Not a great beer. Purports to be one of the best beers in the world, introduced to the market in 1966...but I wonder. It doesn’t taste very good, and tends to cost WAY too much in the U.S.

Botella 35,5 cl. Color dorado clarito. Espuma? En seguida desaparece. Aroma,sabor... Pasada. Contiene 2 (dos) "E". Gases. A ver, cuando se pone en la calle + 40ºC y tomar esta maravilla quimica, cambiare mi opinion.

Aroma: Subtle grass/cereal notes Appearance: Light golden color with clear liquid and a minimal white head. Taste: Light sweet notes behind a medium sourness. Palate: Light body with thin liquid and average carbonation. Subtle bitter finish. Overall: The black (and I think original) vesion is Negra Modelo and it is already soft, so a pale lager version was not surprise to be so bland.

Dose in einer Bar in Tampa. Sehr viel Kohlensäure, Aroma und Geschmack nach süßlichen Malz. Letztendlich aber trinkbar.

Go to beer on a hot sunny day! A posh Corona for sure but very much a fantastic session beer.

Mindwarp (258) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 6, 2017
Pours gold with a thin white head. Aroma is of malt and yes, grapes. Flavor is of malt and water. No aftertaste which isn’t surprising since there isn’t much taste anyway.

DocJitsu (1893) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2017
Pours a crystal clear golden with a very short white head. Corn and green grape on the nose. Full body and a crispness on the back of the tongue. Corn flavor with ample bitterness at the finish.

So you have to take the south of the border beers for what they are. Outstanding? No. But with a slice of lime after a day of yard work, pretty gosh darn good. Modelo along with Corona may be the best of the lot. A pale yellow with not much head. And no scent that I can discern. It tastes of straw and grain. Lime saves it. Very slight bitter ending. Toss one down and then drink another. You can do worse.

When served ice cold, its a good light beer with a lime or lemon. Price is decent as well when compared to others.
