NEGRA MODELO

Negra Modelo. Corona might be the biggest seller, but this is easily Mexico's best mainstream beer. 

It stands proudly in competition with any other moderately dark ale and might not always win, but you'll always remember it as being pretty good. It was first brewed by Austrian immigrants

It pours beautifully out of its stubby little bottle, always (I had to try five or six, just to check the consistency) delivering a nice, finger-deep head and the colour is rich and noice.

There's a deep, healthy initial hit of malt quickly followed by the bitterness of hops and it all combines to have a slightly tart taste that is just peachy on a hot summer's day.

It's a bit light on aroma, which is perhaps the biggest criticism I can make of it. Other than that, it goes well with Mexican food, oddly enough, and you should order it at any Mexican restaurant because it will almost certainy be the best beer on offer.

 

7/10
