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.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - OCT 10, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2004 Probably my favorite mass-produced beer brewed in Mexico. Slight caramel flavor from the malts, average mouthfeel. Some bottles are metallic in flavor. Inconsistent; best when served cold.

Orange-amber body with tons of carbonation and a ripply whitish head. Leathery malt and herbal aroma. Cherry malt flavor, moderate sweetness, and low bitterness. Fizzy, medium-bodied beer. My beer of choice with Chile Rellenos.

Negra Modelo pours a transparent burnt amber color with a minimal head. The aroma is mostly of caramel and malts, with a touch of hops, but just a touch. The taste is very clean, with a surprisingly rich caramel profile. The roastiness of the malts is evident, and the hops finish the taste quite nicely. Not much is left on the finish, and the aftertatse is just a slight earthy grainiess. The mouthfeel is typical lager, not thin but not robust. The carbonation is a bit harsh on the palate as well.

GEOBRAU (188) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - SEP 28, 2003
No head, slight lacing on the glass. Malty nose, leading to a toffee-vanilla sweet finish. A Vienna style beer from Mexico. Putting a lime in this beer would make no sense as there is no skunk to cover up. Come on people, this is ONLY a Mexican beer because it is made in Mexico. in acuallity it is one of the few remaining Vienna style beers commercialy available. Very drinkable, sweet beer.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Pours a dark mahogany, with lots of carbonation and head that dissipates quickly. Nice fruit nose, slightly sweet. Very smooth, and very light flavors, not a lot of body to this beer. Fruity aftertaste.

thehoff (598) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 16, 2003
Suprising for a Mexican beer. I like it. Red brown color, no head at all, very few bubbles. Different flavor from anything else I've had before and can't place it. This is the first mexican beer I have had that doesn't require fruit.

guzzler67 (1696) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 16, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2009 Dark amber appearance with an average sized head. Subtle, caramel malt aroma failed to leave any impression. Watered down, artificially sweet, cola-like taste. Light bodied with a lot of carbonation. Short lived finish.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 5, 2003
Has a darkish brown color with some carbonation and a malted smell. Taste is of some slightly roasted malted and finishes with a slight bitterness. Overall it is one of the better Mexican beers, but that isn't saying much...

A bit darker than your other mexican beers. Try this next time you order a burrito, it's got better hop and malt flavor than the typical mexican beer.
