Modelo is a classic mexican beer. Great on a hot summer day, with a nice refreshing taste. The stubby bottle is iconic lol. Also not super expensive, so great for parties

Modelo beer offers a decent option within the Mexican beer category. While it may not be my top choice, its taste is acceptable, presenting a typical and recognizable flavor profile common in this style of beer. However, it doesn't particularly stand out to me compared to other brands in the market. The aroma may be somewhat standard and might not appeal to everyone. Overall, it's an okay choice for those seeking a familiar Mexican beer taste, but it lacks a unique or exceptional quality that would make it a standout option for me personally.

Good quality beer

Modelo Especial has a Mexican beer flavor. It is crisp and refreshing taste. It has a light, slightly malty flavor with little of sweetness. The beer is well-balanced with reasonable price. This beer finish with moderate bitterness contribute to its easy drinkability. You can enjoy as a straightforward and enjoyable beer, especially when served cold. The bootle is fat which makes it unique, but it is hard to grasp it for long time

Ok at best. Not as good as Negra...

I'm a fan of beer, but typically bourbon is preferred. I've tried just about every beer on the market. I hadn't bought it in such a long time I decided to get some to change things up. I hadn't realized how much the cost of beer had gone up in the last year or two. I don't know if I've ever bought Especial and it's probably been a decade or more since I've tried it. It was on sale so I figured I'd give it a try. It's ok, but it doesn't do anything special for me. I like niche beers, IPA's and some microbrewery stuff. For those that say this is the BEST beer probably haven't branched out and tried many others. Yes, it's mild and refreshing, but there's not much flavor. Maybe similarly to a Corona you can get more out of it with some salt and lime, but you shouldn't have to modify it to make it better. I do like a Modelo Negra with a twist of lime while at a taqueria as that has more to offer than Especial. This is by no means a bad beer and it's definitely better than domestics like Budweiser and Coors, but it's not the 'best.'

As a seasoned beer enthusiast, I recently had the pleasure of trying Modelo, and I must say, it exceeded my expectations in every way. This Mexican lager is a true gem in the world of beer, delivering a refreshing and satisfying experience that is hard to match.

I’m not a beer drinker per-say, however this is the only beer that I enjoy drinking, with the hint of a squeezed lime and a salted rim. The taste is exquisite, and price is very reasonable!

Modelo Especial is my favorite beer ever. It is the perfect beer for spending the day at the lake, or a barbecue/tailgate with friends. It is a smooth drinking beer with more flavor than a light beer. I recommend this beer to anyone!!

This is one of my favorite beers of all time. It tastes so good especially with a fresh like squeezed into it. It does need to be drunk ice cold, but I don't think any beer tastes good room temperature

I have lived in Mexico in the past and have always enjoyed their beer. Modelo beers in general have always been my favorite. I especially enjoy the Modelo Especial and Negra Modelo. Depending on the meal either one is a great drink to accompany the meal. Being back in the USA, it is wonderful to know that these fantastic beers are available here. Enjoy!!

I read that Modelo is the best selling beer now in America. It tastes good and the cost is reasonable. Who knew they could surpass Budweiser. And the bottles are cool.

My husband has recently been purchasing Modelo. Unfortunately their box best buy date said December 2023. However, the bottles expired May 2023. The bottles were expired by 2 months when purchased. A little disappointed on quality control.

Started drinking Modelo in March. I quit drinking bud light. It seems this Mexican beer supports America. I'm glad I switched . Not only does I taste 10000× better than bud light. But it's not owned or operated by liberals . Good work Modelo. You're now my after work beer of choice !
