12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Sept. 30, 2012 (someone left it over here after a party on Sept. 30, 2012). Less than a finger of head, that dissipated right away. Yellow golden pale with white head. Bad retention all-around.
Smelled pretty good for an American Adjunct Lager. Got bread, cereal, grass and a honey sweetness.
Tasted similar to the nose, but not as good. Got a more skunky version of the smell. Bread, cereal, grass, corn, grains, very very very slight lemon hops, finishing with a surprising bitterness.
Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-above average carbonation. Abrupt, watery finish with some slight bitterness.
Not too bad for the type of beer. This was the first I ever had of it, but I was pleasantly surprised.

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.
