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.

Easy to drink, that's about all I can say. If you don't like beer with a lot of flavor, this may be the one for you.

Boring lager with no character. Malt and water taste. Huge lack of substance.

Basically this tastes like water. Went down really good but so does water. just doesn't have a whole lot to it.

This was the only beer out my Mexican sampling that had any hop presence, even though here it is still weak. Color is golden pale yellow, trying hard to be dark. Head was white just hovering over 1/4 inch high, some bubble lace. Smells faintly of sweet spiced malt and just a hint of hop. Taste is more of the same, with just a bit more boldness and sharpness in the flavor department. Mostly sweet malt thats got a slight spice to it and has slight noticeable hop nearing the back. Feel is medium bodied, smooth, crisp and clean, a bit sharper then the others. Easy drinker and bit more to it then just water.

This was the best Mexican beer that I have ever had, but the only other Mexican beer I had was Corona so that is not saying much.

Once again a Mexican beer that needs a lime and salt. Why don't you just drink tequila. This is Miller Lite in a green bottle

Rather not too special American Standard from Mexico. Aroms is very light, tiny bit of hops, tiny hint of flowers. Appearance is yellow and fizzy with completely dissipating head. Flavor is non-deScript. This actually tastes a lot better with a lime in it because after putting in the lime, you at least have the taste of lime. Blah.

Good Mexican beer. Much better than that OTHER Mexican beer, and this will most likely be your best choice if you happen to find yourself in any smaller Mexican town, or lost in the rain in Juarez. Hey, it's another American standard so I don't have much else to say. It's more or less weak, but less bothersome than most.

Not as good as the amber. Good pale color with a white head. I had it in a bottle and would like to try it on draft.

Light pale color. Nice white head. Light on both malt and hops but well balanced. Well carbonated. One of my favorite beers when available as draft.
