Negra modelo is without a doubt my favorite Mexican Beer. Similar to Kilt lifter in look and feel its one of the few Mexican beers I've tried that i dont have to have a taco in my hand to enjoy. I thoroughly enjoy it and recommend it to all my friends when we go out for Mexican food.

Pours a mahogany color and crystal clear. Deep, dark and brilliant copper. Has a beige or off white head of creamy foam that fell pretty fast and left wet lace. It refreshes itself to a ring around the glass. The nose was malty and sweet with caramel and lots of bread. Touch of citrus over the top and faint lager yeast character to make it pretty attractive to the nose. It tastes pretty good. It's sweet and has some floral hops in the drink. But the lions share is a very smooth and flowing malt. It's not cloying and the sweetness is never out of hand. The lager character takes over in the after taste with that yeast and spice and the citrus keeps it lively and juicy.

This beer was a surprise. I have heard so much about how bad the mexican beers and I was prepared for awful. I even bought a lime . . . just in case. This drank deliciously. Exceptional color, exceptionally smooth and the sweetness is just what you want alongside a spicy dish of mexican or southwestern food. In fact the body of this beer was very well done. It wasn't watery, it wasn't thick . It was neutral if that makes any sense. Where I could criticize is that the sweetness flattens it a little. The citrus could have been a little more too. It had the faintest hop bitter to accentuate the finish but that was weak as well.

Pretty good overall.
