Pours out a crystal clear golden yellow with a thin white head that immediately disappears. Leaves no lace whatsoever. Could easily be confused with cheap apple juice or other yellow liquid.
Very typical macro lager. Slightly malty with a bit of musk and hops.
Malty sweet, extremely light hops and a twinge of bitterness to finish it off. Nothing but average here.
Moderate carbonation in a smooth, medium-light bodied brew. Leaves the mouth watery (anti-dry, not salivating...).
Definitely a summer brew which will quench a thirst but leave you dissatisfied if you're looking for a real beer experience. Nothing worth buying if you can get a domestic brew as a replacement.
Not much to say, neither disappointed nor impressed, it is what it 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.
