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.

Copper color. OK head. Mild malt flavor. An ok beer for Tex-Mex is they don't have Negra Modelo.

OK but there are much better Mexican beers. Light copper coloring with a light aroma. At least they didn't push a lime with this one.

Never really liked this one, and there are many better mexicans out there, including the original XX.

Not great, but much better than a Corona. Clear copper color with an ok head. Light malty aroma that equalled the flavor. Kind of watery.

I used to really like this beer. Along the same lines as something like Negra Modelo but not as good. Light coppery color. It's watery and the malts are only trace amounts. Nothing special. Decent brew. Better than most.

just a little bit better than the lager,a little darker with more body, just not much more,skeletal brew for a nice of bad mexican food!

Not a bad beer, but far from a favorite. Nice head, nice color, nice aroma. Flavor is ok. Like the green better.

nice drinkable Vienna. Nothing spectacular but makes for a good session beer.

rodolito (163) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 27, 2003
Poured a clear amber with a thin white head. Toasty malt aroma. Sweet malty flavor with some toastiness. Light, dry mouthfeel. A bit more vienna malt would make this better.

A little spicier than XX Special Lager as it is brewed in the Vienna style. Certainly drinkable but I'll stick with Negra Modelo in the future when after a Mexican Vienna style amber.
