malty and light notes of corn. Light hoppy notes on the palate. Very boring and thin.

Clear gold appearance in the clear bottle (which is a bad idea) The aroma is of other skunky mexican pale lagers along with the taste. It is better than Corona, but not by very much.

This pale lager pours a light yellow gold color from a clear 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is grainy, grassy, corny and sweet. A light bodied pale lager. Malts are mild, cereal and grainy. Hops are slightly bitter and a touch spicy. Lively carbonation. Somewhat metallic tasting and that flavor, sad to say, is the major flavor component to that beer. Sort of like beer flavored water; buy not in a good way. It has no off tastes because it has almost no flavor at all. Mouthfeel is thin. Finish is crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

leaparsons (8399) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2006
Bottle. Golden with no head. Aromas are thin grain with corn, some salty butter and metal. Flavours are incredibly thin - gritty grain and weak lemon with strong soda water notes. Not very especial.

Bottle. Not much going on here. Pours light golden with very little head. Had salty flavor with bland finish. Maybe better than corona?
