Handcrafted in Mexico, the Dos-A-Rita combines two traditional Mexican favorites: the Margarita and Dos Equis Lager. Sweetened with 100% Agave Nectar, this great tasting blend of authentic margarita flavors and lager makes a perfectly balanced and satisfying combination. Serve cold over ice, it is the perfect compliment to a summer day or an interesting night.

Nose is a lemon lime bomb. Some salt. Taste is straight up margarita. Really really good for the beach and for summer.

This tastes much more like actual beer than the Bud Light version. This is by no means the same thing as saying it’s not stupid. It is slightly cloudy orange yellow in the glass w/ a small white head. It tastes like a cheap lager beer w/ a whole bunch of lime juice and sugar added. This might actually be pretty OK if it were not so sweet to be honest. The light bit of tartness seems pretty nice and does not completely overwhelm the beer taste. Overall, I’d say this stuff achieves what it aims to achieve but it is very definitely not a beer for nerds--this is both good and bad.

8 oz. can. It pours surprisingly like beer with a pale yellow/gold color and a fizzy white head. The aroma has lots of lime, hints of salt and margarita mix. There’s some hints of lager in there as well, at least a lot more than the Bud Light ber-ita line. The flavor is more lime and margarita mix. Very sweet and syrupy, but shockingly I do get some of the base lager underneath all that. Also, the agave gives a strong tequila impression that isn’t unwelcome in this kind of beverage... obviously. Not something that I would get with any regularity, but this seems to at least attempt at showing more beer-like qualities than some other similar products.

Pours a clear light yellow and has a distinct lime smell. Salty, lime taste. Not crisp so much as tangy. This is kind of what I expected. Not good, not bad. Just meh.

[6659-20140816] Tall can. Lemon lime fruity water aroma. Slightly hazy, pale yellow body with a quick foamy white head. Sweet lime and candied lemon flavour. Medium body. Wow. (5/3/4/2/6) 2.0

Overheard: "You can eat a little bit of glass, it’ll be OK." "It’ll pass." "...This too shall pass."

Another 7/11 tick. Out of the can. Smells like a sweet margarita. Taste follows, salt, lime, agave. Mostly sweet, not quiet to the point that’s it’s cloying, but close. Medium body, high boost. Go Iggles!

Really not as horrid as expected, though that ain’t saying much. Lots and lots of lime, and a little beer and alcohol underneath. It has it’s place...
