355ml can poured into pint glass 28/8/12

A golden yellows liquid is darker then I expected, a few streams of bubbles but nothing for foam or lace

S some faint sweet malt but there´s almost nothing going on here at all

T a little grass perhaps? again pretty close too water

M light but not watery too my surprise, decent carbonation and a clean aftertaste if you can believe that

O nothing offensive other then the complete lack of taste and smell, about as basic as a beer can get

2.9% makes it something to hydrate with in between double Margaritas at the swim up bar, don´t bother with this one

A lot like regular only thinner, along with malts and a beery finish. Was expecting it to be very light but drinkable and that pretty much sums it up.

I drank this from a bottle into a pint glass in Puerto Vallarta.

This is beer is medium clear gold with a about a finger of head. Retention is lacing decent lacing.

The aroma is light with hops, and the taste is the same. There is a light bitter taste that is unpleasant and detracts from its drinkability. Corona or Pacifico are a better option.

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.

12 ounce can from a local market

Poured into a pint glass with a golden color and no head at all

Tasted okay for a light beer, but then the aftertaste came and that was a different story

Could drink several of these if desired because it so light

Not recommended
