3.25/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured a ruddy brown, no haze at all. Off-white head formed and very slowly receded to lace. Smell is chocolate and caramel malts, hint of noble hops. Malty sweetness is very prevalent. The taste hits with chocolate malts at the beginning, then a bit of sweetness, and fades with a decent noble hop finish. Something isn't quite right with the hops, but I cannot put my finger on it. It isn't unpleasant, it's disconcerting; it's not right, but it isn't dead wrong, either. Just odd. Mouthfeel is smooth with a bit of dryness in the finish. Very drinkable. Will certainly wash down the dryest of chimichangas.

This is my go-to beer at Mexican restaurants that have things like Corona, Pacifico, Tecate, Dos Equis, etc. I prefer Negra Modelo to all of those. It's not craft beer, but isn't bad beer, either. It's a smooth, crisp, slightly caramel-flavored lager. The color in the glass is nice amber brown with virtually no head and moderate carbonation. The smell is slight (and slightly bad).

I've been drinking Negra Modelo (occasionally) for years, but had never bothered to write a review. I took a trip to Costa Rica recently and had Bavaria Dark which is the same style lager as Negra Modelo; I wanted to compare the two. Maybe the pleasantness of the vacation and lack of alternatives biased me in favor of Bavaria Dark, but I think it was better than Negra Modelo.

Grabbed a six of this the other day as i had some over Christmas at my cousins and decided to check into it a little further. 12 oz. bottle poured into a weizen glass. Dark carmel color about like strong iced tea with a 1/2 finger watery head that was gone in a squinit. Lacing was short lived and light. Smelled strongly of alchohol and malt much like md 20-20 back in the day. Taste was winey and somewhat watery and was gone quickly with a dry finish. Mouthfeel was decent and on the thin side with a moderate bite and not unpleasant mouth to nose aroma. Drinkability was ok but not what i was expecting. All in all not a bad beer but nothing i would sell the farm over. Drink some for yourself and you be the judge, but not worth $9.00 a six in my humble opinion.
