A: Pale yellow with moderate carbonation and little head retention.
S: Fusel alcohols mix with creamed corn to create a rather unpleasant bouquet. It's a good thing that the aroma is rather repressed from the cold serving temperature, because it is the worst aspect of this brew.
T: Off-dry with notes of bread and corn, not much else to it. I will say that it has fewer off-flavors than most other macro-lagers.
M: Light body with moderate carbonation. I would have liked a bit more carbonation to clear away some of the corny flavor.
D: What can I say, Modelo is on par with the American macro lagers, but offered at a premium-import price. If money's not an issue to you, give it a try. It does have a character of its own, as all macro-lagers do, but it is not anything that should elevate its price to what it currently is.

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.
