A decent summer beer. Better than Corona.

Nothing too special about it, just a no thrill pale lager, good for a hot day outside, or with spicy Mexican food.

We can get this on tap at our local Mexican restaurant .......the food there is great and this on tap is also really good. Of course when you get fresh beer on tap it makes a big difference.

I am so glad that this was brought to my house, because I can't see justifying how I spent money on it. Bud light has a cleaner taste to it, and don't even mention about the pour......where is the nice crisp foam? I rated it low, because of the following. I will give it points for the nice bottle and a well done commercial, but for taste, it was pretty bland. For look, the color was nice, but not even a quarter finger of foam, and even that dissipated once I poured it. Smell, well, it was decent. Taste was not very fresh, kind of left a metallic linger.....and that was from a bottle. The only feel I had was disappointment. Overall, I didn't care for the beer, but again, pretty nice commercial.

This is one of my go to beers. I honestly don't understand why it rates so low on here. It's nothing special but it definitely is not bad. I encourage people to have it in a can if they've only had it in a bottle. It claims to be a pilsner style lager and it taste to me somewhere between your standard macro lager and standard macro pils. It's super clean out of a can. Very clear. Smells very inoffensive. Very slight skunk, but not in a bad way. I'm giving it a 4 overall because I think it is the best macro Mexican beer I've had and the overall BA ratings on here are not fair how to smooth, clean, crisp, consistent and inoffensive it really is.

For what it is. A massively produced beer. It is consistently good. Not flavorful but after a long days work a 3 pack of ice cold tall cans hits a spot that craft beer just can’t in my case. I love craft but will probably still drink modelos in my micheladas and when I want to pound several beers

A good Mexican AAL, one that I prefer to Corona, though somewhat bland. I recall having been most of the way through my first twelve-pack of these at the age of 25, when I got the call for a job interview. I brushed my teeth and came right over, aced the interview, and worked at that place for over ten years, doubling my income in the meantime. Maybe I should drink more Modelo these days, lol.
