Overall modelo negro is far better than most Mexican adjunct lagers I’ve had. This beer is a very dark amber color, darker than DosEquis Amber (a beer I would compare this too). The sip is a tad watery but still has more flavor than an average beer of this type. A bit more bitter than I expected It to be, the beer leaves a distinct aftertaste, one that isn’t all too appealing. Overall,a solid option to pair with spicy food at a Latin restaurant, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy this beer at a store.

One of the finest vienna/amber lagers that I have tasted. Flavorful & bold. Much better than the Modelo Especial imo. If you have not had this beer then you ought to go out and try it. It sports classy looking label art as well. No date on the bottle though. Cheers! B (85-89) score range

Medium tall, white head not persisting. No lacing. Amber clear. Medium-high aroma of malt, bready notes. Later bit of veggies in the end. Lightly toasted, medium sweet flavor. Moderately carbonated, smooth. Light palate. Light dry finish. Decent.

Got a bottle at The Taco Stand.
Nothing really special. Good with a spicy taco and a hot winter day.

Look: A clear, dark brown. White, short-lived head
Aroma: Rather complex. Slightly sweet, browned/dried fruit, raisin/fig
Taste: Strong raisin that's a little overpowering but enjoyable.
Feel: light/medium body that makes it easier to drink with the heavy raisin taste.
Overall: If I ever eat at a good Mexican restaurant I'll be looking for this beer. I can see it going really well with a rich meaty dish.

I've never had this style before so it's a bit hard to rate this per style but nonetheless this is a decent lager. Aroma is sweet and malty - some fig and a bit of fruitiness detected. Pours a copper red with decent head that dissipates quickly - carbonation is medium. Tastes like a light porter, easy to drink, smooth on the tongue - very little bittering hops. A decent beer and a great option at a Mexican restaurant over a watery Dos Equis.
