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.

Cerveza Ale ligera de buen sabor que no cae pesada y puede acompañarse con cualquier comida, la presentación de 710 ml es la neta

22oz bottle into tulip glass. Minneapolis. Appearance: golden in color, very transparent. No head. Aroma: Very subtle. Grains, I guess. Taste: Mildy sweet. Palate: Light body. Thin texture. Light carbonation. short finish. Overall: No significant flavour. Very refreshing I suppose.

Some times when I'm having Mexican food I get a hankering for a nice cold glass of piss. Dos Equis is what I reach for. Dos Equis satisfies my Mexican piss craving every time.

Clear golden in appearance, very little in the way of aroma. Taste is light grain, pretty watery. Overall a boring, bland lager.

No longer my cup of tea. Little to no aroma other than straw. Clear golden color with a white head. It looked very light. No weight to the beer and highly carbonated. Flavors were bland, mild and safe. Pale malt flavor with little hops. No thanks. Easy to drink with food because it doesn’t taste like anything.

No, Dos Equis. There’s absolutely nothing "Special" about this lager. It tastes just like every other pale lager out there. Ah well, at least the commercials are fun.

pours a straw yellow gold with medium white head. some lacing. aroma is light malt, almost no smell. taste is crisp but watery with virtually no finish. This is not the most interesting beer in the world ;-)

On tap at Duffy’s while bowling. Pours a golden brown. Aroma has simple syrup and faint caramel. Taste is of biscuity malts and sweet corn syrup. Light to medium bodied and sweet.
