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.

I like the dark version of this beer! A smooth Mexican beer brewed in the American Dark Lager style. Yes please!

I love it. I’m a junior apprentice at best at tasting beers but with about 100 different kinds under my belt this is about my second favorite beer to enjoy.

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.

A very fine beer that actually surpassed the Dos Equis Green. I was pleasantly surprised. Recommended.

I am not a mexican beer fan. Afterall, it must come from mexican water, right? Completely surprised, with rock salt and lime this beer is almost addicting.

This beer was definately better than a corona and a little bit cheaper as well. Tastes pretty good with a lime jammed in it as well

By all means a great beer, I don’t care what that jerk from Illinois said about it. I have loved the taste of Dos Equis XX Amber since the first time I had one at Los Vaqueros with my dinner. Great taste, great color and at it’s best on tap in a frozen mug with salt on the rim and a lime wedge. Drink it because Zac said so.

Not a bad beer but nothing to really distinguish it. Corono and Negra Modello still seem to be the best of the Mexican’s to me. IThis is a little more hoppy then the regular but not quite as flavorful. It’s too weak. Maybe it would be better with a lime. Still decent.

It was named to commemorate the arrival of the 20th century and it was the best selling product Moctezuma Brewery between the 40s and 50s. Has a discrete backer rod, strong carbonation what style reminiscent of Oktober fest, distinguishable scent of sweet caramel malts with hints of apple, palate, good body, something light, easy to drink, as distinguished malt candy hints of hops that give a slight bitterness. Excellently balanced Beer
