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.

A Vienna (Austria) Lager out of Mexico sold in the United States. I drank 5 different Pale Ales before I had this, but the taste seems pleasant enough.

Quick3Beers (627) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Pours a copper-amber from a tap. Really not much going on, thought there would be more malt-forward characteristics but rather insipid and bland. I suppose nothing horrendous, just rather a nonentity.

Luvystypotables (1292) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 11, 2016
A sweet malt aroma with a hint of metal. Pours a clear Amber color with a lasting white head. Moderate carbonation, light body with a sweet malt taste and a watery finish. Tastes like Dos Equis except Amber.

REDDOGICE (243) - nantucket, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 8, 2016
One of the better Mexican beers. This one doesn’t have that skunked flavor or smell to it. Came from a "Beers of Mexico" sampler pack.

Dos XX is without a doubt a superb brew when enjoyed on a hot summer day with my feet in the sand. Best served ice cold and lots of them.

HourGlass13 (428) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2015
Pours up a dark amber with a nice tan head. Aroma is caramel, and light toast. Taste is pretty sweet with very mild bitters. Light bodied, smooth and goes well with most red meat and red sauce dishes. To be mass produced and readily available its a good beer.

A typical vienna lager without any significant characteristics. Works well with nachos.

Dos equis • Aroma (7/10): Notas de cereza caramelo y café. Bastante tenues. Fuerte aroma a hojas secas • Apariencia 4/5: o Cabeza (color, consistencia y duración):  Cabeza escaza blanca de muy poca duración. Deja una “natilla” permanente sobre el líquido. o Cuerpo (textura, carbonización, partículas y color):  Color ocre, cristalino con apenas presencia de burbujas • Sabor 8/10 (inicio, final y duración): o Inicio: un ligero amargor. Nada en especial. o Final con bastante amargor que da paso a toques salados en los dientes y un dulzor pegajoso pero agradable. • Paladar 3/5 (Cuerpo, textura, carbonización, final). o Cuerpo ligero, aceitoso, sin burbujas. Con final astringente largo. Deja sensaciones propias del café Resumen 16/20: Sorpresivamente, está cerveza Mexicana me agradó. Distinta a las laguer que abundan en Latinoamérica ya con ese distintivo vale la pena catarla. Ni de chiste se mide con las europeas o artesanales pero destaca entre tanta clara.
