Best south of the border beer I’ve tried. Nice vienna ripoff.

Sweet, thick beer. Goes well with a spicy barbeque, but not the best dark ale I’ve had. Probably one of the best of Mexico. Nice appearance, but is weaker than one would expect.

This is listed as a black ale... I love black ale’s.... this, my friend, is no black ale. This is a lager. It’s good for a lager, I was just disappointed at the thick, black, Mexican goodness I had set myself up for. It’s a good base and tastes like some of my favorite lagers, only a bit more bland/watered down... if they’d try a bit of a bolder statement, they might be on to something here.

Dark and nearly noseless. Nothing offensive here. Nothing to get excited over either. It will put out the fire of a habenero pepper better than the usual skunky Mexican Lagers.

An average beer. Has a nose that is rather boring. Flavor is far from complex, but has a has a nice smooth feeling for a dark beer. Good for a meal, but nothing special on its own.

Re-Rate 10/01/02 The first time I had ’Negra Modelo’, was my first trip to Warez, which was my first weekend at ’Fort Bliss’, in El Paso Texas. I liked it then, and I still like it, while my taste has changed more often than ’Venom will change diapers the next few years’, it still is a semi-regular in my ’DBF’. Deep garnet in color, the head is light chocolate, but dissipates a bit quickly, the lace is adequate. Nose is malt, light hints of caramel. The front is sweet, the top is light, the finish is moderately carbonated, dry, lightly hopped, but a very drinkable beer, and it does go good with the spicy food in the country of origin, and I don’t mean that ’Olde Gringo’ stuff. Ranks #907 on my current 1000 beer master list.

Copper color, sweet malty aroma, caremel malty flavor.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 30, 2002
Medium dark amber under a small short lasting light beige head. Faint metallic and grainy sour with hint of sweet pumpking aroma. More nectar fruit emerges as it warms. Medium smooth soft low carb body. Sweet malt and lighter bitter flavours. Finnish is mild bland bitter sweet. Pleasant enough but lack overall character for a Vienna.

Ungstrup (29277) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2002
An amber beer with no head at all. It has an aroma of sweet oranges and some spices I can’t tell, it makes me think a little of a sodapop. It has a very tame mouthfeel - with some bubbles forming on the tongue. It tastes sweet and pretty citric - and the citric taste lingers and turns slightly bitter. Not a beer for me - at least not on a chilly danish fall night. Maybe it’s better for a hot day in Mexico?
