From carrefour. In Duvel glass. Playing KB Dark Side. Little body and aroma, not deep black. No trace of the coffee and-or dark chocolat typical of other black beers. Easy to drink, with little alcoholic effect.

Target was selling six-packs for $4.99 which seemed odd but legit. A lot of the appeal comes from the flashy gold label. Inside, a fairly average Mexican lager. Probably needs a lime in it to bring out the citrus notes/smell of most Mexican beers. Low carbonation, okay mouthfeel, leaves a sour aftertaste. Will drink if it's available, but for a whopping 170 calories per bottle, I'd save up for something a little better.

A once great beer that unfortunately got popular so its not given the proper time to brew and kicked out for distribution/demand quickly. also if stored warm on the shelf it loses a lot of its richness qualities.

Plus+ a relatively easy drinking dark beer option for day time drinking when hot and thirsty.

complements spicier Mexican food without being to filling.

Good but not great/worth trying if never tried and definitely better than the breweries Corona extra where a lime squished in is required.

First time drinking this beer. It's Cinco de Mayo so it felt right. Overall a nice, refreshing beer. Not heavy at all. Smooth and light, with a hint of a hoppy aftertaste. There is an aftertaste that hangs around afterwards. Nothing that won't stop me from getting this again.

This beer has it all: tastiness, low to moderate mouthfeel, gorgeous rich dark appearance, fresh smell. It’s wonderfully crafted and great all around. I’m a fan. When the fridge gets low or runs out it’s never long before I restock the Negra.

Once served I grabbed the lime and tossed it - wiped the glass. Perfect copper color with off white foam and lacing. Subtle smell of lager goodness and sweet bread. Taste is sweet bread and molasses with a touch of hops to create a dry finish. A bit of fine carbonation and slickness. This is a very fine lager - give it a try!

Not a bad brew to have with Mexican food. A hint of syrupy sweetness helps balance the spicy flavors of the food. However, there is an aftertaste that makes it tough for me to get through.

The prune juice of beers. In more ways than one.

It's pretty decent I guess for what it is. At a Mexican restaurant with limited choices this can do the trick.

A watery, dark lager; but more taste than most. Nothing special, but decent to session when you're low on cash.

Light brownish-red body; thick, foamy head; Fruity, caramel aroma; nutty. Bitter taste offset with a mild, toasted grain sweetness. Primarily light bodied; smooth with a mildly bittersweet finish.

A respectable, decent tasting brew. I generally find it offered at most Mexican restaurants and becomes my go-to brew for such occasions. It offers enough roasted grain character and warmth with a complementary hop bitterness to make it stand out over most commonly offered Mexican brewery offerings.

Pours a dark,brown, clear color with a very small foamy head from a tap. Head retention and lacing are minimal at best. Dark malty aroma. Hints of nuts and caramel (maybe). Slightly sweet taste with heavier malts, nutty and slight caramel. Not much of a hoppy bitterness. It is a good beer to try if you are looking to go from crap to craft, but not a beer craft lovers would consistently buy. Maybe as a cheaper beer to bring to parties instead of the mass produced adjuvant lagers.

OK, not a winner. But I try to represent in every style. As far as Mexican macros (is there a Mexican anything else? Sincerely, let me know!) it's better than Pacifico, Corona, etc. Be at the beach or you'll be disappointed
