Label lists an abv of 3.7%. Poured from a 325 ml BLUE bottle into a pint glass. I think this is my first beer from a blue bottle.

Appearance: Clear golden yellow with a white head that disappears wicked quick.

Smell: Light malty sweetness and adjuncts(corn).

Taste: Sweet and lightly skunked. Faint bitterness from the hops.

Modelo Light has a fairly thick, off-white head, a clear, bubbly, golden appearance, and even a bit of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is a rich and sweet barley malt. Taste is of a biscuity, sweet, and even slightly syrupy malt. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Modelo Light finishes crisp, clean, and refreshing. One of the best light beers I’ve ever tried, and I pick up no adjuncts with it.

In my rankings never care the style of beer, just how much i like it, and this light beer i like a lot, actually is world class:

A: Yellow crystal, looks like a mirror, with a very flimsy foam collar, in fact i prefer drinking it from the blue bottle;

S: Very fresh and clean, sweet malt and eucalyptus;

T: Sweet malt and eucalyptus, but now with mint and floral hops;

M: Very refreshing and crisp, slightly bitter, light body and high carbonation;

D: The best light beer i have tried, if not for the appearance, reached A.

Reviewed from notes.
Can of 355 ml, ABV is only 2.9%.
Colour is golden yellow with a one finger head that disappeared rather quickly. I have yet to find a mexican beer with a head that lasts half a minute.
Very bad aroma, I thought I was smelling my feet while I was drinking it.
Taste is better but nothing obviously traceable.
Really thin on the body with very light carbonation.

This one was floating in the fridge for a while so in honor of my recent Mexico trip and NBS, thought it would be time.

A: Pale pee yellow with no head and/or lacing.

S: Smells like a macro, a little extra in terms of skunkiness here. maybe age didnt do it wonders.

T: Corn and a horrific light beer. This makes miller lite taste great.

M: Over carbonated and poppy like a soda.

D: Worst light beer Ive ever had. Strongly prefer Miller, Hein and esp Sam Adams. This was flat out bad.

¡Salud! (With something else, please, because last night was the first AND last time I had this one).
