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.
Serving type: can
