2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark mahogany with compact foam. Fizzy mean with moderated bitter, medium-light body. Discreet.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
