Tonight we are going south of the border. We are headed to Mexico for a Negra Modelo. I have had this beer time and time again, and I think it’s the gold wrapper that keeps me coming back. That, or its unique taste. It’s incredible, and I love a good dark beer that is drinkable like this Mexican brew. The beer is easy to find, and can be found in any grocery store. This beer is also very popular among the Mexican population.

The beer does have a nice presentation in the bottle. It’s got a gold and black label, and that foil over the cap is nice. It just looks nice, and makes me want to pop the top and pour this beer out. Bottoms up people!

In the Glass: In the glass, it’s dark, but doesn’t appear too thick. It’s got a nice amber color, almost black. It also has a small head, and fizzles in the glass like a flat cola. But that’s okay as I didn’t expect or want a thick beer. Mexico is hot… you can’t have a thick beer that far south.

Nose: The nose is smooth, and has an almost nutty note. I like that… nutty note. Anyway, it sticks around too and as I pull my nose from the glass I can still smell it. As I take a second whiff, it smells almost smokey, and somewhat dry. I don’t remember this beer being dry, but the nose begs to differ.

Flavor: This beer drinks extremely smooth, and goes down without any problems at all. For a beer this dark, you don’t expect it to be. There is subtle carbonation here, but not enough to cause concern. It doesn’t hang around that long, but we will get there with the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is pretty boring. There is hardly any carbonation in this brew, and it sits there and just begs to be swallowed. That’s what she said! Sorry, I had to. Anyway, the beer is weak on the tongue and slides down smooth. But the flavor picks up toward the back of the palate.

Aftertaste: The aftertaste is pretty weak. It doesn’t stick around for very long, yet leaves a subtle dryness on the top of your throat. That dryness sits there until I take another sip. I will take another sip, as this is a good beer… a good summer beer.

I am giving it a 3 because it’s so common. It’s good though. I will give it that.
