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.

Zarkam (532) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 2, 2015
355ml bottle from local supermarket in Helsinki, clear deep gold colour, small fizzy fully vanishing white head, hardly any lacing. Light malty aroma of grain and bisquit with a trace of grassy hops. Taste is initially balanced and mild with a hint of acidity, turning into a mildly bitter finish. Light body, dry mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Slightly maltier than the previous bulk lager from Mexico I tried but nowhere near interesting or tasty.

Smells very faint. Lager esk smell. Pours a dark golden colour. Taste is a little heavier on the lager scale. Lots of carbonation. As it should be Had this beer on tap, and a couple of times at home. Overall I was very pleased to have this on vacation. Even the wife enjoyed. Matt

Not so bad when faced with other maco choices I guess. I prefer the amber to the pale lager though.

HenriqueBraga (125) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - MAR 6, 2015
Amarelo dourado, boa formação mas pouca estabilidade de espuma, transparente. Aroma de pão, casca de pão. Pouquíssimo sabor. Baixo amargor e corpo. Boa carbonatação. Aftertaste refrescante. O que se espera de uma cerveja do estilo.

When the hot weather comes and you want something to take your thirsty a Tecate serves you ok. Not much flavour but a nice beer to drink along.

Kita (1463) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 19, 2015
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear pale golden color with medium frothy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma is grainy, bready, grassy and a bit skunky. Taste starts moderate sweet malty, follows by grassy sourness with crisp and dry mouthfeel and mild bitter finish. Light body, thin texture and lively carbonation in palate. Typical pale lager, a bit on a sweeter side...
