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.

It is the best of the available mexican brews. That said it isn’t among the best vienna styles I have had.

Terrific beer. Nice with or without lime. Great with taco’s or just chillin’. Same price as about any beer on a menu, I get it at restaurants. Cool looking bottle, surprisgly dark. A good intro to darker beers that scores extra points for being 6%.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2003 Bottle: A beer from Mexico that can be considered a 'good' beer. A decent body and flavor, although both could be a bit more. Darkness is deceiving!

A light Ale (in taste, not color). Light body, good aftertaste. Probably the best Mexican beer that I have had.

Great mexican dark beer in the European style. A nice beer on a cold day. Silky mouthfeel, coffee and chocolatey aromas and flavors. The best Mexican beer by far.

Weak aroma, but what there is is not bad. Easily the best looking of the widely available Mexican beers. It is dark in color but oh so light in flavor. It is rather confusing. But it is incredibly easy to drink on those hot lawn mowing days. it is also less likely to go skunky in its dark bottles than most other mexican beers.

Not bad. Certianly one of the best Mexican beers. Has a very nice dark coppery color, but the aroma is rather weak. Has a watered down taste but a little bit of malt. It is smooth and while drinking it alone it is less that ideal, with a nice hot mexican meal I wouldnt mind another one of these.

Negra Modelo is a tricky beer. It tastes similar to Budweiser (weak, lack of hops, quick finish, etc.) but it looks like a dark beer. Mexican Vienna style beers, interesting thought

I went into the sampling of Negra Modelo with mixed expectations as this is one of the first beers I sampled AFTER reading the reviews. I can’t say that I disagree with the fact that this beer throws you for a loop when you try it out because based upon the color alone you are expecting something with a little more kick to it. I enjoyed this beer with my food, but I would rather have had a Dos Equis to compliment my Mexican cuisine.

I agree with The Beer God- this is the best Mexican beer. However, thats like saying Chi-Chi’s is the best Mexican restaurant. INS should be more worried about the beer comming across the border.
