12oz. can into pint glass
A: Yellow with a very short-lived and anemic white head.
S: I have to stick my nose into the glass to smell anything, but there's a little sweetness, faint citrus, and that's all I can get. Maybe if the head had lasted longer...
T/M: light, "soda water" mouthfeel -- to be expected with this style. Taste is grainy with a light balancing bitterness. If I let it get too warm, the corn starts to really dominate the flavor profile and it gets kinda nasty. Best to drink this one cold. As long as it's kept at the proper temperature, though, it's actually really good for an adjunct lager because it is fairly balanced and there are no real off-flavors.
D: Great hot weather session beer when kept at the proper temperature.
Serving type: can

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.
