Poured out of a fatty-boom-batty 24 oz can into a pint glass. Frail head but hey, it hangs around for a little while. A light orange color, crystal clear to the point where an old person might want to pour a pint to use as a magnifying glass.
Smells of pizza crust and steamed vegetables. Very grainy in a perfectly inoffensive manner.
Taste is... not there? Even within the style this one has a limited taste profile until the finish, where a light grain note lingers. Tastes like mineral water more than anything. All that exists is a faint corn note... at least it's not nasty, but boy is this vapid. Would prefer more corn (and yes, I am serious).
Mouthfeel is peppy, goes down smooth and quickly.
You could pound this like no other, but the drinkability is dinged for the price of such a bland brew. If you are looking for a faint macro lager, it is cheaper to get it from within the US.

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.
