Dos Equis Amber is a rich, full-bodied Mexican import with a reddish-gold color and is made from the finest ingredients, representing the brand’s traditional Mexican heritage.

ClarkVV (6100) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 23, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2004 Pours a pale brownish, light red color. Very little aroma. Maybe some malt. Taste is slightly watery throughout and barely medium bodied. Some weak malt flavor and ends without much of a memorable drink.

honestly, it isn't robust at all, BUT, for an amber beer it's very smooth, mabey some would say that doesn't make it a true amber, but my buds guzzled it down on cinqo de mayo. above swill.

Fresh, without any unpleasant taste. Very clean and light. Extremely easy drinkable. I had it with a lemon squeezed in it.

Looked really good pouring from the bottle, but that was it! Very bland...lacking any trace of hops. Probably not bad as a stepping stone beer when making the transition from Budweiser to real beers. This isn't something I would ever try again!

Nice medium amber color. Little head.Light but balanced malt and hops up front. Pleasant aftertaste. Just a very drinkable brew. Even better on draft...Hysteria

Way better on tap than in the bottle. But doesn't compare to negra modelo. Still a good mexican beer but their is better.

beastdog75 (364) - Brick, New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2003
Not as full bodied or as flavorful as Negra Modelo. Some decent roasted malt flavor and some hop bitterness, but leans towards the edge of wateriness. Easy to drink.

YnotABeer (96) - Missouri, USA - MAY 24, 2003
pretty good; nothing memorable, but fine. better than the lager, some hops and more maltiness but still falls short of a beer you'd pay over a dollar a bottle for.

haddon90 (1630) - Newport Beach, California, USA - JUN 17, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2003 I had this on tap and it's very smooth. Nice amber color. good head and a great taste. Add a lime and it's a good Mexican beer.
