Negra Modello (Mexico)
No website available
Mexican's most popular dark beer. A Vienna style beer - a dark in colour, light in body beer. This is a really popular beer within Mexico and also in the various countries that it is exported to.
On the nose the beer has the immediate hit of warm alcohol masking the malt tones. It has a very quickly disappearing off-white head sitting upon slightly cloudy brown liquid. On the tongue the alcohol is apparent immediately along with a honey sweetness but barely any bitterness. The beer has a very light body. Overall this is a very session able beer - a good all rounder with some good malt characters but still maintaining a very light body.
