COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dos Equis Amber is a rich, full-bodied Mexican import with a reddish-gold color and is made from the finest ingredients, representing the brand’s traditional Mexican heritage. The history of Dos Equis Amber is traced to the development of the popular Oktoberfest-style of Vienna lager originally created during the mid-19th century.

Well I wouldn't really call this one amber style. It has a bit more taste than their special but not much

This is a very attractive beer as far as color, but it lacks the aroma and taste to be better. Personally I like the XX Special (green bottle) better. Like most of the Mexican beers, it tastes great with lime.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2005 Jan, 2003:After Billy had unwrapped the brown paper parcel he decided to lay down for a nap. It rained a lot that day and water began seeping through a familiar spot in the ceiling where Billy had once swatted a fly. Billy snuggled deeper in his hessian blanket and dreamed of rabbits fighting pirates on the high seas. His only problem was that the brown stain on his very thin underpants would reveal his cowardice. [2.9]
Nov, 2004: Pleasant glowing hazlenut colour. Pleasantly musty malt aroma with hints of banana and raisin. A slight cardboard flavour (BBE is 8 months away). Modest vanishing mouthfeel. A touch of spice in the finish. I like the Vienna style, but this is a little flat and uninspired. [2.5]
Feb, 2005: Drinkable lager with some extra caramel flavour. [2.6]

I’m sorry, Bebop, but I think shittiest has ’tt’s. Can we petition Femsa to change the ’XX’ to ’TT’ to better represent their product? The extra points go to it for being Mexican which is a handicap in itself...

Clear light amber color with a light fluffy head. Light malt aroma. Light malt flavor with only a touch of bitterness. Somewhat thin in palate. A decent mild vienna.

Surprisingly good Mexican beer. Nice full start with a light to dry backend. Beautiful color on this one.

Amber color, beige head. Light malt nose and taste. One of the better Mexican beers
