Negra Modelo

Cerveceria Modelo, S.A.

Mexico

Disappointing to me; not the taste, but the fact that, despite the fact that I live in Texas, and have a smattering of Spanish, I still don't understand why the adjective and noun aren't in the same "sex". Adjective and noun should both be "male" or "female" in the Spanish language, so those of you who read this and are more adept than I can interpret. Anyway, this brew far surpasses their flagship beer, Corona, which is simply Sweaty Urine in a bottle. On the other hand, Negra Modelo is a well thought out beer. Dark, hoppy, European in character. My wife and I enjoyed this at our anniversary dinner with an exceptional plate of pork enchiladas con chipotle sauce. I had two: the first without a lime wedge, the second with. If you order this at a restaurant, tell them to hold the lime wedge. Bleah.
