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.

It’s a great beer. It’s my go to beer for virtually any occasion, weather it’s relaxing at Home barbecuing or out with friends having a cold one, and at the price point you can’t go wrong. All in all I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

My holy grail of beers! Crisp refreshing taste! Add a little bit of lime, salt and a dash of Tapatio Hot Sauce and you're ready to go!! If you're looking for a Mexican Beer that's full of flavor then Modelo Especial is for you! Definitely worth a try!

This beer conflicts me. As an adjunct it fulfills its mandate. Is it a good beer? It’s okay. It is what it is. Carbonated and flavorless beer. Modelo Negra the black one has better taste.

I love a nice cold Modelo Especial when I get home after a long day, so refreshing when you're ready to kick back and relax.
