tmoreau (4583) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2017
12 oz. bottle poured to a shaker at Uncle Julio’s Mexican Restaurant in Lombard/Oakbrook, IL. displaying a clear, brownish amber color, with a presentable layer of off white/light tan froth, and foamy dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was malty, with a touch of caramel sweetness, toasted, with a hint of cocoa. Light to medium bodied, with fair carbonation, and subtle creaminess to the mouthfeel, the taste was similar, adding some low, earthy bitterness. Crisp, clean, and a good complement to the food. smaynard6000 (1224) - Apopka, Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2017
Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with minimal tan head. Subtle aroma of caramel malt. Mostly sweet with a touch of bitterness to balance. Light bodied. Not bad. roflorence (111) - South Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 4, 2017
Clear, coppery/brown colour in the glass. Crisp malty biscuit aroma and flavour. Slightly metallic in the aftertaste. Very refreshing on a warm day. meccahh69lol (319) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - MAY 4, 2017
Here we have a long-standing classic that was probably my first step towards drinking beer for pleasure (as opposed to solely as a means of getting wasted) back in the day. It still holds up as a solid entry for what it is. It pours a nice reddish amber with a relatively thin head. The aroma is fairly middling, papery, oaty, neither good or bad really. The taste is a solid smooth pleasant mix of mild malty roundness with a slight yakky pale lager aftertaste. It is a great spicy food beer and always pairs well with mexican (duh) and asian foods. Good for an almost Cinco de Mayo pre-gaming for a free 2001 a Space Odyssey screening while your boo boo pops the popcorn. HourGlass13 (1009) - North Carolina, USA - APR 29, 2017
Pours up a clear redish brown with an off-white head. The aroma is clean and crisp. The taste is a light with a bit of malts, some mild caramel. Good beer to be readily available, with a pleasant flavor. Do not expect it to be craft beer, Negra Modelo is a solid Euro style dark beer.
