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.

Last time I’ll ask Pablo for the recommendation, boring sweet thing, of mediocrity. It even gets down funky way too quickly. miss...

I definitely wouldn’t call this ’dark’ anything. It’s more like a less-paler version of a lager. Since they consider this a dark beer, I fell strange saying I liked it.

Dark? Yes. But on the label, they call it an ale (grin). Nope. It’s a light lager. A bit of malt, a bit of hops, a dab of sweetness, and a dab of flavor. Better than any American Macroswill, and one of the best beers I can think of for ’weaning’ any redneck who thinks MGD is ’great shit!’ If you are more of a real beer fan, this is no regret buying or drinking, but no regret never seeing again, either. Better than Corona, and that’s a compliment in itself. If you want to see what this beer is *trying* to taste like, find a place that has Dos Equis XX on draft, and try that - there ya go!

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2007 Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear dark amber. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, cereal), with light notes of metal shavings and chemicals. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. On the cusp of being drinkable. Among the macro Mexican offerings, Bohemia is your best bet, not this one (this is rated higher probably because of its use of darker malts).

A Vienna style from Mexico - who’d a thunk it? This is a beer that is best drunk cold and accompanied by food (Mexican or Italian).

About the best you can look forward to from Mexico, Negra Modelo is a bit darker than its counterparts, but still exhibits some evidence of thinness in the brew.

Seems like it’d be a decent summery alternative to Carona. Dark looking, but fairly watery nonetheless. A hoppy/malty hint provides the decent flavor. Enjoyable.

I actually drink this beer outside of Mexican restaurants. I like it in the summer, I find it refreshing and delicious with spicy food. My one complaint is that they put the foil over the top which makes it tough to drink out of the bottle. Otherwise this would be a perfect campfire beer. Also it’s a bit over-priced. Quite respectable though, I’d be interested to put it next to other Vienna Lagers.
