Used to drink this a lot while living in Mexico, as a regular session beer. Corona and alike really can be just drunk as michelada.
Brown rubi color with a 3 finger head with medium retention.
Aroma of toasted malts and earthy notes.
Flavor of slightly toasted malts, mild condiments and earthy hops. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with good carbonation.
Decent beer, flavorful with good drinkability. Nevertheless, all depends on purpose and to what you compare this to.

2.91/5  rDev -12.9%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Appearance: It has a nice clear deep copper/amber color to it. It has a thin white head that dies down fast and leaves next to no lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of sweet roasty/toasty malts, caramel and a slight nuttiness.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some roasty malts with some sweet caramel and some nuttiness. Not a whole lot going on here.

Mouthfeel: It has a med/high carbonation with a light overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with decent flavors and aromas.

I bought a 12 pack when I couldn't find any other dark beers at a local super market. I've had Negra Modelo before and thought it was OK. Not great, but better than the many no taste beers out there. Worth buying in a pinch (or when in a supermarket...).

As I was drinking one of the beers, I felt something go into my mouth that shouldn't be there, I immediately spit the beer back into the bottle and pored it out on my plate. I felt that I had swallowed some of whatever it was and wanted to see if I got any of it back in the bottle.

It was fly larvae. Almost fully formed. I put the larvae in a baggie and kept the bottle. the next morning the baggie was buzzing with a newly hatched fly. Disgusting.

I will never, ever drink this filthy beer again and can only imaging how filthy the bottling plant must be to allow live fly larvae in a bottle. I was then, and still am, grossed out every time I take a drink from a bottle.

If I could give this disgusting beer a negative rating, I would.
