The Quest for the Best Cheap Beer in a Can continues, episode 4: Modelo Especial
Is this supposed to be the Mexican Budweiser? Cause if it is, I moving south of the border! This is hella good compared to the last 3 beers I reviewed, plus the alcohol content to make up for any poor taste.
% Alcohol: 6
Price: $6.99/6 pack = $1.17/12 oz. can
Color: A very nice amber, much darker than a budweiser.
Aroma: A hint of floral, but much more than that.
First Sip: I could almost taste a bit of hops, perhaps it was wishful thinking though.
Aftertaste: Not unpleasant, lacked the artificial vomit-inducing back of the throat sensation that Bud Light gave me.
Overall: Not too bad. Very average as things go. If it were a little cheaper it would make its way into my household as cheap regular, but at $1.17 a can and a punch of only 5.13, I’ll just take the Schaefer to be honest. Stop pretending to be an import! Maybe if I buy a case the price comes down…
QBCBC 1: Schaefer Punch=7.93
QBCBC 2: Budweiser Punch=6.25
QBCBC 3: Bud Light Punch=4.52
