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.

Clear medium amber color with a average, frothy to creamy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to beige head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, cardboard notes. Flavor is moderate sweet with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20090802]

From tap at Yards in Pasadena. Pours clear and golden orange with a lacing white head. Light caramelish dry aroma. Flavour holds a mild bitterness to this dry caramel note. Dry and bitter finish.

Ungstrup (34322) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2004
A red-brown beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted bread. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and a thin body. Quite boring.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 16, 2006
(On tap) Pretty, clear amber with an off-white head. Very vague aroma, perhaps I do detect a whiff of malt - to be polite. Thin and watery with vague traces of malt. Not really that different from the standard Dos Equis - apart from the colour. 160406

Amber color. No aroma and just a light caramel taste, in a watery brew. Boring.

Clear amber with a small brownish head. Aroma is malty, with vanilla, and also fruity, maybe from plum. Flavor is fruity, with touches of cognac. A little thin, but ok.

Bottle. Now I had a bottle of this at a Mexican restaurant in Canterbury. It was my office Xmas do with 10 women. They have never had any interest in beer ever, but as soon as I got my book out to rate it, that was it. Everyone was having a taste of it. After I had fought them off, I enjoyed this reddish copper beer that had no head. Very nice hoppy aroma with good red fruits. Bit over carbonated, some toffee malt. Malts in mouth are a bit cardboardy, otherwise not bad.
