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.

I was very disappointed with this beer. Tastes very ordinary. I don't think a lime would help much here either. There are much better alternatives at this price level.

White, rocky head. Good amber color. Quite a bit of carbonation, Kind of a musty aroma, stale almost. Crisp mouthfeel. Not a real complex beer.

Nice amber body but no real head. Aroma is sweet smelling almost like red licorice. Taste is really sweet and quite unique. Almost like a candy taste. Finish is still sweet and slightly tangy. Not bad in comparison to other Mex beers that are light, skunky and tasteless.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2003 Mexican beers arent exactly world class. This is probably one of the better ones though. Reddish color with a little funky ting in the taste. Seemed better with salsa and chips I was eating. Decent amber beer but nothing I would seek out either.

Dark in colour, very odd for me to see a mexican beer with a dark colour, and not a disgustingly skunky smell. The taste was good, and even better with a lime wedge. Had on tap at Mex, in Rochester, New York.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2003 I had this at a mexican restaurant on tap. I thought it was pretty good. There was no head at all when it was brought to me, so I can't say how fast it dissapated. The flavor was quite enjoyable and went well with my king size plate of mexican food. Knock of points on the bottled. Dissappointed in that. Seemed a bit watery.

The first time I tried this it was really bitter. The second time wasn't much better. I usually like dark beers but this is the exception to the rule.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2006 Dark amber colour with a mostly diminishing frothy off-white head. Lihgt caramel aroma plus corn and fusel adjunct notes. Flavours mirror the aroma. Light bodied, thin and dry. Perhaps a hint of a real dark lager in there, but the adjuncts are too noticable to let it out.

Looks better than it tastes. Watered down version of a real amber. That's the only real comment I've got. Just rambling to meet the minimum comment length requirement.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2004 Had it on tap. Best thing about it is the nice amber color. Mild flavor of hops, but not much taste at all. Seemed very thin. A lime might have made it better.
