Poured a clear golden color with no head. Standard, but not horrible. Scents of maize, lager yeast and malt. Standard for an American Adjunct Lager. Flavor is mild, beginning with malt, maize and lager yeast, these flavors stay throughout, with a mild hop bitterness showing up in the middle and lingering on the aftertaste, with a bit of a metallic twinge, but not a lot. It's pretty good, mild but refreshing, with a higher hop character than some AALs I've had, and a decent malt and adjunct flavor. Mouthfeel is light bodied with high carbonation. Yet again standard for the style. Overall, when rated to it's style, this is a good beer. It has more flavor than many domestic options and has little of the offensive flavors other Mexican lagers can sometimes have. If it's one's only option for a lager, for instance at a Mexican restaurant, or you want a decent, inexpensive lawnmower lager, this is a good choice.

Modelo Especial brewed by Grupo Modelo S.A. de C.V. with an ABV of 4.4% This brew pours out a dark amber color with a white head. Modelo is a filtered brew you can see right though it. The smell is rich with grans and some bitterness. This for the most part looks and smells like an American Lager. The taste is bold but light. I'm not picking up on the bitterness of this brew. You pick up on some grains but not much. Modelo Especial has a smooth clean finish to it. Almost like a light american style beer. There is not much else to say. this is a good drinkable beer. Mouthfeel is clean and refreshing. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4 out of 5. This beer is better in a can. I would get this brew again.
