Modelo is a good mexican beer that taste excellent with lime and salt, has to be from a good store and chilled at the right temp.-If not it can be skunked and not taste as good. My opinion is that a Modelo will always taste better in Mexico.

I would never had had this beer, but I needed to grab something cold at the store to have one with a friend. Man. This beer was crisp, with no funny weird taste that others try to pass of as ’malty’ or ’hopsy’ . I was able to drink this beer with ease, so much so that I didn’t realized I had downed 3 in an hour. Yet, like a great wine in Italy, I didn’t feel drunk. What a beer. Try it!!!

UPDATED: APR 27, 2015 Damn, I like this beer. I wanted to rate it higher, but it’s not like it blows my mind or anything. This is the ultimate in the Pale Lager type of beer. It’s not my favorite type of beer, nor is it probably anyone’s favorite. Arguably the most soda-like flavor of beer, with the high carbonation, sweetness of flavor, and easy drink-ability akin to a refreshing lemonade.... It’s just the easy beer, for when you just kinda wanna relax, have a brew, and not even think about it. And damn does Modelo Especial hit that refreshing feeling. It’s smooth, it’s not too sweet, it’s likeable and soft in approach and feel. I may sounds like a freak about this....But it’s just simple, easy, smooth, and just the right bit of rough....like a kitten that you’ll play with and it’ll scratch you- you look at the little red claw marks and meet the kittens glance and you can see the childish joy it gets in causing you so slight a pain. Okay. Aroma: Bread, berries, hay, corn, a little bit alcohol...interesting. Appearance: the bottle is fucking awesome, the label pristine and sand colored. The beer is a orange-gold glow. Slight remaining sea-foam head. Taste: please refer to my previous explanation. Palate: lasting crisp taste that makes you dry of mouth and feel slightly buzzed....fizzy, sweet, cold, like a perfect summer day’s drink. overall: heaven

Ok, this beer came up in a discussion with a co-worker who goes to Mexico YEARLY... He says Modelo is the best, Corona is the Busch of Mexican beers? So I decided to try it.... 1st was in a 24 oz. can, It was decent , but.... I had to try it in a Bottle to rate it ! My 1st bottle , had that " I’ve tasted this before" taste ? I think what is was is Pilsner Urquell watered down? Or if Urquell were to make a light pilsner? I thought it was very good tasting , little fizz , light aroma , hoppy but mellow ! Very little aftertaste ... 6% ABV this would replace my Hornsby’s but not my Steel Reserve ! I would buy this a lot more often , but the price is the Biggest turn - off for me , about this Cerveza !
