2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very weak. Not a good head. Skunky aroma. left an awful aftertaste of something rotten. Mexician beers are weak so I guess its not the worst beer but its close.

Delicious, smooth tasting Mexican lager. One of my all-time favorite beers. The head lasts a little longer than your typical American lager and is not as filling as some.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
A typical American Standard. Pale yellow, head died completely. Slight corn aroma. Thin body, some corn flavors, just a hint of something citric going on. I've had worse.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
The Dos Equis poured a very light, clear yellow with a fizzy head that was very quickly completely gone. It has a skunky, yet slightly floral nose. It's very thin and watery. There is very little flavor, just a sweetish starch and some slight skunkiness. Overall, it's a little better than some macros, but not by much.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear golden yellow with virtually no head. Extremely starchy character, corny and sweet. A lime would help hide the bad aspects of this.

Can (sampled: Merida, Mexico 19.2.04)
Yellow with foamy white head. Aroma tight herbal. Soft palate. Watery. Another basic lager/American Standard.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Skunky, pale, watery, corny, yucky. Those pretty much sum this one up. But I must write more, so if you have to drink a Dos Equis, make it the amber.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
How do you describe river water? This stuff hardly has any taste, and I ask myself why I should pay for it, when the tap (water that is) gives me more robust flavor for free?

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: decent amber with a thin-bubbled head.
Smell: decent, but has hints of cheapness.
Taste: (going in the mouth) decent, (pulling the beer away from the lips) bland, (swallowing) decent. I guess that means average.
Mouthfeel: a little lower than average. Actually the mouthfeel is what I disliked most about this beer. Where it's not bad, it left something, I don't know exactly what, to be desired for.
It's a drinkable beer, but not something I'd really want to ask for in a bar.
