Ordered a Negra Modelo and they brought me this instead. Thought, "well, I haven't had one yet so I'll give it a try."
Pours a light wheaty clear gold with basically no head, although I was pouring down the side of the glass. Descent effervescence.
Smelled light and lagery. Nothing that set it apart from most lagers like this except possibly a hint of citrus, although that may have been a result of the lime they jammed in the neck of the bottle.
The taste was acceptable. Barley and lager malts, again with a hint of citrus. No hops or any bitterness.
Feels pretty fizzy which is nice. Otherwise not to full and not too thin.
Overall, a descent Mexican lager. I still prefer Negra or even Dos Equis, but as long as you aren't expecting something spectacular, this beer will quench your thirst.

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.
