2.69/5 rDev -3.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5
Appearance - Pours clear and golden with a white, half finger head. Leaves a mostly bare on the surface, with only a ring of bubbles on clinging to the side of the glass. Lacing is spotty
Smell - Definite notes of skunk, while touches of grain and sweetness make up the bulk of what's left.
Taste - Somewhat stale grain upfront, then edges on malt sweetness and a touch of grassy bitterness near the finish.
Mouthfeel - Light to medium body, with a crisp, bone dry finish.
Overall - It's drinkable, but 98% of the beers out there fit that mold. Not something I'd care to purchase, but I wouldn't turn it down if offered. Inoffensive; the kind of beer you drink to catch a buzz. It's certainly not for the enjoyment of great taste.

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.
