Enjoy the authentic and original taste of Modelo® Especial™ Beer (12 fl. oz. can, 24 pk.). This beer is made using its nearly 100-year-old recipe and adheres to the same standards it did when first produced in 1925.

What Does the Modelo Especial Beer Taste Like?

The Especial beer is a Mexican pilsner-style lager. That means it is lightly hoppy but also a bit sweet. It is noted for the crispness and cleanness of the finish. If you have ever had any other Mexican pilsners, this Modelo beer is considered the model that all others follow. The makers say that it has a honey and orange blossom aroma along with hints of herbal flavors and scents to make it an unforgettable experience.

Is This Modelo Especial Beer Made in Mexico?

Yes, this lager is brewed in Mexico and is considered an imported beer, not a domestic beer.

How Much Alcohol is in a Can of Modelo?

This product features ABV 4.4% but is not the same as the Modelo Beer Light™. That is a separate light lager style beer that the company introduced only around 1994. This beer has around 145 calories per serving.

How Much Beer Is in This Package?

You get 12 cans of beer, which adds up to a total of 288 ounces. That means it might be the best Modelo beer price available. If your goal is to find the most affordable Modelo Especial beer price buying in the case rather than the six-pack is usually going to be your best option.

Is This Beer a Good Choice for Making Cocktails?

Yes, the brewers of this beer indicate that it is a great choice for an array of cocktails that require a premium beer as the main ingredient. Options like Pinta de Verano or the Con Plomo cocktails are but a few good examples of recipes that would benefit from the use of this beer.
