Served in a flute

A - It is dark amber colored with amber highlights. It is topped with an inch of beige head.

S - The aroma is sweet. It has some caramel and toffee.

T - The taste matches the smell. It is sweet caramel and toffee.

M - Moderate

O - This is one of the least offensive beers that I have had out of Mexico. It drinks easy and the taste is okay. I'd put it with Negro Modelo.

Typical chestnut brown color with reddish highlights, head is bubbly but nothing to speak of. Nose is similar to the original Negra Modelo but has an accent of herbs and maybe a hint of spicing as well.

The flavor here is, again, similar to the ordinary Negra but includes some additional complexities and nods towards the winter warmer style. Moderate herbal character adds something up front, and the finish, while still medicinally abrupt, is heightened by a very mild herbal note.

A little better than the original, and it comes in 12-packs which is kind of nice. Look for it at your local bodega.
