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.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Appearance: clear gold marked by a slow stream of bubbles. Meager head leaves a meager white collar and not much of anything else.
Nose: raw grains and raw corn. Wet straw for a touch of dankness; not too overwhelming though. Wet lemon peel; like it’s been sitting in a glass of now melted ice water all day long.
Palate: wet. Bread crust and grains stumble into a dry finish of stale bread crusts. Dried corn kernels in the back of each swallow.
Final Thoughts: meh. Same old, same old. If you’re going to go Modelo, get the Negra.

Tall Can. Pours a golden yellow with a thin white head. While this "might" be better than the bmc’s, it’s certainly not by much. Its a pretty crappy beer no matter how you cut it. Cheers!

Small bottle. Pale golden, head disappears very fast. Faint aroma of corn and vague malts. Incredibly bland taste, yet it’s not even close to being cold. No hops, bland finish. Nothing to explore here.

To us, this beer tastes similar to Old Milwaukee. We do not like it at all.

kramer (5254) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a minimal fizzy white head that faded quickly. The nose is soggy wet grain with a little corn and sulphur. The flavor is much the same, not much to speak of, save for that sulphur laced corn sweetness. Weak and watery mouthfeel with a lot of fizzy carbonation. Not so good, as expected.

Ljusgul i färgen, vitt skum. Doftar milt av majs malt, lite citrus, gräs hö. Smakar vattnigt, majs, gräs, hö, lite citrus.

Bottle at chimay changa. Skunk corn piwdery aroma. Clear golden yellow no head, clear bottle and some foil from the cap came of. Very watery palete very little flavour. Corn and chemical. Some bitterness. Just awful.

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 9, 2013
24 fl oz / 710mL bottle into a pint glass. Served cold. Aroma: Definite skunky, clear-glass-bottle reek. Cereals. Appearance: Crystal clear bright yellow with a soda-like white head that quickly fizzes away. Taste: Honestly, not as bad as I was expecting. Slightly metallic. Pretty flavor neutral though. While you’re drinking it, there’s some very mild bitterness, but once you stop, the flavor is gone. If that’s what you like, great. Points for not being Olde-E bad. Palate: Pretty crisp. Light, slightly watery. Overall: I mean, if you’re looking for a light beer that isn’t a "light" beer, this might be good. It’s not as foul as Corona. Pretty decent, but I wouldn’t seek it out or drink it again.

R2k2 (385) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2013
Somewhat, dark-yellow colored beer, but it has a regular white foamy head. Somewhat sweet/hoppy aroma, but not very present. Slightly bitter taste, and a slightly bitter aftertaste which vanishes quite soon. ietwat donkerder geel dan gewoon, maar wel de bekende witte stevige kop schuim. Ietwat zoetig/hoppig aroma, maar niet echt aanwezig. Licht bittere smaak, en de ietwat licht bittere nasmaak is ook snel weg. Niet echt je-van-het.

As said by many other people, good for a hot day and thats about it. The bottle is cool though.
