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.

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.

Poured a dark amber colour with an off-white/brownish colour. Aromas are of caramel, hops, and spices, although hops are well blended. Has a bit of a roasted malt/caramel flavour to it. Not too bad for a mass produced import.

MohaBeer (53) - Lima, PERU - AUG 18, 2015
Ambar intenso y transparente, espuma moderada a baja. Aroma malta maltoso moderado a alto, lúpulo cítrico-herbal bajo. Tibieza alcohólica, balance a malta maltoso, con final seco y amargor moderado de lúpulo propio. Buena carbonatación, con cuerpo pleno, muy buena cerveza industrial estilo Vienna.

jrodooo5 (1286) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Not horrible & actually almost decent on a warm summer’s night. Thin copper pour w/ a white head that leaves little lacing. The aroma is bready & malty but not off putting. The taste has a little bit of body & character. There’s a slight sweetness & not completely watered down Mexican crap. You could do worse!

Leafs93 (1900) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2015
Pours amber with a small off white head. Aroma is caramel, toast and a slight hint of roasty chocolate. Taste is sweet with very mild bitters. Light bodied, smooth and also goes well with the burritos I’m eating.

tfontana (185) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 3, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2015 Bottle. Aroma is mild malt. Appearance is clear dark brown (like root beer or cola) with nice sparkle but no head/lacing. Taste is mild sweet. Palate is light-bodied with thin texture, average carbonation and abrupt finish. Refreshing beer without complexity or tremendous interest but well above the average domestic swill.
