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.

Why do restaurants ruin this with a lime wedge in the opening? A big roasted barley and caramel flavor creeps through this one. It's a little thinner than expected, but a good beer nonetheless.

This really is a fairly decent beer. Their is not much aroma, but it is fairly malty for a Mexican made beer.

The first one goes done smooth, better than Corona but I can't drink more than one. Maybe it is the 36 degree C heat.

Very unique, caramel/brown-sugary flavor. Nice carbonation balace, but mouthfeel is too watery. Nice, but not great by any means.

Dark red color. caramel in the aroma. Smooth flavor with a malty feel. One of the more solid Mexican beers out there.

As a general rule, there's only one day a year that I drink Mexican beer, Cinco DeMayo. And the only Mexican beer I voluntarily drink is Negra Modelo. With that said, on to the review. Slightly darker than amber color. Typical Mexican lager taste, with a slight hint of the darker malts. Head was nothing to speak of. Same for hops.

Dark garnet red color body with quickly disappearing head. Has distinct Mexican beer bouquet...I cant really localize it, though. Palate has a very good body, with very mild carbonation. Not too sure what I taste. Beer does not seem overly hoppy, and the finish is good without bitterness or ethanol flavor. I think it's a pretty good social drink.

I had made the comment earlier that the only good alcohol to come out of Mexico is tequilla. Well, that may not be totally true after trying this brew. Now it was not great but good. The flavor was good with some chocolatey notes, and a bit of a sweet finish. I cannot comment on the color because as I drank this in a real Mexican resturant, they served it to me in a yellow water glass. I still liked it though.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2004 The best Mexican beer Ive had to date. Aroma is of caramel and very similar to the aroma of many brown ales Ive had. Appearance is a transparent brown. Flavor is smooth and malty with some hints of caramel and chocolate. Good beer. This would be my Cinco De Mayo beer of choice while all the other clowns at the restaurant get Corona and act cool when they stick their thumb in the bottle and turn it upside to get the lime to go to the bottom? Why do people do that anyway??!!

I'm amazed that such a dark beer has such little flavor. When it first hits your tongue it has some taste, but after that, nothing. The best things about this beer are the bottle and the way it looks in the glass. It's better than Dos Equis though. Maybe I just don't like viennas.
