“It’s a beer called Indio. You can’t get it in the States. It actually has the most crisp, refreshing flavor for that type of lager. It’s unique.”

“Negro Modelo. The folks at La Tropicana recommended it, and it was tasty.”

Negra Modelo, I would say. http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/75/667/This is just to prove that I'm saying it correctly. I had an argument with Ubermime about it, because I didn't think it could be negra due to adjective/noun gender agreement, but I was wrong.

Sol, Leon, Victoria, Pacifico and Modelo Especial. All great Mexican beers. The only ones I think you can't find locally is Victoria and Leon. You can get Sol in KC.

Except Negra Modelo, which is the best Wiener Alt you can get in Kansas, as the Austrians don't send us any 'Vienna (dark) Ale.'

Tecate Light con sal y limon. after a long day in the oil fields in 120F weather, that was my evening staple back in the day.

jonas - I looked at that web address and I see what you mean. I thought also that Negra and Modelo did not go together for the reason you mentioned. But, looking at the name of the producer of the beer, it is Grupo Modelo S. A. and the beer is their Negra type of beer. So the modelo is not really an adjective, it is the makers name. Hence the a and o endings. If they called that particular beer their Black Model, it would be Modela Negra. feminine because cerveza is feminine :o) ask Ubermime if I am correct.

ms_c, If I'm on the floor ordering more tequila, I'm inclined to think I wouldn't be real choosey about the state of the floor. Luckily, age has made me wise enough to forgo that much tequila! However, the hubby had a birthday yesterday, and sadly, age has not made me wise enough to know when to say "Enough!" to the chocolate-espresso-fudge cake.

Boulevard Wheat and a taco. Does that count? or maybe margaritas made with beer in them.

sunny sue - would it depend on what floor that is? I, myself, would be rather choosey about floors.

Mrs. C: No need to ask. Such was what was explained to me, and leaves me bitter to this day.

What a timely question. I just rediscovered Negra Modelo about a week ago. Good Beer.

I should have been more specific and said Dos XX amber lager. The green bottle stuff doesn't do anything for me.
