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.

330ml bottle. Pours clear dark brown with no head. Very sweet and slightly yeasty aroma. Sweetness and malt. A mild bitterness but nowhere near enough to balance out the sweetness. Quite empty at the end and slightly over carbonated. Pretty disappointing.

Delicious and light for a darker look. Has a kind of fuzzy finish to it which goes quite well with the coffee overtones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From bottle (BB Mar.'18) in tulip. Pours reddish brown with fleeting white head and aroma of caramel with sour notes. Malty taste and finish ala the dunkels that inspired it--not sure why it's classed as a PL

One of the best commercial beers in México, good caramel flavour with an amber/dark color.

Great beer and great taste. How can people disqualify this beer. A great dark lager paired with a lime and your favorite Mexican dish...you just can't go wrong...

Great texture. Smooth taste. This and Michelobe Amberboch are my favorites. Yeungling just a tad behind the overall satisfaction. All 3 make me happy I drink Lagers.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Color is brown and clear with a small white head. Aroma is sweet and hops. Taste is sweet and some fruit nice and sweet aftertaste. A nice beer to homemade pizza ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2017 355ml bottle. Pours dark brown. Chocolate, cherry, toast, orange. Quite high carbonation. Decent.

Bottle from systembolaget. I just hate when this happens (and it happens a lot with macrolagers), you think 'yeh this one is decent, much better than the others', then 'ok well time to rate it', then you think too hard and it instantly tastes bad. Urgh. This was one such case. On the one hand it is very nice, like a good tmavy. On the other, the alcohol is a bit too prominent.
