Can cold, a little darker in color than I expected, plenty of corn, and boring malts, no hops to speak of, blah, blah, blah.

Bottle. Not much going on here. Pours light golden with very little head. Had salty flavor with bland finish. Maybe better than corona?

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2013 Bright gold color with diminishing fluffy white head and light lacing. Aroma and flavor are weak with minimal hops and a light malt finish. Clean tasting overall

Modelo Especial is "refridgerator beer" of the Barcelo Premium resort in the Mayan Riviera, Mexico. I drank plenty of cans of Modelo throughtout my stay. Apple jucie appearance, salty flavor, an overall good hot weather, take me down the beach beer.

Pale gold. very fizzy. Quite a strong toasty aroma. Taste has citric notes and some smokiness. A bland finish. Not that bad.

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.

This beer tasted like rubber. Not very pleasant. Gave 4 out of the six pack away so I didn’t have to throw it away.

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - NOV 19, 2006
Pours a light golden. The head is small, dense and creamy. Also the duration is fully lasting despite the small size. The aroma is faint and lighlty malty. The flavor has a faint maltiness with a weak finish.

Not much taste or body to this beer, but it’s still at least somewhat refreshing after a long day of traveling in Mexico.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2009 Bottled. Wow, this is worse than I imagined. A lifeless orange coloured beer which has a predominant character of cabbage water. Vegetables in both the taste and smell. Some sweet typical Mexican swill taste going on also. My third Mexican mass produced lager which scores 0.7. Good work amigos.Score 0.7
Subsequent rating scored 1.0. Average becomes 0.8
