As far as imported Mexican beer goes, Modelo is the lowest I'll go.

i mostly agree with RoyalT on the appearance and smell.

Alot of us drink this with spicy food, and a slice of lemon either stuck in the top or dropped in the beer.

It's meant to be refreshing and I think it does its job.

Offered from a friend at a camp ground pool

Poured into a solo cup
Smells of corn and grass
Taste is the typical adjunct lager. Better than your average light lager. Has some pilsner character.
Light bodied and dry. Not bad for a summer day

Would grab this over a light beer. Not too bad.
