Old favorite available at a Mexican restaurant near you.

A - Pours mahogany, 1 finger head, dissipates fast. Leaves little lacing.

S/T - Caramel, roasted toffee, and slight-minty hops.

M - Full-bodied, malt dominated, and is very smooth.

D - Fantastic. Could drink a six-pac on a hot day. Very underrated, underappreciated beer.

Not the best beer I have tasted, but it is an excellent beer that is smooth and tasty. It's far better than Corona and most American brews.

This is my favorite Mexican macro-brew. It's my go-to for any visit to either Tex-Mex or Gen-Mex places; goes well with both cuisines! It also beats the pants off just about every US macro-brew out there, for prices similar to those of BMC's "premium" and "light" offerings.

L: This beer is a nice, deep amber, similar to a well-steeped black tea. A proper pour provides a few fingers of rich, ivory head that dissipates somewhat slowly, leaving a nice lacing behind after a minute or so.

S: Malty as heck, and a bit sweet, but not at all in an offputting manner.

T: Also a bit sweet, with nice malty notes and just the right level of hop bitterness to balance the malty sweetness. As someone else mentioned recently -- this flavor really does remind me a bit of some of the less-sweet versions of kvass I've tried (namely, Bolshoy Kvass, Большой Квас) , but is far more boozy. There is a definite note of ethanol in the flavor, but again -- not too much.

F: Just right, for me. It has a nice viscosity, about like that of a good coffee (or tea) with cream.

A dark brown almost see through appearance with a slightly spiced bread smell. The flavor is light and watery,sweet bread like with a hint of hops at the end. This is an extremely drinkable beer that goes down very smooth. I hit the jackpot today with the past 2 I've tried. Next time your at a Mexican restaurant you've got to hope they have it to gulp down with your food or just start pounding them and wait for the mariochy band. The only thing I didn't like was the foil on the cap if you can look past that you might give it an A+ but I can't so a rock solid A it is.

This beer has it all: tastiness, low to moderate mouthfeel, gorgeous rich dark appearance, fresh smell. It’s wonderfully crafted and great all around. I’m a fan. When the fridge gets low or runs out it’s never long before I restock the Negra.

From the bottle in a glass. Pours a reddish-brown with a nice head that lasts. Smells of roasted nuts and chocolate. Tastes sweet and then bitter in a good balance like the aroma. Full bodied feel and slightly bitter going down. Overall my go-to beer in a Mexican restaurant.
