From the 12 fl. oz. can marked K0720039-14:41. Sampled on February 19, 2013
I made some homemade salsa and I just had to crack open a can of Mexican beer. Today it happened to be Modelo Especial. The pour is a nice golden yellow with a fizzy white head the dissolves quickly.
I did use the lime wedge so most of my analysis is tainted. But ignoring the lime I get a corn, pale grainy malts, and a clean hop character.
The body is light and creamy.
The taste has this bready malt forward note with a clean hop finish. It does what it is supposed to do.
Serving type: can

(bottle code: D034A128 - poured into a pilsner glass)
A: rapidly sizzling-out head... crystal-clear, lion's mane gold colored liquid...
S: pancake batter?... dusty upholstery?...
T: typical N. American lager characteristics, overall... stale Ritz cracker, popcorn... mild dry grass, mist of proofing dough... hint of toasted husk in the aftertaste... pizza with green peppers(?!), very late
M: clean, soft... moderate tingle throughout... a bit medium-bodied for an adjunct lager, typical of the Mexican examples... dry, semi-flat finish
O: not terrible... about what I expected... not as nice as Bohemia, but still good enough to drink all night on its own or with spicy, greasy Mexican dishes
Serving type: bottle
