COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

On tap, pours medium amber with thin white head. Slightly sweet aroma. Biscuity, caramel malt taste marked by an almost complete lack of hops. Not totally, but close. Aftertaste is... nothing. Not objectionable, really, just not much there. On the other hand, generally one of your better bets at Mexican places.

"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.

The most interesting man in the world( T.V commercial man who impersonates JAMES BOND) apparently says he does not always drink beer but when he does he drinks this stuff. Kinda cheap and thin for a Oktoberfest and tastes like a bunch of werthers original caramels were melted and added before bottling. The taste of the caramel not from the malts development rather an additive. Drinkable enough but nothing to special. The Budweiser of dark Mexican beers

hfmejias (745) - Dover, Delaware, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Draft at La Tonalteca Mexican Restaurant (Dover, DE). Dark Amber, nice white head and decent lacing on the glass. Aroma of malts, hops and grain. Taste is consistent, sweet, malty, slightly bitter and hoppy... Easy to drink, crisp, refreshing; OK beer.

swesson (238) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - AUG 17, 2014
On tap at OTB. Dark amber body and makes a thin white head. Good lacing. Very typical of this genre. Not much aroma, at least if there is, it's hard to smell it over the included line wedge. Tastes a bit watery with a little bit of malt. Not much hop taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
