Great with dinner and a good choice if you’re tired of the normal Mexican beer fare

Very good beer, my favorite Mexican beer. Ratings too low, surprised...a lot of the ratings are screwy on here... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2017 A thin and short lived head a top a golden body. I am getting earth and grassy notes when smelled, mainly from the malt. The taste is bland then bitter, rough on the pallette. This clear bottle may have been UV exposed.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2017 A very nice standard beer to drink. Best served amazingly iced cold; Stick it in the freezer for an hour before drinking, thank me later!

355ml bottle. Pours dull gold with a small head. Aroma is grainy acrid corn and wax crayons. Taste is sweet to start. Grainy skunk and corn finish.

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
