3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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 !

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a pint glass. Light straw color with a half inch of head that quickly disappeared to just covering the surface.
Fairly fragrant for its style. Lots of honeysuckle... actually only honeysuckle, but still nice.
The taste is hard to pin down. Smooth with a slight honey flavor midway through. The taste is "refreshing" without any bite.
Light towards medium body with moderate carbonation. Crisp and clean.
One of the top beers for its style. Smooth and easy drinking, plus it smells good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Presentation: It was poured from a clear bottle into a Pilsener glass.
Appearance: The body has very good clarity, some visible carbonation and a bright golden color. It forms only a small bright white head that fades fast. The fast fading head is reduced to just a small ring of foam that makes some slick lacing.
Smell: The aroma is full of adjunct filled malt with some dry hay and grassy hops.
Taste/Mouth: There are some mild corny and grainy flavors with some other cooked vegetable notes and grassy hay like notes. The finish is very clean with some mild bitterness quickly fading off the tongue. The palate is crisp and easy drinking with a light to medium body and nice active carbonation.
Notes: Not bad at all and when served ice cold it works well to clean the palate of hot spicy Tex/Mex food.

Enjoyable, crisp beer. I prefer Tecate, however. This one is good without lime and salt, and best out of the bottle. Has an enjoyable hop bite and a slightly bitter goodness to it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
translucent gold with no head, medium-light body with medium-high carbonation.
aroma: sweet biscuity malt.
taste: biscuity malt sweetness, and faint herbal hops.
well balanced, and much better than i expected. it’s not even skunky tasting, even with the clear bottle. it must have just been taken out of the case. not really any noteworthy adjunct or off flavors either. seems like an underrated victim of beer prejudice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear deep gold with a large white long lasting head. Spotty lacing.
Nice grainy grassy herbal aroma. Taste is well balanced with sweet malts dominating in the beginning then the grassy herbal hops show up with a light but distinct bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a smooth easy drinking quality. With the relatively low abv. of 4.4% this has so much more flavor than any light beer on the market.
