4.47/5  rDev +98.7%

In my rankings never care the style of beer, just how much i like it, and this light beer i like a lot, actually is world class:

A: Yellow crystal, looks like a mirror, with a very flimsy foam collar, in fact i prefer drinking it from the blue bottle;

S: Very fresh and clean, sweet malt and eucalyptus;

T: Sweet malt and eucalyptus, but now with mint and floral hops;

M: Very refreshing and crisp, slightly bitter, light body and high carbonation;

D: The best light beer i have tried, if not for the appearance, reached A.

NOthing bad to say about it, but not much good to say either. It is clear and very light. Alhotugh there are commercials about its beer genuinity, maybe for people scared to get drunk in a party. It is only found in cans, but nice effort from the brewer, at least it does not taste bad, only that it has a water taste almost.

Modelo Light has a fairly thick, off-white head, a clear, bubbly, golden appearance, and even a bit of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is a rich and sweet barley malt. Taste is of a biscuity, sweet, and even slightly syrupy malt. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Modelo Light finishes crisp, clean, and refreshing. One of the best light beers I’ve ever tried, and I pick up no adjuncts with it.

This beer is watery, effervescent, refreshing, and not very flavorful. There is not a lot to like or dislike about it because I feel this is barely beer. Nonetheless, it was good on an extremely hot day in Mexico, although I thought the lower-than-average alcohol content of this beer was very apparent in both its mouthfeel (very light and refreshing) and its flavor (virtually non-existent). This beer had very little body and not much flavor with the exception of some light, and not altogether unpleasant, corn adjunct flavor. I can't recommend this beer (it won't scratch your beer itch), but I can say that I certainly appreciated the refreshing-ness it gave me.

Label lists an abv of 3.7%. Poured from a 325 ml BLUE bottle into a pint glass. I think this is my first beer from a blue bottle.

Appearance: Clear golden yellow with a white head that disappears wicked quick.

Smell: Light malty sweetness and adjuncts(corn).

Taste: Sweet and lightly skunked. Faint bitterness from the hops.

I drank this from a bottle into a pint glass in Puerto Vallarta.

This is beer is medium clear gold with a about a finger of head. Retention is lacing decent lacing.

The aroma is light with hops, and the taste is the same. There is a light bitter taste that is unpleasant and detracts from its drinkability. Corona or Pacifico are a better option.
