Bottle. Pours a dark brown with reddish hints and a thin tan head. Very mild aroma of caramel and some bready malt. Served too warm (cellar temp) and the flaws of this macro were evident. Taste of alcohol and cardboard malt. Still my favorite Mexican beer. NosirIwont (2514) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2005
Bottle. With a name like ’Negra’, you’d expect a considerably darker beer than the brownish amber colour it has to show (at least I did). Head is... well, who knows - it disappeared before I noticed the colour. Aroma is sweetish with caramel and fruity notes. Flavour is mostly fruity; except for the lack of alcohol, this fruitiness actually resembles that of a far stronger beer. With that said, it is actually a bit of a disappointment as a stronger beer would have more body, which this lacks - it’s pretty thin. Other bad things includes metallic notes and too much carbonation. It’s really not that bad a beer (on the medium side), but all in all it just promises way more than it can keep, and in Danish we would call it a ’narrefisse’. fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - JUL 14, 2005
This was the first Mexican beer that I can rember actually liking. Definitley the best choice in the mexican restaurante I ate in today. BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Better than most mexican beers, I enjoyed this with some spicy foods. I kind of wish it had more body to it.. overall its kind of thin and watery. roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Pours a deep brown color with a miniscule amount of fizzy white head. Aroma is slightly malty and caramely, but not much else going on. Very light and watery without much in the way of flavor. I agree with the comment below that its good for spicey foods, but not much else.

Bottle. Pours a deep brown with a moderate light tan head. Nice malt flavor with some caramel sweetness. Tastes a bit "light" given its coloring, but a pleasant beer to enjoy with some spicy Mexican food. BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 10, 2005
Bottle; Looks amber in color, average sized, off-white head. Good lacing. Malty aroma, grain/hay. Light taste of lemon. Light and watery body. bb (9241) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 8, 2005
Bottle. Very dark amber beer with a good head. Not much aroma. Some citrus tones to go with a hint of malt in the flavor. Light and easy to drink without too many off flavors. theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 8, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2005 Bottle. This beer gets way too much credit, generally by people that confuse "dark" with "bitter" or "flavorful" or "strong." Some flavors of roasted grain and caramel, but comes off as watery and boring. If you’re gonna drink Mexican go with Dos Equis Amber, or better yet, water. stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2005
pours dark with a little head, tastes smoked (im not a big fan of smoked beer) and a little watery for the body, making it smooth, has a good smell though, this is drinkable.
