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.

The last time I had this was with my first Cuban cigars a friend smuggled back from a scuba diving trip to Honduras. Half through the pitcher and the 1st stogie, I started sweating bullets, got the chills, and began hallucinating. Either the cigars were laced with crack or the beer was rather foul. I shall blame the lame beer.

Something with a numbing taste for that spicy food.

At Mexican restaurants, I used to drink this until I discovered Negra Modelo. Bland but tolerable.

A decent amber, and my favorite Mexican beer until I tried Negra Modelo. I’d try again as long as the price is decent.

Fairly boring overall, slightly minty hop aftertaste a la Red Stripe.

A decent enough amber beer. Good with Mexican food, it goes down easily enough to help ease the fire of any chilies one might encounter. Probably the best of the Mexican macros with the exception of Negra Modelo.

The best of the Mexican beers. Reminds me of a water-down Octoberfest. Nice malt flavor, but not much to it.

An enjoyable beer. I let the lime twist fall into the bottle and it tasted great.
