Mike_in_Kansas (23) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Poured from 12 oz. bottle into glass mug. Pours a medium clear sparkling yellow color with a very small white fizzy head with minimal lacing that dissipates quickly. Smells of faint grain/hay, with slight citrus & grass odor. Initial flavor is very light cereal with a slight acidic taste, with a short sour/bitter finish. Body is very light with a watery texture and soft carbonation that diminishes in a couple of minutes, becoming fairly flat. Fairly uninspired - would best be served cold on a hot day.

Bottle from Brewhouse and Kitchen, Bedford. Clear, golden, slightly carbonated. Slight skunk in the aroma with some cardboard and musty citrus. Cleaner taste than I'd envisaged. Refreshing without the distraction of flavour. I've had worse.

vinivini (2828) - Gomel, BELARUS - OCT 17, 2017
Bottle. Clear golden colour, small white head of very low retention. Aroma: skunk, grainy malts, honey, restrained esters. Light to medium body. Medium sweet malty taste. grainy, some caramel. Low to light bitterness. What is 'especial' about it?

The best lager beer. Excellent flavour and richness. Nothing like those appalling american lagers that taste like water. Viva Mexico!

Средненький лагерок родом из Южной Америки. Золотистый цвет, полностью отсутствует пена. Пиво очень водянистое, вкус солода с легкой горчинкой. Очень не понравился его запах, нечто похожее на тухлую воду из под крана. А так, это пиво для жаркой погоды будет вполне кстати.

12 oz can poured. Enjoyed while watching football. Enough macro lager beer ads on the TV, I decided to open up this one. I've probably had several Modelo pours over the years, but this can actually was purchased in Mexico, so it seems like the most legit way to rate it. Clean and clear golden juice pour. Apple like grains on the nose. Flavor agrees. Straw, apple. Clean, and slightly thicker than your average pale lager. Refreshing enough. No flavors that are offputting. There's settings for beers like this, and I found a decent one. Not bad.
