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.

PapaVillum (607) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2014
355 ml, flaske, 4,7 % ABV, købt i Netto i Valby, 31. oktober 2014. Cognacfarvet og klar/filtreret mexicansk Amber Lager/Vienna med mindre flygtig offwhite skumtop. Svinder til små gardiner og overflade efter et par minutter. Rolig i glasset. Svag aroma af ristet malt og lidt cognac-noter anes i det fjerne. Ret kedelig og lidt intetsigende smag domineret af malt. Let krop, som virkelig mangler fylde. Let bitter og mindre sødme. Ingen surhed. Flad i indtrykket. Karbonering på et medium niveau og en tynd konsistens. Kort og vandet eftersmag. En lang historie om øllets ophav og en tysk brygger samt øllets lange historie på bagetiketten, stiller mig endnu mere uforstående overfor det uinteressante i denne øl. Hæderlig "ferie-tørstslukker" er det mest positive, jeg kan sige.

brnandersen (2405) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2014
355 ml. bottle. Clear, amber colour with a golden tint. Creamy, off-white head. Sweet aroma with light caramel malts, grains and cardboard. Taste is light sweet. Light to medium body with an average carbonation. Short, slightly dry finish with grains and faint caramel malts. Not much drama in this one.

rjplumer (624) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Heavy clear bronze like brown with a foamy head that is light tan. Mild malt aroma that is pleasant. Nice smooth malt taste with a caramel background. Hint of bitterness in the background with mostly clean wet finish. I don’t always drink Dos Equis but if I did it would be this one. A respectable beer.

"maybe it’s "rich and full bodied" for a mexican lager, but not for real beer. it can be refreshing when it’s hot, and it’s not bearly as bad as american macro crap, but that’s about where the compliments stop."

Inoffensive. Not overly sweet. Better than many macros. Easy to have a few. Not bad.
