This Is What I Drink: 76
Imported beers from Mexico slowly have become more and more the rage in the US and Negra Modelo has certainly jumped along that train. All in all, this is probably one of the better ones that I've had from Mexico. It's obviously different in that it's a darker lager and it is not enhanced by a lime like Corona or Tecate might be. This one is fine on it's own. It's a pretty uncomplicated beer, and has similar notes you'd expect from a lager. Fairly malty with not a whole lot of bitterness and maybe just slightly sweet. The stubby little bottle is always a unique twist and an eye-catcher. It's not an amazing beer by any means, but one of the better ones that we got for free on the tour.
