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.

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

It was named to commemorate the arrival of the 20th century and it was the best selling product Moctezuma Brewery between the 40s and 50s. Has a discrete backer rod, strong carbonation what style reminiscent of Oktober fest, distinguishable scent of sweet caramel malts with hints of apple, palate, good body, something light, easy to drink, as distinguished malt candy hints of hops that give a slight bitterness. Excellently balanced Beer

From 12oz bottle, from BJCP study group night

Aroma: caramel sweetness, very sweet aroma, little to no hops

Appearance: amber reddish, crystal clear clarity, white head with minimal retention

Flavor: toasty and malty, grainy, tad sweet, caramel, low to no hops, dry finish

Palate: medium body, medium to high carbonation, creamy

Overall: A very malty amber lager with some toasty and caramel flavor. Very smooth with a nice dry finish. Not bad, but I’m not a big fan of ambers.

Smells very faint. Lager esk smell. Pours a dark golden colour. Taste is a little heavier on the lager scale. More full flavour then the lager. Lots of carbonation. As it should be Had this beer on tap. Overall I was very pleased to have this on vacation. Even the wife enjoyed. MB

Aroma, what aroma. Nothing to sniff at here. First pour had a stench, but after that went away, I was left with nothing really. If you dig around in there you’ll smell some bread, but nothing more....Appearance, it pours an amber color, imagine that! It’s an amber lager with an amber color. Th e head wasn’t really noteworthy either.....Taste. Eh, it’s okay. Very sessionable because it really has no flavor. It’s a tiny bit sweet, no bitterness at all. I really can’t nail down any characteristics of flavor, maybe some maltiness, but that’s about all....Palate, the only reason I scored it as high as I did is the drinkability. It’s smooth and slick, goes down real easy.....Overall, it’s a beer you could easily get hammered on. But it’s not for me. Wouldn’t purchase again. Even the most interesting man in the world probably wouldn’t bother with this, one of the least interesting beers.
