Used to really dig this on mexican beer night at the Deer Park in DE. It seemed to work then. Only $2 a bottle and all. Now, it no longer really holds a place in my heart. Pretty thin and boring but drinkable.

Boring and watery. The fact that this is rated as the Corona Breweries’ best beer speaks volumes about their abominable swill.

(12 oz bottle/shaker) Medium burnt red pour with little head that leaves a very spaced lacing. Light tastes of roasted malt and a touch of honey. It was better than i expected but, not worth the price.

Light brown pour with small tan head that fades quickly. Aroma of caramel malt and light on the hops. Little bit of roastiness in the flavor, but needs a little more hops. Definitely one of the better Mexican beers, good with chips and salsa or sun and sand.

Bottle pours hazy brown with tan head. Aroma-toasted grain with a hint of butterscotch
Flavor-Semi sweet roast malt that is really smooth. Medium mouthfeel

The aroma is spot on for a Vienna lager, highest marks here, Appearence is also solid. Pretty good beer over all, but some carmel flaovrs are out of style reducing ranking. Vienna malt sourness, and low melanoidans.... Beer could use a little extra hopping to balance finish which is on the sweet side....Again, nice malt aroma!

Pours a fairly dark brown color. Aroma is a little roasty and of caramel. Flavor is slightly sweet with a bit of a mellow roasted bitterness.

Very slightly above average. Good enough when eating tex-mex. Nice toffee notes. Slight fruitiness. Light roasted malt flavor.

This one should be called Cupric Mediocre instead of Negra Modelo. Copper colored, with some malt, toffee, and parsley in the aroma. The taste was uninspiring, with some fruit, toffee, and a very dry, boring finish. This one was as non-complex as one of Mike Tyson’s sentences.
