Having been away from beer for a long while I wanted to get back to drinking. I used to be a light beer drinker before so I wanted to try something new and by chance, and curiosity I ordered a negra modelo. ..wow! what a joy it was drinking that first bottle. When ever I can't find it I try other darks only to be left disappointed. Thanks to the Brewers of this fine beer I now have found my afternoon companion.

A- Very dark amber colored. Once you had a lime wedge inside the beer, it starts to cloud up from its torn pieces. Head was thick and creamy at first, but ultimately died to nothing.

S- Scent was of dark roasted barley malt and same type of spiciness. I also detected some kind of grainy, wet corn husk type scent. There is some type of undistinguishable bitterness going on here. It's not overpowering. There was a light kind of fruitiness even before I added a lime wedge. When the lime wedge is added, that is the only noticeable scent. The lime really masks the natural scent of the beer. So far it smells nice, but do not add lime I'd say. I doesn't smell like any Vienna lager I've ever had.

T- It was all those things in the scent before I added the lime wedge. I don't dislike the beer with the lime wedge, but you are almost drinking lime juice at this point. But the beer in general has a medium roasted barley malty flavor to it. A slight hop spice and grainy bitterness shows up as well. Also, there is a light biscuity note here. Finish is slightly sweet and of the roasted malts before it becomes semi-dry. It's not Bud Light dry for sure!

M- Nega Modelo is very crisp, clean, and extremely refreshing. Mouthfeel is light to medium, on the light side. It finishes on the watery side.

Overall this is a fine Mexican/Latin beer. I have not tried the Modelo Amber Ale yet, but I'd say the darker side of Modelo is the way to go. The flavors are easy to pull out and are not too over the top. Fine beer. It's simple. But that more my problem with the beer rather than that making the beer bad.
