Poured from a bottle into a Sam Adam's Perfect Pint.
Appearance - brown and bubbly like soda; builds a creamy off-white head. Lacing is beautiful!
Smell - some stone fruit along with sweet candy malts.
Taste - expected more flavor based on the nose. A bit bland and light.
Feel - light body, very carbonated; comes off a bit watery.
Overall - revisiting this after discovering someone left three of these in my fridge. This is actually much better than I remember, but still only an average beer.

This seemed to be the beer of choice for the locals at teh resort I was staying at. It poured a dark amber color, but with real no head or lacing to account for. The smell was fairly malty. The taste was fairly malty with a little hint of hops, but nothing really noticeable. The taste kidn of reminded me of Corona a little bit, but maltier and more full-bodied. The mouthfeel was okay: full-bodied. Overall, this is a very drinkable beer. Smooth and refreshing, it was nice drinking these by the pool.

Negra Modelo pours a medium brown color w/ a fairly thin cocoa head. Almost zero carbonation or lacing on this brew. Smell is that of weak malt, caramel, and metal. Very watered down nose on this one. Taste is the same. It's not offensive, it's just not very good. Metallic aftertaste for sure. Decent beer when you're choosing between Corona and Dos Equis, but not in real world situations. Used to be my go to beer w/ Mexican food, but now I usually stick to something w/ a little more taste. Not recommended.

Poured a transparent brown with a white head.

The smell was sweet,yeasty and malty.

The taste is pretty much the same as the smell. There's plenty of malts, it also has a lager taste to it.

The mouth feel is light with medium carbonation.

Overall not too bad often the best beer at a mexican resteraunt,much better than corona.

Pours a clear dark copper, with a finger tall soapy head, leaves stucco lacing on the glass. Aroma is subdued, you gotta get your nose right down there before you can detect some lightly toasted malts and earthy tones, a bit of honey. The medium bottle was very smooth, almost slick, and tasted of toasty and sweet malts that were sufficiently sweet to stand up to my enchilladas. One of the few popular Mexican beers I've had that actually goes well with spicy Mexican food.

Pours a dark amber color with a small white head that dissapates almost instantly. Smell is lightly sweet malt, slightly fruity esters, and a diacetyl background. Taste is a clean graniness with a hint of buttery diacetyl, pretty standard mexican dark lager, better than corona (or corona clones) for sure, i would pick this if they didnt has dos equis. The mouthfeel is smooth and crisp with a high carbonation, and the drinkability is pretty high also.

poured medium brown, almost reminding me of root beer. good head, carbonation and not much left in lacing.
smell was mild, breif hints of chocolate, burnt wood and a hint of charcoal.
Taste was thin on the mouth, but not bad flavorwise. A bit reminiscient of a mild porter with slight twinges of chocolate and roastiness.
Not bad, but not good either
