Средненький лагерок родом из Южной Америки. Золотистый цвет, полностью отсутствует пена. Пиво очень водянистое, вкус солода с легкой горчинкой. Очень не понравился его запах, нечто похожее на тухлую воду из под крана. А так, это пиво для жаркой погоды будет вполне кстати.

12 oz can poured. Enjoyed while watching football. Enough macro lager beer ads on the TV, I decided to open up this one. I've probably had several Modelo pours over the years, but this can actually was purchased in Mexico, so it seems like the most legit way to rate it. Clean and clear golden juice pour. Apple like grains on the nose. Flavor agrees. Straw, apple. Clean, and slightly thicker than your average pale lager. Refreshing enough. No flavors that are offputting. There's settings for beers like this, and I found a decent one. Not bad.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with a fair head. Aroma of malt sweetness and bit of grain. Taste of malt sweetness and bit of grain. Mild bitterness and clean finish. Light body, crisp clean and refreshing, Surprisingly better than expected. Goes down easy.

This is one of several beers I keep in my fridge at all times. I only recently discovered it and it has become a favorite. My only complaint is that the foil is difficult to remove around the tip. Not a problem if I pour it in a glass.

2015 BJCP Category: 2A International Pale Lager

AROMA: Moderately low base malt with hint of sweetness. Faint trace of spicy hops. Clean fermentation. Nose is mild overall, but inoffensive. 8/12

APPEARANCE: Gold color (5-7) SRM. Clear body; bubbly. Small, white foam mostly dissipates. 3/3

FLAVOR: Low grainy malt sweetness with a bit of a cracker flavor. No adjunct taste is apparent (most likely an all-malt recipe). Becomes a bit sweeter as it warms. Hops are low with a peppery flavor and soft, dry bitterness. Clean fermentation profile. 15/20

MOUTHFEEL: Light body; medium-high carbonation. Refreshing with a clean, crisp finish. Quaffable and sessionable at 4.5% 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Not a very interesting beer, but it’s mostly to-spec and inoffensive. 6/10
