Drizly Expert Notes

Modelo Especial is special enough that you'll find the top of each bottle gift wrapped in gold foil that's just begging to be ripped open. It's unique packaging style is a testament to the heritage of the beer nestled within. Developed from time tested German lager recipes and molded to encapsulate all that is great about the Mexican lifestyle, this cold and refreshing beer is a definite go-to for all of your celebration needs.

Brewed to be light and refreshing, one doesn't even need to pour a Modelo Especial into a cup to witness it's clarity right through the clear glass bottle. It's like a ray of sunshine burrowed in your hand. The subtle barley character pronounces a distinct, but pleasant note of orange blossom honey and the accompanying hops give a subdued hint of freshly cut grass. The flavors are ideal for a warm day and are amplified to infinity when treated with a squeeze of lime and a hint of salt or when turned into a classic michelada with a bit of tomato juice in addition to the latter.

Modelo Especial showcases it's strong mexican heritage and should be treated with the respect that it so well deserves. Serve up a six pack of this beer the next time that you're firing up the grill for some home cooked carne asada tacos complete with cilantro, onions, lime, and the hot sauce of your choice. Pair it with a big Sunday morning chilaquiles brunch or chug it down with a plate of cheesey nachos while watching the big game.
