Negra Modelo


Seeing as this is the 5th of May I thought I’d review my favorite Mexican beer.  Negra Modelo is a quite common beer and you can find it in just about any store that sells beer.  It is brewed by Grupo Modelo in Mexico and is one of the oldest breweries in Mexico.

Negra Modelo is a dark beer with a medium brown, not amber, color.  It has a light hoppy smell with no earthy tones that you typically find in darker beers.  There is a clean even taste and texture to this beer.  It’s like the cream soda of beers.  Smooth and consistent taste are the best way to describe it, with a clean finish.  There is a hint of bitterness but it’s hardly noticeable and doesn’t interfere.  Negra is crisp and mild with an ever so slight smokiness.  The alcohol content is 6% so it makes this a fairly easy drinking beer to be enjoyed during any season.

I typically enjoy my Negra Modelo with a generous wedge of lime but it’s just as good without.  If you haven’t tried Negra Modelo you have no excuse not to.  It’s easy to obtain, and somewhat inexpensive at a little over a dollar per bottle.

    I love this beer also! I have both Negra Modelo and Modelo Especial on tap at my home… The only problem is that nobody seems to know what the co2 volume is in either one and it is critical in order to maintain the brewery fresh taste.

    Try this beer with lime wedge. I’m not talking about a garnish on a glass, but stuffed in the bottle (a la corona). Gives it an entirely different character… and probably prevents scurvy!

    I haven’t tried Negra Modelo I just like to fuck up poll results

    It’s good to see people still have a fucking sense of humor. Good shit. And I love Negra like life itself.

    Negra and Espcial are both great clean tasting beers. They are my favorite Mexican imports… Corona, XX, eat yer heart out.
