I love Modelo Especial! Hands down my favorite beer. Forget Corona. Leave it to the spring breakers in Cancun. When you are looking for a nice Mexican beer that is easy to drink, quenches your thirst, and reminds of you sunnier days then this is your beer!
MMMM... I wish I had one right now!

the original "bull´s ball" huevo de toro, is very popular in my city over any brands of its rival brewery, but in general is exceptional for a party time, buddies reunion, smell fabulous, taste exceptional, like a real german lager beer, grupo model brewer of this beer had a lot of beer most are german or european styles, for many drinkers this is good, every brands have its drinkers.

If you like mexican beers, this is a fantastic, light mexican brew. Would strongly recommend to anyone. The second I open this beer it reminds me of the Cancun sun. If you dont like this beer, then you just dont appreciate the flavor a mexican beer. Viva Mexico, Viva Modelo

My favorite brew from south of the border. The neglected little brother of Negro Modelo, Modelo Especial, is an exceptional crisp clean summer beer. And forget man laws, a lime is a need addition. Often less expensive then the corporate mogul corona; this beer is a better substitute for august days and mowing lawns or should I say " para cortando el cesped"

CLear, with a considerably foam. BUt it is a lager after all, a little bitter sometimes, not for a party or a football match reunion, but it can give you a good time in a chat. PErhaps the best beer of this brewery even better than Corona, well, you know.

Bought with lunch at a local Mexican restaurant...served chilled in a can along with a frosted glass. I started drinking out of the can, and then poured into the glass after the chill left.
A=Very nice, darker golden...very good for the style. Only a bit of a head.
S=I don't remember smelling much, other than a faint whiff of hops...no corn smell.
T=For the style, this is much better than Corona, Bud, and most other BMC's--sturdy maltiness with moderate hopping, and not too sweet. Still a bit less flavorful than, say, Batch 19.
M=Moderate body...perhaps a bit too much carbonation, but not overpowering.
O=For an AAL, it is hard to do much better...would like to see more body and flavor, but a good representation for a session beer...I would like to try on tap.

First of all this beer is better then that piss corona!
Pours golden, nice finish...
I prefer a lime, goes great with fried foods!
Definitely not the best mexican beer but not the worst.
I could go on and on about this beer but it looks like everbody is saying the same thing! Try it if you haven't had it though!

Appearance: Looks a lot like Pacífico...darker than Corona. Some head retention and carbonation.
Smell: Smells pretty malty and that's about it. Refreshing, but wish it had more bite/crispness.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Above average taste for this style. The malt surpasses any other tastes, but does not overwhelm. Nice crisp refreshness.
Drinkability: I could easily enjoy a few of these with a meal.
Overall: In my opinion, no beer goes better with Mexican food than Modelo Especial. Thumbs up.
