look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a bottle into a glass.

A- Pale Straw color with a decent head. Doesn't look much different that any other of its kind.

S-Hints of corn and other grains, not much to say other than that.

T- I did enjoy its taste, especially when compared to a corona or other adjunct lagers. Fizzy and hints of corn.

M-Light bodied and fizzy, not overly carbonated. Fairly smooth.

O-Not a bad beer but not the best either. It is one of the better adjunct lagers out there and priced reasonably and is plentiful. If you like mexican beers then Modelos are the best there is in my opinion.
