On draft into a standard pint glass on 5/27/2013.

Appearance: Clear, medium/dark brown, very little foam.

Aroma: The smell is dominated by roasted malt. It is pretty simple.

Taste: Sweet malts, very little bitterness, and less roasted flavor than the aroma suggests.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is very light with good carbonation.

Overall: Negra Modelo is pretty good for what it is--typically the best beer on draft at the Mexican restaurants near my house.

bottle to a goblet

A: Dark brown and beautiful red in more intense light. bubbly head dissipates quickly to a thin splotchy film on the surface and around the edge of the glass.

S: smells like it looks. dark and heavy smell of roastiness and chocolate

T: sweet chocolate from first sip through to the finish. roasty and warming

M: strange combination. almost watery but there's a chewiness and lasting, resinous mouthfeel as well.

O: I've had this beer many times at Mexican restaurants. and really, it's perfect with that food, the chocolatey sweetness perfectly complements the spices. standing alone I feel it lacks complexity and body. but it is definitely drinkable and a good beer.
