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.

I’ve consumed enough beer at Mexican restaurants to have had this beer before, but I’d never really thought about what it tasted like and actually thought to compare to...other beers. Appearance is slightly darker than most mainstream American lagers. There is little to no head and no lacing of any kind. Nothing about this particular example of this beer indicates that anything special went into the manufacture (I hesitate to use the word brewing) of this beer (this is from a can). Smell is practically non-existent. Taste is very much of corn, and is rather sweet, like Coors Light, which I find slightly unpleasant. The next time I have Mexican food, I suspect I’ll save myself a few $$’s and drink something domestic instead...it won’t be missed.

Bottle. Pour is faint golden, almost clear yellow. Aroma is hard to pick up, but what I got was malt. Body is fuller than expected, and taste was pretty faint.

Bleh. Tastes like corona only more water and stale. I don’t have anything good to say about this beer... Not even on a hot summer day when it is ice cold.

Appearance is typical lager yellow. Aroma is malty and rather weak. Taste is weak, malty, and rather bitter; its flavor is more like that of a "lite" beer than a regular lager. Smooth but watery, it is barely drinkable and quite forgettable. Maybe the can affected it some - I have found that beers taste best on-tap, while bottles come second and cans are the worst.

Canned (710ml). -no alcohol content written on the can
Golden coloured, small airy head, lively carbonation. Faint hoppy and sweet caramelish taste with notes of corn and cardboard. Watery bitter finish. Just another Corona crap.

Eructoblaster (3292) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2008
Can - 355ml. Limpid golden body with good carbonation and a thick, diminishing white foamy head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma with bready notes. Taste, however, is absolutely watery and carries some bad metallic and chemical hints. Finish is non-existent. Typical Latin American Lager.
