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.

Bottle from the store. Pours a pale yellow with super slight cream colored head. Aroma of cheap malts. Taste pretty much the same.

Bottle. Yeah man, I’m the most interesting man in the world now. I don’t drink piss often, but when I feel like the highest quality of skunk piss I turn to.......Dos Equis. It is the best piss you will ever taste.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2014 Taken or what it is, this isn’t a bad beer. Grains, corn and light citrus finish. Crisp, but finish it while it’s still cold.

Transfer from BA review on 4-10-12 - Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a light golden color with a medium white head . The head faded quite fast giving way to very little lacing. Smell – The smell is light and is predominantly of some malty aromas mixed with an ever so light caramel aroma. Taste – A lighter malt flavor with hints of corn mixed in. There is a lighter sweetness up front that seems to be lost toward the middle and the end. Overall rather one dimensional and bland in the taste profile. Mouthfeel – A lighter body with a higher level of carbonation. The thinness of the body really allows it to coast right over the tongue. This coupled with the slightly higher then normal carbonation level give the brew very little time to permeate the tongue; which in this case is like a good thing. Overall – Nothing to spectacular here. Doesn’t really have a huge taste and the nose and appearance leave something to be desired.

Basically a typical lager, some bread notes with just a little hops on the nose; same on the palate. Light bodied.
