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.

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.

This beer is smooth! True reflection of Mexico. I am open to exploring new beers and this one didn't let me down.

Decent amber. Fits the style. Good for light drinking, like when this is the only choice other than bmc type stuff. Nothing remarkable.

Amber body with a white head. Aroma of corn and citrus. Taste matches the aroma, slightly effervescent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I am ashamed how much I loke this beer. Its light has just enough hops to enjoy with anything has an interesting aroma. Its better than bud light.

Not much aroma at all to speak of. Slight caramel malt taste without much hop to speak of. Watered down and thin. Kinda meh.

Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass. Aroma- Smells of corn and maybe some grain and malt, stronger than Coors Light less than Heineken. Appearance- The beer is a dark amber with a small white head. Taste- Has a nice mild flavor, it definitely a micro, but it does have character. Palate- a medium bodied brew with moderate carbonation. Has a dry finish and minimal aftertaste. Overall- A pretty good beer, I definitely choose this when I am eating Mexican food

A hint of lagers goodness with malts and a slight amount of hops. Pretty standard fare yet better than most mass market lagers. Body even has a slight chewy note to it. Finish kills it with that thin metallic tinge. Decent.

Hardly any aroma, thin head, high on carbonation, tad sweet. Not my beer, but I like the label.
