Poured from the clear 12oz bottle with foiled cap into a pilsner glass. I really can't believe the presentation of this beer. The foil for classiness paired with the clear bottle showing off this pale lager just struck me as sort of ironic and pretentious. There really is nothing remarkable about this beer. I guess the "classy" presentation works to attract buyers, differentiating it from the "less classy" beers all around it on the gas station shelves.
In reality it is no different. This is a completely average and typical adjunct lager, and I'm sure in a blind taste test would be almost indistinguishable from the others. It's a bit lighter I guess, but then the clear bottle actually hinders it from being as drinkable.
All around mediocre.

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.
