Poured into a pint.
Excellent clarity, a bright reddened amber color. Through a terribly rough pour - rougher than I poured my Nitro Milk Stout (in which the bottle tells you to pour roughly, straight down) - I get barely any head, which recedes immediately. Miniscule flecks of lace dot the glass.
Smells skunky. There's certainly some caramel/amber malt thrown in there, but it's likely more for color than flavor.
Tastes skunked too, despite the brown bottle. Minor sweetness, stale bread crusts, apparent alcohol flavor.
Crisp, with high carbonation. Sticky with a lingering bitter/skunky aftertaste.
Overall this is one of the better Mexican lagers, but still nothing to write home about. This is unfortunately much better with a lime.

Negra Modelo Dark is a red/brown with a generous beige head that quickly fades. There is no appreciable aroma. Unfortunately, the tongue follows the nose and there is no taste either. It's like drinking water, but at least with water, you may get a mineral taste. After it warms for a while, finally a little blah sweetness. That's it. Feel is light bodied with little carbonation, again, watery. There is insufficient taste to be considered drinkable.
Negra is a very weak, bland beer. Not worth ever trying again.

Served with a meal at Abuela's mexican resturaunt in KC. Had to request a non-frosted glass. Poured into a pint glass. I discarded the lime wedged onto the rim. Dark clear amber color. Hardly any head, no lace. Slight musty malt smell. Taste is salty with a touch of citrus. Light watery mouthfeel. Overall, my impression is, eh. I think I prefer Dos Equis Dark when eating Mexican food.
