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.

This is the draft version of Dos Equis Lager: I was thoroughly not impressed with this beer. It hinted of the rice in Budweiser. On top of that (or rather not on top of it), it didn’t have a head and the lacing was minimal. One of the plus points was that it had a citrus nose to it, the sole reason I kept the flavor at 4. Other than that it tasted watered down. Perhaps they should invent a new Category called ’Mexican Standard’. The only way to finish this was to add a lime.

Nose smells like sweet corn. No head atop a light gold body that is thin. Weak taste and a slight bitter finish. No balance.

Alcohol, corn aroma. Yellow with no head. Light hoppy flavor but watery and thin. Disappointing, boring, what am I writing about?

A nice body with a crisp taste makes this beer very drinkable. Not a spectacular beer, but nice to have if you just want to have a few cold ones.

Has more flavor than your traditional mexican beer, but not a whole lot more. XX is a pretty good beer to have around if you wanna keep the women happy though.

A great lawnmover beer. This beer was made for the hot sun. XX has more flavor than its cousins.

I’ll admit that I tend to like most mexican beers. At least enough to want to drink them over Bud. That being said, it is a decent beer, with no real defining characteristics other than not being skunky from a green bottle. I’m always willing to drink this one, but I’d rather have Negra Modelo.

Somewhat refreshing...The lesser of the evil Mexican beers. If I’m eating Mexican, I’ll drink this. But only then.
