bottled: had this one last night for the thousandth time....its okay if there is nothing else to drink and your having good or bad mexican food. your basic lager with some color added, slight malt aroma and flavor, crisp and clean, sparkling in the mouth. try it without the lime to see what it really tastes like and always choose this or dos equis amber over that corona piss.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours amber/brown with a nice head. Aroma is slight; a little sweet, roasted. Flavor is mild but nice. Slightly sweet roasted malt and a little caramel. A very small hop finish in an attempt to make a balanced, well-rounded brew. Doesn't quite make it, but is better than most Mexican macros.

A great mexican beer, but not after a big meal. Don't make the same mistake I did, much too filling to be a good beer shortly after a big meal.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber color, decent head that lasts for a little while, but not long enough. The sweetness that is very slight gives the beer a balanced taste. I'm actually rather suprised that this beer is pleasent.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice amber color with a bubbly dark cream colored head. Aromas of nuts and cabbage. Interesting flavor, Tastes like Kentucky Whiskey in seltzer. Quite fizzy in feel. I like it in a strange way. Maybe its because I like JD. I have a temptation to pour over ice.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(12oz bottle) Pours a large, white frothy head and a pleasant brown-amber body. Nose of a sweet, tinny milk. Nice caramel and roasted malt flavour. Not much there... too thin... but better than anything else I've yet sampled from Mexico.

Bottle in Arivaca, Arizona. Nice happy hour brew - way better than wife's draft bud.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The Negra Modelo poured a reddish copper with an off-white head that quickly dissipated to a thin layer and had some lacing. The aroma is of slightly roasted malt with hints of caramel and chocolate and a little citrus. It had a pretty mild flavor with a medium body. The taste is nutty, caramel malts up front with a slight bitter / acidic finish. Overall, it's much better than the other Mexican beers I've had, but still a little "off" compared to a quality microbrew. It kind of reminds me of a Fat Tire.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Malt and Water seemingly blended poorly. All the malt in the aroma, all the water in the taste. Slightly below average, which makes it as good as any Mexican beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Probably my favorite of the commercially produced Mexican beers. I like the malt flavor and the slight hop bite.
