12 oz. bottle for $1.79 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a clear, delightfully golden body with a foamy, white head.
Smell: Lightly skunked nose with notes of grain husks and cooked corn.
Taste: Husky grains and maize with a light cereal sweetness. Tiny, tiny bit of sourness. Light hop bitterness is sufficient enough to give this beer a dry finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied, but thankfully lacks the wateriness of its brethren. Medium-plus carbonation.
Drinkability: No outright hideous, but, if you find yourself in a Mexican restaurant and need a beer, I'd sooner reach for a Negra Modelo.
Serving type: bottle

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.
