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.

This is a very good beer. Extremely refreshing and a much better choice than other mass produced beers.

Much better than Dos Equis main brew. It is a great "dinner" beer that is good for an amber but not excellent.

mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2002
dark amber colour, beige head. malty, caramel-ish aroma. fruity, toffee-ish malt seems subdued. this could be a really good beer if the flavour came out a bit more. aftertaste would also be quite nice if lasted a little longer. overall not too bad for a mexican beer.

It has that vienna style sweetness. I would like to see more character but compared to many mexican brews this one is slightly drinkable.

This has the distinctive tang in nose many Mexican beers possess--some roastiness detectable here as well...Color is clear brown-amber with medium head--little lace...Flavor is slightly smoky, with light hop crispness and lingering tang that hangs on into finish...Carbonation is suitably restrained...This has a little more substance than most Mexican offerings and so is a viable alternative to the mass of more anemic offerings, especially when looking for a Mexican beer to drink with a zesty meal...

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2008 9/30/02: Had it at El Torritoes. It’s drinkable with Mexican food, but I’d rather have a Casta. 4/6/03: On tap@On the Border. Cold, wet and rather tasteless.

Amber colour. Some malt in the nose but not much. The flavour is smooth and a little sweet. Not much mouthfeel in the aftertaste. One of my favourites with hot mexican food.
