Texas

1.38/5  rDev -50.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2

Pours a super clear light yellow color, no head lots of fizz.

Skunked straight up skunk

Kinda like old fruit, bubble gum and something rotten really unpleasant.

Slick on the palate, the forced carbonation us a bit to much for me.

Why? Seriously why? Do my friends think this is classy or something? Never again

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.

Serving type: can
