If I'm recalling correctly, Texas is the only state that requires the
"ale" designation for beer of a certain strength.

Incidentally, A-B argued in favor of changing the "ale" labeling law in
favor of allowing it to be used as a descriptive style/brewing method
designator, not as a marker of strength:

Other way around: A-B is trying to talk Modelo into selling A-B the
other half it doesn't already own.

Pity InBev doesn't have much of anything to do with them.

Oh - InBev is a Belgian company according to you? To me it is a
Brazilian-steered multinational...

The U.S. is for sale – and foreign investors are buying
The dollar's slump makes scooping up US businesses and real estate a
financial bargain.

The United States has become a bustling bargain basement for world
investors. Using excess dollars earned as a result of the massive US
trade deficit, foreigners are buying up big chunks of the nation's
businesses and properties. The latest shoppers: Abu Dhabi for New York's
Chrysler Building and a Belgian-Brazilian brewery for Anheuser-Busch.

Looks like it's considered "Belgian-Brazilian" to some.

In the USA, we see far more evidence of InBev's Belgian connections
than its Brazilian connections.  Where I live, Brahma lager is pretty
much non-existent, but there's no shortage of Stella Artois, Leffe,
and Hoegaarden.

Oddly enough, some of the Mexican beer makers have beer more toward
their German roots than does A-B.  Negra Modelo is one of the few mass
made Vienna style lagers available outside of Austria.  It is great with
spicy food too.

Negra Modelo is one of the few mass-made Vienna-style lagers, period.
The style has nearly disappeared from Austrian brewing.  Vienna's
remaining big production brewery, Ottakringer, markets a "Schnitt,"
which is sorta like an old-style Vienna lager, but is actually a blend
of their pale and dark lagers.  Their "Zwickl rot" is a red unfiltered
lager that is something like a rustic, yeasty version of a Vienna lager.

Otherwise, revivalist Vienna lagers are pretty much the domain of small
specialist brewers, particularly Vienna's Siebenstern and Salm brewpubs.
