3.1/5 rDev +11.1%
Not your average "mexican style" beer. No this is not Corona, or Tecate. Modelo has a unique flavor which pairs well with seasoned, or salted foods.
S- Corn, burned hops and malts.
T- Clean presence of corn and cooked malts. Nothing offensive about the taste and is best enjoyed without a lime, if you ask me.
M- Medium bodied, high carbonation.
A good beer to enjoy while grilling some meat. You have to respect Modelo for dressing the neck on their bottles with the gold colored wrap. Nice.

2.68/5 rDev -3.9%
A 355ml clear glass bottle with a BB of Nov 2012. ABV is stated as 4.5%. It looks just like a bottle of weewee! Acquired from Booths a little while ago.
Poured into a straight pint glass. A clear golden colour with medium carbonation. Forms a small head of white foam that dissipates rapidly. Aroma of light malt with a stale note of overcooked veg/corn and a hint of stewed hops. Faintly sulphurous. Not great.
Tastes of light malt with a mild finish. Hints of stewed hops, corn and overdone veggies. Dry, with a faint bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is watery yet crisp, with tingly carbonation and some astringency. Weak aftertaste of light malt/corn.
Meh - a fairly typical mass-produced adjunct lager. Bland and insubstantial. Drinkable enough if cold refreshment is desired - aims low and hits the target. No need to seek it out.

355ml bottle (7500-1894 bar code) Lager glass. (From my notes). Golden color, clear appearance.White froth, brief crown. Grainy, slightly corny aromas with grassy touch & light apple notes to the nose. Flavors are as expected from aromas. Subtle sweet sensation & no bitterness. Light body. Medium to high & lively carbonation. Watery texture. Crisp & refreshing. Better served cold.
