GTCruiser01's rating

   AROMA 2/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 2/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 8/20

Deep yellow, very clean, without bubbles. White head, not too much, and not too compact. At the smell, beside malt and biscuit, it is strongly citric. Fizzy. Again malt in the taste, and very citric

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 (1024) - 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.

alvaro78 (495) - Sevilla, SPAIN - JUN 26, 2017
Aromas a lupulo terroso Buen aspecto cristalino y poca espuma En boca refrescante con un final amargo y un poco citrico

MarcoBasile (413) - DENMARK - JUN 22, 2017
Pours super pale with a white head. Aroma is typical lager. All the usual suspects; grain, pale malts, corn and some citrusy notes. Taste is malty and corny sweet. Some crisp citrusy notes in the finish. Light as day. Watery body, soft carbonation and light body.

Immediate tangy bitter taste. Not a big fan of Corona either but I'd drink that over Modelo any day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
