A good mexican beer (not saying a whole lot.) Bit of a malty/roasty flavor, goes well with Mexican food, probably not worth what it usually costs in the store.

Bottle. Barely there caramel and biscuit scents, taste is a burned out and watered down caramel thing. A slightly lingering salty and bitter after taste is nice

Originally rated on 9/21/08. I thought i would prefer this one over the regular dos XX but this one wasnt very good. Aroma and flavor of old grain. Mouthfeel was a little thin. The body was a dark amber with a thin head that quickly disappated, no lace left on the glass. I probably wont try it again

Dark amber pour with large off white head. Aroma of malts, caramel, grains and faint hops. Taste of caramel malts, grains, corn and faint hops. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, nicely balanced. Low on taste and character but goes down good on a hot day.

Nice amber color with an off-white head. Mild caramel malty nose. Typical caramel malty and light hoppy flavor. Still quite fresh and easy drinkable.
[Bottle from Jacobs på Holtet in Oslo, Norway]

De cerveceria Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma-Heineken(MEX) "XX Amber" una Amber Lager de 4.7% ABV, en resumen este estilo es una versión de las Generic Adjunt Lager mas obscura. En apariencia la "XX Amber" tiene una mínima corona de espuma de breve retención, actividad de carbonatación agresiva, color ambarino profundo pero muy cristalino con destellos cobrizos, cuerpo flojo a simple vista. El aroma es a azúcar quemada, maltas de maíz, algo de corteza de pan, nota acida perceptible, en general aromas básicos y de poco carácter. Ya en el paladar predomina un dulzor, sabor a azúcar quemada, en algunas Amber Lager y Darck Lager es comun utilizar azúcares quemados como adjuntos no solo para dar sabor, sino tambien para proporcionar el color característico de la cerveza en vez de usar maltas especiales, esto con la finalidad de abaratar precios, se presiente una acidez que aunque no es muy fuerte si es un referente al ser una cerveza de muy poco sabor, nota sulfurosa o a agua mineral, algo de costra de pan, y un final de nuevo dulce, no es muy de mi agradó y creo es de las peores de la industria macro nacional.

I had it with nachos at a bar in New England. It was probably about as authentically Mexican as that bar, but it still did the trick. Better malt flavor than most lagers, and it didn’t really have too much of the skunk / sulfur flavor that sinks a lot of the macros.

Bbq beer. Does the job. A little bit more malt kick than most macro stuff. A bit skunk.

Not much on the aroma beyond a hint of caramel. Head disappears before the glass arrives at the restaurant table. Mildly sweet with a good little hop bite. Great with pork tacos.
