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.

A typical vienna lager without any significant characteristics. Works well with nachos.

Dos equis • Aroma (7/10): Notas de cereza caramelo y café. Bastante tenues. Fuerte aroma a hojas secas • Apariencia 4/5: o Cabeza (color, consistencia y duración):  Cabeza escaza blanca de muy poca duración. Deja una “natilla” permanente sobre el líquido. o Cuerpo (textura, carbonización, partículas y color):  Color ocre, cristalino con apenas presencia de burbujas • Sabor 8/10 (inicio, final y duración): o Inicio: un ligero amargor. Nada en especial. o Final con bastante amargor que da paso a toques salados en los dientes y un dulzor pegajoso pero agradable. • Paladar 3/5 (Cuerpo, textura, carbonización, final). o Cuerpo ligero, aceitoso, sin burbujas. Con final astringente largo. Deja sensaciones propias del café Resumen 16/20: Sorpresivamente, está cerveza Mexicana me agradó. Distinta a las laguer que abundan en Latinoamérica ya con ese distintivo vale la pena catarla. Ni de chiste se mide con las europeas o artesanales pero destaca entre tanta clara.

Had a bunch of this on tap at an all-inclusive in Mexico. A little more malt than its pale lager sibling, but not really much more interesting.

raymow (1443) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2015
bottled - nice amber color (which you would expect from a beer of the same name). A bit artificial tasting though.

Lagerboy (1937) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2015
355 ml bottle @ 5-Forty Cafe. Clear copper, lasting tan foam. Caramel mostly masks the vegetal sewage aroma and taste... mostly. Average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. LF (Lagerboy Friendly) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour ms caramel brown. White beige foam. Good retention. Caramel and a bit yeast in the nose. Taste is dominated by caramel and a faint liquorice backed up by a very slight bitterness. Not a bad wiener lager.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Yeah I have not had this is well over a decade... I could wait a few more years. It is malty, has a slight metallic and corn-y note with a fragrant herbal backing. It is what it is.

Only slightly better than its brother the light lager, only difference is the Amber color with some extra malts, but no much malts to speak of and no hops.
