I really liked this beer. I agree with mmm....beer about the Mexican water being scary somehow. This is one of the better cheap beers that I’ve had, and considering the price I would defiantley buy it again. The color is nice and dark and the flavor complimented by Mexican lunch combo #9 from the local Mexican place extremely well.

Mörkröd med liten krona. Doftar svagt av karamell. Smaken tunn, någon maltsötma. Eftersmaken kort. Lite kolsyra. Tämligen menlös, hade dock inte förväntat mig annat.

Aroma is sweet malty caramels. Taste is the same and I almost get angry when I think about it. Pretty hard bitterness in the end.

(Flasche) Es hat eine dunkelbraune Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit bräunlicher Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist karamellig, etwas oxidiert und süß. Der Geschmack ist röstig, sonst wie das Aroma. Zu viel CO2.

TorbenJensen (792) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2015
Negra Modelo is a reddish-brown, thick foamy beer with exciting rich aroma of caramel. The taste is light, values set for water, but with good rich caramel malt to follow. Hop bitterness is very discrete and anonymous, but it has been common to all Mexican beer. Negra Modelo is more generous malted than the other of the country’s beer I have tasted, makes it a more malty profile leaning closer to the European vienna, and perhaps especially Czech dark lagers. Malt sweetness prevails in this easy to drink and thirst-quenching beer, and I think it tastes great. A pleasant surprise from Mexico.

On tap at Milagro’s in Redwood City, CA. Malty with a thin backbone. This actually isn’t as bad as a lot of other commercial beers.

355 ml bottle into glass. Malt nose, quite sweet. Pours Ruby red with solid white head. Light body, malty sweet. Cornflakes sweet. Finish is less sweet but still sweet. Actually goes really well with the Mexican food I’m eating. Not sure I would drink it otherwise.
