COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dos Equis Special Lager is a refreshing, crisp, golden, lager style beer imported from Mexico. Made with roasted malts, choice hops, a unique strain of yeast and purified water, this distinctive brew is known simply as “Lager” in its homeland.

Not surprisingly, very watery. Shy malty flavor followed with little hops. My sample was a little skunked. Nothing outright offensive about the beer, though, just plain, plain, plain.

I had it in Canada in all places. I wasn’t really into it, i wouldn’t recomend it.

Only beer at all inclusive mexican resort that I visited for 9 days. Got used to the taste then. Golden beer with presentable hops and not too bitter. Not my favorite american standard but good enough to shake a stick at.

No real discernible aroma, natural crisp lager flavor unlike its amber cousin which has an artificial caramel taste to it. All in all, not a bad compliment to chips and salsa. Will get this again when in a Mexican restaurant.

Bottled. Golden colour. Fruity, strangely champagnelike nose. Light bodied, but not as thin as many other mexicans. Rather sweet and just a hint of bitterness.

better than most of the style-an average bar beer if available

My god this was horrible. Drank at a party (I figured I’d rate it on here). The average now is 2.61. BULLSHIT. This beer is HORRIBLE. A little bit of nutty (read cheap adjunct) aroma. No flavor. To be fair, some absolutely disgusting flavor--like a residual flavor the fuckhead brewers weren’t able to get rid of. This is garbage and people who drink it are...at the very least ignorant. There are easier ways to get plastered. Nobody should be getting rich off this shit.

An ok beer. More than I expected from Cerveceria Cuauhtemoc Moctezuma. Not great, but for less than $6 a sixer, you gotta enjoy some flavor in your water.

I certainly hope they purify the water in this beer because there is a lot of it in here! rather bland
