A ’decent’ offering from Mexico.The usual corn and grain flavored beer but modelo is a far better buy than corona for both taste and price. Lime is useful but not required.

Gangstergafje (369) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2015
The beer looks nothing special. It is a little like corona. The color is a darker golden yellow. The beer is crystal clear and a few little bubbles are rising to the top. A little layer of extremely rough foam forms on top of the beer after pouring, but is disappears extremely fast and not a single bit of foam is left. All in all, the looks aren’t really special. The smell is nice. It is fresh and has a little herbal aroma in it. I might smell some hops. The smell is a little bitter, which is nice. There isn’t much else in the smell. The taste is slightly less than the taste. The bitternes has an unpleasant thing about it. It is a little bready. The taste also has a fresh hoppy undertone, which is nice. The beer is not bad, not very special, just beer.

Pours a straw from the tap, little head. Sweet, adjunct-y aroma and flavor, but beats a Corona.

sonotono (190) - torino, ITALY - OCT 17, 2015
Bottiglia 35.5 cc. Odore cereali, sapore tenue dolce, amaro inesistente. Non il mio genere preferito, ma sicuramente ci sono birre pari tipologia migliori.
