Brewed as a model of what good beer should be, this rich, full-flavored Pilsner-style Lager delivers a crisp, refreshing taste. Well-balanced taste and light hop character with a crisp, clean finish. Modelo Especial is characterized by an orange blossom honey aroma with a hint of herb. Modelo Especial is a beer born with the Fighting Spirit. It’s brewed with time, effort, and determination to create the model Mexican lager. Everyone knows that hard work deserves a fitting reward – a Pilsner-style Lager with a clean, crisp taste. Modelo Especial's Mexican culture is a large part of who we are. Since the first bottle came off the assembly line in 1925, Modelo Especial has been a part of Mexican culture. It's a fixture at major holidays, family celebrations, and friendly get-togethers from Sonora to Chiapas. With the help of talented chefs and bartenders from around the world, we’ve crafted a selection of delicious dishes and beer cocktails that represent the very best flavors of Mexico and beyond.

I honestly don’t know what it is with this beer but I just like it taste really good with some fresh squeezed lemons in it with some salt around the rim it’s not too bitter or too much of a strong beer taste it’s actually really good.

Modelo is one of my favorite beers. It is light, and pleasing to almost every beer drinker’s palate, and my go to beer choice if it’s available. I would definitely recommend it to others who enjoy a light, refreshing beer.

Models Especial is very smooth. Yet has a bit stronger bite. It has a fun festive packaging. It definitely meets my expectations. It’s a little more expensive but worth it.

No me gustan las cervezas, sin embargo, mi familia le encanta tomarlas muy frías con un toque de limón y les encantan. La han comprado mucho, incluso mas que la corona por lo económica que es en Walmart, y si la compraría otra vez para que ellos comprartan en mi casa.

I don’t really like beer, but much rather prefer it than liquor and modelos are the only beers I can actually stomach. Such an amazing smooth and rich taste to it.
