Modelo Especial brewed by Grupo Modelo S.A. de C.V. with an ABV of 4.40% This brew pours out a dark amber color with a white head. Modelo is a filtered brew you can see right though it. The smell is rich with grans , malts and some bitterness. There is also a hit of hops in the smell of this brew. This for the most part looks and smells like an American Lager. Now I'm not saying that is a bad thing. The taste of Modelo Especial is bold but light. Modelo Especial has a small bite to it but nothing bad. You pick up on grains and malts, and some hops in the taste of this brew. This brew has a nice balance to it, there is nothing overpowering about this brew. Modelo Especial has a smooth clean finish to it. Almost like a light American style beer. There is not much else to say. this is a good drinkable beer. The mouthfeel of Modelo Especial is clean, smooth and refreshing. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4 out of 5. This beer is better in a can. I would get this brew again. Grupo Modelo S.A. de C.V. did a nice job with this one.
