Pour: Pours dark brown with a nice beige colored head
Smell: Not very strong with a faint malty smell
Taste: Smooth and creamy. Sweet malty flavor with a hint of caramel. Slight hop bitterness to even it out nicely
Overall a nice beer which I would recommend. Great with mexican food - just hold the lime as there is no need for it.

Grabbed a 12 FL. OZ. bottle of this from a friend's fridge on Washington Avenue in St. Louis, MO. Poured from the bottle w/ a golden label & a NEGRA MODELO banner like the Miss America Sign on the front into a 16oz Snifter Glass. Does not have a freshness date due to the brewery.

Aroma- Has a rich, malty aroma. Tons of toasted malt also and clean to the nose. Above average...

Appearance- Pours a 2 Finger, bubbly head that has decent retention. Has a dark copper/medium brown colored body that is clear. Leaves suds behind but not much.

Flavor- Has a good amount of toasted malt and vienna malt tastes from the beginning. Can be compared to a brown ale at times but much cleaner and easier to drink. A slight caramel flavor comes across at the finish. Light-Medium Bitterness. .

Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, Medium Carbonation, Smooth, Crisp Finish, and has only clean malts that finish it up.

Overall Impression- Coming from this brewery, this is probably one of my favorites from them! If I'm ever @ a mexican/tex mex restaurant, this is my go to. Will be enjoying many more down the road.

Bottle poured into shaker pint glass

No expiration date

A:Two finger fast fading head, that completely disappears. No lacing. Beer is amber colored, and thin in appearance.

Smell: Malt, hops, apple cider, and bread

Taste: Apple Cider, biscuity, metal, This beer did not feel like something to really enjoy or celebrate.

M: Thin and watery

Overall: This is a beer that was endorsed by several friends. I disagree with their endorsement at this point. Truly, I don't think this beer is worth trying.

Been craving one of these bad boys for a while. Even on a cold day, this is really refreshing.

Drank one at a Mexican Restaurant to accompany my Fajitas, could not have made a better choice.

Bottle came with a slice of lime, which I quickly discarded. Didn't want to alter the flavor in any way.

Cold, smooth, no unexpected tastes. Refreshing
