Served straight from the bottle on Cinco de Mayo. Sweet. Medium thin mouthfeel, heavily carbonated, and stings like a soda. No noticeable hops.

Freaking guy on the commercial rules. Beer is average, but the guy is my idol. Dos equis is fine.

Solid lager. Nothing too unique about it despite the commercials. Classic combo of malt, hops, and yeast. Good quality.

salaba13 (20) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - APR 23, 2014
Earthy and dough aroma. Clear yellow appearance. Medium bitter and sour tasting. Thin and light body. Beer you should only drink in Mexico or on Cinco de Mayo.

R2k2 (338) - NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2014
Clear yellow lager with the normal white layer of foam. Slight touches of hop in the aroma, but not much. Subtile hop-bitter taste, but a bit watery. The hop-part moves on in the aftertaste, but this isn’t very special either. Helder geel pils met de bekende witte kraag. Lichte tinten van hop in het aroma, maar verder niet veel. Subtiele hopbitter smaak, maar een beetje waterig. Het happige gaat nog even mee in de nasmaak, maar ook dit is verder niet echt speciaal.

Headbanger (3226) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2014
12oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of skunk, corn, and grains. Taste of the same with a bit of malt and hops thrown in. I was expecting the worse for this light bodied brew but it is really not bad.

Bottle, typical commercial pale lager - watery without much taste to it and not very good.
