jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2004
Clear, light brown color with a small off white head. Sweet malty aroma. Flavor of malt, caramel and a bit of hops on the finish. Thin bodied, but not a bad beer.

AAO (102) - Næstved, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2004
redish color. Middle head. Malty sweet aroma. Taste is malty but very watery. Not that good.....

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2004
Thin white head, dark amber colour. Sweet-malty flavour, has hints of caramel and chocolate. A very drinkable beer, and a nice surprise coming from Mexico : it is much more than a thirst-quencher and can be enjoyed in cold countries as well.

badgerben (4864) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Dark brown color with a small head. Slightly sweet aroma. Kind of a dirty malt flavor with just a pinch of hops. A tad grainy. It could have been far worse.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - DEC 2, 2004
Bottle: Pours to a dark amber color with a tiny white head that quickly disppears. Sweet aroma of malt, candy, brown sugar? Thin body, watery, with some grains, caramel, chocolate, mild bitter hops, and a tiny bit of peppery yeast. Not nearly as bad as I expected.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - DEC 2, 2004
Bottle poured a dark brown with an ok head and lots of carbonation and a sweet candy like aroma. Flavor is very good malt caramel with a good slightly bitter finish... this is a good beer.

Dark brown with fleeting fizzy head, served with a lime. Surprisingly good considering most "mexican" beers. Decent body and nice mild-malty finish. Very similar to Dos Equis Amber. I’ll drink either with my tex-mex from now on.

tsarman (794) - Northern, New Jersey, USA - NOV 26, 2004
Good for a Mexican beer, but thats not saying much. Much better than a Corona, but again...A decent "black model" but no Tyra Banks. Maybe a Naomi Campbell in her heyday, or perhaps Iman. That is all. With a lime for some reason.

Dorqui (2188) - Brescia, ITALY - NOV 21, 2004
Dark mahogany with compact foam. Fizzy mean with moderated bitter, medium-light body. Discreet.

The best of the Modelo group. Maybe not praise in that Corona is bad and their Especial is average. Still, I thought it paired well with the real Mexican food I was eating. Full flavor. The best I’ve had from that side of the border. An acquaintance from Mexico told me that this is considered the best commercial brew there.
