A: Pours a crystal clear medium slightly golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a half finger tall bright white head that quickly reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface and a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of adjunct malts, especially corn along with some very light notes of grassy hops.
T: The taste is very similar to the smell with a light to moderate body of light malt flavors and lots of corn (including a steamed corn husk flavor like in tamales). There is a light bitterness.
M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin/watery.
O: This is much better than a lot of the other mass market Mexican beers being sold in the US. I find this beer to be pretty refreshing and matches very well with salty/spicy foods. Very easy to drink, especially on a hot summer day.

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.
