2.83/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Aggressive pour only gets you about half a finger of mixed bubble size head, pure white, lacks meaningful retention as well as lacing. The liquid is a blend of browns and yellows based in orange, has a metallic sheen which brightens it some, clear on the whole, a few lazy bubbles meandering here and there. Basic nose of grains, wheat, straw and then banana and corn, mild presence of flowers and peach, apple fruit, nothing really stands out from the pack, while uninteresting equally inoffensive. Medium-bodied, for its overall weight comes across as dense and unyielding, were it not for the charge put into it by the carbonation you might not feel it move. The initial sweetness provided by the banana, yeast, clove, flowers and corn fades in the face of wheat germ, rye and dried brown straw. Lowgrade mixed white citrus and stone fruits. More dirt than earthiness, increasingly metallic through the finish. Not much more to say, lacks the native complexity to elicit further prose.

Clean crisp and light. Not your typical light beer in that it's cleanliness taste is not muddled by sweetness.

12 ounce bottle

Pours light caramel, clear under a thin and vanishing off white head, that leaves no lacing.

Just a hint of malt on the nose.

Thin and on the watery side, with just some faint caramel, and sweet malt. Would be passable on a warm day or if I was actually in mexico eating some tacos with hot sauce. Besides that stay away.

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is grain and grass with not too much else going on. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of grain and grass, with some very sweet malt in there as well. Medium carbonation and medium mouthfeel. Extremely simple, but actually not too bad. Better than expected.

Dark gold to light brown in color with wonderful clarity. Just a trace of white head covers about a third of the top. Aroma is predominantly corn but there is also light malt. The taste is similar to Pacifico with corn being dominant. There's a coppery hop bitterness at the very back of the palate that is prevalent in the fade. The mouth is lightly carbonated. Another warm weather quaffer from Mexico.

Undated 12 oz bottle served in a lager glass. Pours with a deep medium amber body and a moderate size head that displays very good retention and leaves plenty of lacing on the glass.

Aroma: primarily Pilsner style hops, but with some faint baked bread

Flavor: mainly Pilsner style hops with some faint baked bread and mild+ bitterness. I can't agree with Modelo that this has "strong flavor", but it is flavorful and bold in the realm of mass-produced Mexican lagers.

Mouthfeel: Light body with very crisp carbonation and a dry finish.
