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.

Moderate foam. Good aroma of caramel and light rye bread. The taste is not so surprising, but satisfactory of caramel malt, a little bread and a little sweetish spicy taste that reminds a little discreet about pine needles, but without the bitter taste. Hoppy bitterness is beautifully balanced with respect to the malty flavor, but in the end it is a rather discreet and anonymous vienna. It will certainly be very suitable for Mexican spicy food or just as a cool beer when you think you’ve earned it. Some gem it is certainly not, but type correctness and general expectations for a wienerøl are met.

Decent amber pour, quick thin white head. Nose is medium roasted grain. Bittersweet. Middle shows some caramel. Finish shows a touch of hop bitterness.

I had it from the bottle. The taste is malt and caramel. The mouth feel is somewhat creamy with average carbonation. It pairs well with Mexican food.

Pours clear medium amber with a thin beige head, good retention. Aromas of hay, caramel, biscuit, earth. Light watery body, good carbonation. Light sweetness, a hint of citrus, gentle bitter finish. Very quaffable.

On tap at a hotel dinner. Amber pour with a white head and quite a bit of foam and lacing on the glass. Light aroma of malts. The taste is fruity, caramel malts. No discernible hops. Thin to medium mouthfeel. This is one of the nicer easy to drink mass market beers. It’s pleasant and enjoyable.

Served in the bottle at a Mexican restaurant, so did not see appearance. No detectable aroma, slightly unpleasant taste.

12 oz bottle. Pours a nice clear amber color with a thick foamy head, good lacing. Aroma is faint caramel malt. Flavor is very watery. Thin palate. Overall the appearance is probably the best part of this beer.

도세끼쓰-엠버& 4.7% ABV 19세기 오스트리아 이민자들이 양조하기 시작하여 멕시코에서만 살아남은 비엔나 라거. 약한 탄산감에 붉그스레한 색. 색과는 관계없는 평범한 맛. 왜 유럽에서 사라졌는지 알겠다. 크래프트 브루어리들이 가을마다 옥토버 페스트 시즈널하며 내놓은 맛대가리 없고 탄산 목넘김도 없이 만드는 밋밋한 그것에 원형격인 맥주. 하루에 만씨씨 맥주를 반드시 마셔야할 경우에 추천. 티후아나,멕시& https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot
