Beer of The Week

Negro Modelo

fles_negra

Country: Mexico

Alcohol %: 5.3%

Negro Modelo is another Mexican beer brewed by Grupo Modelo . As the name would suggest it is a dark beer or as expressed in Mexico “Oscura”

This beer has much more body than the “Clara” lagers of Mexico and finishes with a medium to strong malt aftertaste.

The bottle itself summons a sense of grandeur, it is a stubbier bottle than most and is tinted dark with a golden foil sealing the opening.

I would suggest this beer to even the most picky of connoisseurs as its body carries well and finishes strong leaving you wanting for more.

My rating 4.5/5

  1. Where do you find this in the USA? World Market?

    I’ve tried to become “worldly” in my drinking habits…but so far the wine has always attracted me more than beer 🙂

    Maybe I’ll give this a go!

  2. I have been a pint of beer drinking woman for 37 years it’s a good hobbie to have, nice one xxx

  3. I remember the first time I had Modelo! The bottle was odd to me, but I enjoyed it a lot. I’m glad to see you featured it. However, Sol will always be my favorite Mexican beer 🙂
