UPDATED: JAN 3, 2014 still, a true middle-of-the-road mexican beer. a 24 pak of cans for 20.99; a sprinkle of lime salt across the foamless top (poured it real slow) and it was hot outside, too, but i’m inside now (it’s winter) and it tastes so terrifico with a meal of smothered burritos; jalapenos, on the side; onions, dotting a bowl of green chili and a mariachi tune filling the drinking room.

12oz bottle. Clear amber, no real head to speak of. Some citrus and grass notes, sweet palate, but otherwise not much too write about

Golden beer, light hop aroma. It’s light and sweet and..... there’s really naff all else to say. It is not unpleasant. It is a beer.

Modelo Especial: It tastes like washing down a Nutrigrain bar with a swig of orange juice and then running through the sprinkler and getting some sprinkler water in your mouth.

355ml bottle. Pours a golden yellow. Taste is "standard beer" with a medium carbonation and body. Overall your standard beer.

Having a modelo at home that I brought back from my college reunion. I saved it from being thrown out since as we all know it should really be against the law to throw away beer. Feeling sleepy but I'll power through finishing it, it is the poor man's corona after all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I love a Modelo with lime in the summer period. It's just a good light summer beer. Nothing spectacular just good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Quite typical but actually not too bad for this boring beer style. Easy drinkability with little bitterness and some corny sweetness and not too much else. Pretty smooth with adequate palate.

jsporrer (1028) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2017
Pours a clear golden yellow with a thin white head. Crisp grainy aroma. Typical Pilsner with a slightly bitter taste. Nothing special.

Aromas a lupulo terroso Buen aspecto cristalino y poca espuma En boca refrescante con un final amargo y un poco citrico
