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. 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.

This is the better of the mexican beer selection, but it still sux. I don’t know why people in a warm climate wouldn’t brew ales intead, because refridgeration must cost a fortune there.

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.

Cerveza lager obscura de buen sabor sin nada extraordinario, se siente un amargor algo de caramelo pan tostado

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Bottle on American Airlines flight. Light taste, smooth, but very plain. I wouldn’t bother with this again.

12-ounce bottles. Not a bad choice for having Mexican, although I would be more likely to order the more flavorful Negra Modelo instead.

Muggus69 (1907) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2016
Bottle @ a Mexican restaurant Clean pale amber looking thing. Not a great deal to offer on the nose - light malt toastiness. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, relatively clean. Bit more character than your average lager - touch of caramel malt is enjoyable but short lived, mild bitterness. It’s ok.
