Haven’t had a Modelo since a fishing trip in Cabo in the 90s... it was skunky and nasty. Gave it another try after seeing a friend having one. Bought cans- I never buy beer in a clear bottle... Pleasantly surprised. It has a little more heft than your typical macro- and a slight spicy hop edge. Reminds of a Czech pilsner a little... Would be a good tasty lawn mower beer. Of course I tend to drink stouts in the summer and light in the winter. Mostly because I am envisioning the sun during the doldrums of winter- complete with tropical shirts and tiki drinks in January. I will buy Modelo again Didn’t catch any fish on that trip either...

Bottle at Black Prince, New Haw. Malty aroma with a sharp edge. Amber gold. No head. Light bitter. Hints of citrus. Malts again. Soda esque element from the fizzy carbonation. Light and watery. Soda carbonation, as mentioned. Abrupt finish. OK. Too fizzy. Too little flava.

12oz bottle from the bottle. Golden color. Little flavor, nothing offensive. Nice on a hot day.

Decent Mexican beer. There are much better, but it’s decent. Not recommended if you’re on a budget in Canada, as it can be as high as 40 dollars for 24.(depending on region). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Just a decent beer. Better cold, probably my favorite or second favorite Mexican beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great beer for a barbecue. Like I’ve said before, it’s either you love it or hate it type of beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nothing special, an avergae lager, good looking gold color with good carbonatation, light body and not much flavour.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2017 Pale yellow in colour , fast disappearing white head. not much of an aroma but a nice alternative to corona larger when in chiquitos

Pours a clear golden colour with a small white head. Malty aroma with notes of bread: similar to Czehwar. Taste matches the aroma with subtle hoppy notes. Medium carbonation. Not bad but nothing spectacular.
