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.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2005 By far the best mexican beer. Very tasty all the way to the bottom of the bottle.

My favorite Mexican beer, but this really isn’t saying much. Fairly faint sweet malty aroma. the taste shares the maltiness, but there’s also a germanic hops bitterness. It’s dirty brown, and lightly carbonated.

Easily the best Mexican beer I’ve had; smooth, medium-to-strong flavored and tasty! Feb 2002 rerate: another beer that has suffered over a year of highbrow drinking. I find the body and character to be rather lacking now; not enough malt in the balance and a bit thin. Still, compared to Corona....

My favorite Mexican beer, although its body and flavor don’t match its color. It’s also a great ingredient in a bean or vegetable soup.

Definately not a true dark. It’s about what I expected, a beer that you should drink in cancun on spring break because it’ll take too long to get drunk on tecate, corona, or pacifico. There are too many good beers available in America to waste time drinking it here.

I was actually kind of disappointed with this one. Definately, it was not as heavy and robust as I hoped it to be. I have heard people compare this to Guinness, but without a doubt, Negra Modelo is much lighter and less tasty.

I haven’t tried the light counterpart to this one as others talk about, but as far as amber beers go this is above average. Last thing I had was Shiner ’Bock’ and at least with food this one is better tasting. Initial smell is clean, the taste light and a bit like Newcastle but smoother---not necessarily in a good way, though. It disappeared quickly on the palate, similar to the aforementioned Shiner. It was refreshing, and good with Mexican food. I won’t go out and buy it just to drink, though.

better than his lighter counterpart, the dark version of modelo is rich and enjoyable for a mexican beer.

It’s a clear reddish-brown color, probably best compared to Newcastle, with light carbonation, and an initially impressive off-white head formation. The aroma is not too dominant but certainly comes out a little more than I would have expected. It offers something sweetish with clean malt, hinting at toffee, and fruitiness, while there are also lightly dressed indications of herbs and pepper spice from the hops. Initial flavors reconfirm the light malt as well as some interesting fruit esters and clove like herbs. There’s some bitterness and grainy dryness providing a delicate balancing role throughout while a little more herb and refreshing dryness adds to the finish. What was initially intended to be a quick refreshing beer certainly provided something a little more to savor, with a satisfying lingering aftertaste.
