Modelo Especial pours a pale golden with a bit more head than other imported cervezas with light-moderate carbonation. There is definitely more of a malt characteristic than Corona, which makes its flavor slightly more complex but much less refreshing. In fact, this beer is pretty devoid of anything noticeable in terms of hops, except for what is standard in any lower end lager. Furthermore, the aroma is very faint, a bit sweet, and from my experience both the scent and flavor are adversely effected by the clear glass bottle, as they can be a bit on the skunky side; cans are the way to go with this one. It’s decent enough, but like many others in its genre, just not worth the import price tag.
12oz bottle from the bottle. Golden color. Little flavor, nothing offensive. Nice on a hot day.

Decent Mexican beer. There are much better, but it’s decent. Not recommended if you’re on a budget in Canada, as it can be as high as 40 dollars for 24.(depending on region).

Just a decent beer. Better cold, probably my favorite or second favorite Mexican beer.

Great beer for a barbecue. Like I’ve said before, it’s either you love it or hate it type of beer

Nothing special, an avergae lager, good looking gold color with good carbonatation, light body and not much flavour. deepdrinker (369) - Leeds, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2017

Pours a clear golden colour with a small white head. Malty aroma with notes of bread: similar to Czehwar. Taste matches the aroma with subtle hoppy notes. Medium carbonation. Not bad but nothing spectacular. Thegmarshall () - Pontyclun, WALES - NOV 17, 2017
