Where to Dig Up More About This Beer

Postmortem Brew Review
Reddish tinged but mostly deep brown in color. 
Malty, grainy smell.
One finger tan colored head that is tightly bubbled.
Leaves spotty lacing of the glass. 
Creamy and sweet flavor.
Active carbonation.
Light to medium in mouth feel.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Happy Cinco de Mayo!  The next several reviews are from a "Tour de Mexico" offering from World of Beer.  The first up in the bucket of five, Negra Modelo.  I have had this before and remembered it was uniquely different from most Mexican beer, in that it was not a 'yellow' beer.  Negra Modelo has a deep brown color that you do not find in many "south of the border" beers. Even the bottle is brown!

Boldly different and more flavorful, this is a good malty choice to start with on this 5th of May.  For you history buffs; while Cinco de Mayo is the most important national day of celebration in Mexico, it is not their day of independence.  It commemorates the Mexican army's beat down of the French army at Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.
