Pours straw yellow with a bit of foam and very little aroma. Has a bit of a skunky taste mixed with caramel. It’s nothing special nor memorable.

Draft (served with a lime). No noticeable aroma. Straw color with no head and minimal lacing. Watery upfront with little flavor. Some rice and with hints of thin malt in the clean finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle into glass. Very slight malt nose. Yellow beer with lasting white head. A little lacing. A bit spritzy. Finish is chalky cardboard, a little malt perhaps. Drinkable.

Dos Equis Lager Especial is not very special. Like so many mass produced lagers, it suffers from a cheap choice of ingredients and low hop bitterness and character. As a result, the foam dissipates quickly. The color is clear golden and the aroma is very neutral. The taste is also very neutral with a corny aftertaste which comes from the use of high fructose corn syrup. This reminds me of Miller High Life. Not bad, but a bit pricey for a generic lager. Mexico makes some very nice beers, but this is not one of them.

MarkoNm (1127) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JAN 14, 2015
Pours a clear golden color, topped with a frothy white head. Mild malty aroma, grainy, Slightly skunky. Taste is sweet and light, watery, with very little bitterness in the end. Not much to taste there.

Grassy, slight skunked aroma. Light airy taste. A crisp yet uneventful pale lager.
