This is a good mexican beer, I prefer Bohemia, but Negra Modelo is quite good when you can´t find bohemia.

On tap in a pint glass.

A- Bronze-it-brown color with a thin white head. No lacing. Bubbly.

S- Bready, roasted malt. "Toasted" scents of caramel, bread, malt.

T- Like the nose. Very malted with some molasses flavor.

M- It was drinkable and all, but crashed on the end. The sweet malts were just too much.

O- I may have enjoyed it more in a 12oz serving. Getting through 16oz of all those malted malty malts was challenging. It gave me a hop craving.

Not really what I was hoping to pair with my burrito... I need a darker and less watered down beer.

Disclaimer: I'm drinking this in Mexico so maybe that makes a difference? This has to be the best year round beer from Mexico (the best overall being Noche Buena). Deep roasty character with a good body. Goes well with most foods. A great alternative to all the "clear beers." For the price, not sure how you can ask more from a beer out of Mexico but beer snobs will be beer snobs and people on this site still don't rate to style, comparing everything to the best "big beers" they've had.

DATE TASTED: January 31, 2015... GLASSWARE: Warsteiner pokal... OCCASION: Penn State in its annual b-ball battle with Illinois... APPEARANCE: confident amber bronze body; fizzy white head settles to a thin yet creamy quarter-inch; mild effervescence... AROMA: biscuit and toasted bread; that toasted scent suggests roasted nuts and coffee beans... PALATE: slightly crunchy, but reasonably light despite its color; slick at the finish...TASTE: at odds with itself: caramel, toffee and earthy notes vie with cloying, gummy esters that leave a rather funky malt finish...OVERALL: better than its Especial, this provides a profile of sorts in a style normally relegated to pizza support--but the overt malt presence is marred by some plasticine irregularities...

Excellent dark lager with a substantial malt profile.
