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.

FlyingTaco (112) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 10, 2009
Original review posted 10/18/2008... Pours a rusty, amber bourbon color that looks very thin and clammy. No head to speak of. Slight tone of amber malt but that’s it. Not bad but not much of anything. Relatively clean and sparse amber malt. Slight ginger/sarsparilla feel. Not powerful but enjoyable enough, especially with appropriately spiced food. Crisp on the palate aided by carbonation tingle.Slight pine to the hop pucker. Finish is clean of aftertaste. This one’s a nice spot start. Not one for the regular rotation but when the matchups are good it’ll eat up some innings.

Bottle from Milagro’s in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is corn, cornflakes. Taste is Special K served with seltzer water. A little sweet but not terrible.

Had a bunch of this on tap at an all-inclusive in Mexico. A little more malt than its pale lager sibling, but not really much more interesting.

raymow (1167) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2015
bottled - nice amber color (which you would expect from a beer of the same name). A bit artificial tasting though.

Lagerboy (1662) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2015
355 ml bottle @ 5-Forty Cafe. Clear copper, lasting tan foam. Caramel mostly masks the vegetal sewage aroma and taste... mostly. Average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. LF (Lagerboy Friendly) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bolian (84) - - OCT 19, 2015
Pour ms caramel brown. White beige foam. Good retention. Caramel and a bit yeast in the nose. Taste is dominated by caramel and a faint liquorice backed up by a very slight bitterness. Not a bad wiener lager.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Yeah I have not had this is well over a decade... I could wait a few more years. It is malty, has a slight metallic and corn-y note with a fragrant herbal backing. It is what it is.

Only slightly better than its brother the light lager, only difference is the Amber color with some extra malts, but no much malts to speak of and no hops.

330ml bottle into schooner glass. Distant hop nose. Bright copper beer with foamy white head. Light carbonation. Mineral water spritz in the mouth. Finish is short with notes of cardboard & bubblegum. Tiny sour touch right at the end. Refreshing, palatable.
