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 first couple of sips aren’t too bad, if it’s served ice-cold. Not really much of a head; dull taste.

One of the top mexican beers. Smooth flavor with a medium body. Not much aftertaste, but well balanced overall and worth a try.

Better than the really vile American mass-market beers, but not by much.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2004 I wouldn't buy this normally, but it is one of the palatable Mexican beers. Fuller body than what you might expect.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 11, 2002
Clear light copper. Thin white head. Light carbonation. Decent toasted sweet malt aroma mixed with hard water minerals. Smooth and clean. Adequate Vienna maltiness and tingly hop balance. Light bodied. Easy drinking. Slight macro taste creeps in but is tolerable. Toasty aftertaste. Finishes with a dextrin like sweetness. An overall good choice to match with Mexican food.

I like Dos Equis more than any other Mexican beer I have had. t is smooth and slightly darker than the others. Definitely worth a try.

A very fine beer that actually surpassed the Dos Equis Green. I was pleasantly surprised. Recommended.

Good amber color, a bit more flavor than some others, but overall unexciting.

Nice copper colour...that’s all:((((( It is devoid of any flavour.

ALmost no head, a deep, brown color. Taste is bit malty with some bitterness-quite ordinary. A little bit more full-bodied than most beers similar in taste. Nothing Special - Thumbs down.
