COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First brewed in Tacuba, Mexico in 1925, Modelo Negra, formerly Negra Modelo, is a medium-bodied lager with slow-roasted caramel malts brewed for a rich, smooth taste. Brewed longer to enhance its flavors, Modelo Negra redefines "Dark Beer" because it is exceptionally drinkable and remarkably smooth. This Munich Dunkel-style Lager is brewed with galena and super galena hops as well as caramel malt, black malt and two and six row malt barley. These ingredients are meticulously brewed together to give Modelo Negra that bright, rich, amber hue and that iconic, medium-bodied flavor.

Bottle. Little more malt and hops than Corona, otherwise, similar problems--Watery flavor, weak aroma, little hops.

Bottle. Decent head, amber in color. Seemingly better than the Dos Equis. Body is medium. Generally malty, some hops in the mix.

My favorite Mexican beer on a hot day. Nice coloring with mild flavors. Good with light food.

A very good tasting dark beer. A pretty good buy, tastes like a dark corona. Very good aftertaste.

hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2004
I was at a friends playing poker last night, and the choices of beer was either this, corona or Stella. Poured a darkish brownish color with an averaged sized head. Aroma and tastes of light caramel. Lightly sweet. Light bitter finish. Nothing special.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2004 well, i was quite drunk overall during my tasting, but the gold foil wrappings can be shaped over a tooth for a faux bling appeal---- Just had second tasting (sober)... pours deep amber with average head, a fizzy and slightly watery mouthful.

This has got to be my favorite easy to get beer when eating Mexican. Slight but pleasant malty aroma. Pours dark brown with a nice tan head. Flavor is a good match for spicy foods. The mouth feel could be thicker, but overall a good beer.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2005 I drink this from time to time when I’m at a Mexican joint. It’s malty so goes well with spicy hearty foods and while a little thin it still drinks well.

Definitely not a Mexican beer to be passed up. Try this one before you grab that Corona next time! :) Nice thick mouthfeel, with little head, good balance of malt and hops however the hops comes out on top for flavor. With the addition of a lime wedge it brightens up the darker flavors of this beer. Very nice, recommended.
