This is another beer enjoyed on the beach at Cabo San Lucas. The color was amber and the head was modest. This was the best of Modelo beers enjoyed in Mexico. Little malt flavor and most taste of the mexican beers consumed in Mexico.

Had in the bottle at a BBQ. A little carmel, a bit chewy. Didn’t appear to be all that dark, but I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt, since I drank it from the bottle. I must be turning into a lightweight lately, low alcohol (<8%abv) have been buzzing me regardless of when I ate last. Oh well, can’t complain. Nothing super special here, but much better than Corona.

Brown beer with little head. Little aroma. Flavor is a little better. Has some malts and caramel, nothing overpowering. An adequate match to a good Mexican meal. Hard to imagine this coming from the same brewery as that donkey piss Corona.

Red colour with a solid off-white head.
Malty aroma with notes of citrus and hops.
Malty flavour with notes of caramel and hops.
Quite ordinary, but an OK beer with high drinkability.

This beer is the bext Mexican beer on the market. It is excellent as a pair with a great plate of mexican food. Dark, carbonated and no head.

english pint / dark copper body with dark orange highlight. good bone white head; sparkly, fair lacing, good ring, slowly diminishing, quiet. aroma mimics the flavor, and it’s not that bad. a little bit harsh, but well enough. watery, cheesiness, well carbonated, just darker malts... subtle. there’s more around the palate than to actually taste. anyway, probably the best mexican beer i ever had. (note: i like silktork’s review)

Well, I’m a sucker for Mexican food and this is the best beer to wash it down with. Certainly not an classic amber or dark ale but probably the most rich and characteristic Mexican beer, IMHO. As with all Mexican beers...a lime, dining on the deck and long evenings with friends make this a classic. Salud!!

I’m going to have to give this beer some points for being very enjoyable alongside a big plate of enchiladas. Mexican food is one of my favortie things and it takes a beer with no overpowering flavors to complement it. Dark pour no head, watered down carbonated taste. I am a true beer snob these days but I still enjoy one of these with a slice of lime. If you like it that is all that matters.

Highly carbonated and very watery. Has a small sting at the end, fairly simple and unextroadinary.
