COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dark vienna-munich type beer has had extraordinary acceptance in international markets. Exports to the U.S. began in the early 80´s, and have since attained great success in Europe, Australia, Central and South America.

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.

joshpiledean (316) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 23, 2005
Clear deep cedar color, small head, lots of carbonation. Boring bland aroma, and flavor to match. Sweet malt, but not much going on here, pretty boring.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2005
Dark copper in color but not very attractive. A slight hint of fruity malt/roast in the aroma with other hints of band-aid, popped acne, salt and water. Awfully sweet with a vague chocolate, fruit taste and hints of dirty mop water. Yuck.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2005
Well-made macro. I love the lightly roasted flavor with salsas and guac. Neither complex nor demanding, thank god. Every once in a while I just need to drink a beer and not reinvent the wheel.

MillStreetMan (152) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2005
Certainly one of the best available beers in Mexico, as it is flavourful and not too heavy - perfect for beach consumption. Dark amber and sweetly malty. All I drink (when available) in Mexico.

zathrus13 (1763) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - JAN 17, 2005
Dark brown/amber, with a tan head. Aromas of sweet malt and brown sugar. Flavor is much like the aroma, sweet malt and brown sugar. Body is medium to thin. Not bad, but $7.50 a six pack makes it too expensive for the taste.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - JAN 9, 2005
Bottle - malty sweet aroma with a little must. Very pretty copper/bronze color. Smallish off-white head that fights and hangs on. Same sweetness in the flavor. Almost a hint of rye in there somewhere. Slight fizziness. I remember 15 or so years ago that I saw an article calling this the world’s best beer. I certainly wouldn’t agree with that, but it’s better than I remember. Not bad - a nice surprise!

another recent from my brother in law who’s just discovered it. I just discovered that I’d never rated it. Another one we drink during Mexican jaunts. It’s just especial with toasted malt. Nothing to write home about. Reminds me of Michelob Dark.
