look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

355ml can poured into pint glass 28/8/12

A golden yellows liquid is darker then I expected, a few streams of bubbles but nothing for foam or lace

S some faint sweet malt but there´s almost nothing going on here at all

T a little grass perhaps? again pretty close too water

M light but not watery too my surprise, decent carbonation and a clean aftertaste if you can believe that

O nothing offensive other then the complete lack of taste and smell, about as basic as a beer can get

2.9% makes it something to hydrate with in between double Margaritas at the swim up bar, don´t bother with this one

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.

12 ounce can from a local market

Poured into a pint glass with a golden color and no head at all

Tasted okay for a light beer, but then the aftertaste came and that was a different story

Could drink several of these if desired because it so light

Not recommended

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.

See pretty much any other light Mexican beer. Very easy to drink but lacking flavor. Very pale colored. Grainy, corn flavor with mild (sort of) hops but watered down and a little stale tasting. It is what it is. As far as light beers go however it really isn't that bad.
