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

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.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2003 This beer had no flavor to speak of. Light maltiness led to a nonexistent finish. For a Mexican Vienna, go to Negra Modelo.

Mexican restaurant, my wife, my mother-in-law and her 80-something friend, yup, I need a beer and the distraction of another rating. Let's see, Bud, Miller Lite, Pacifico, shit I guess of all the choices this Dos Equis Amber looks the least offensive. Nice amber color out of the bottle with a large white head that dissipated rapidly. Mild aroma with hops and a hint of orange (thanks to my wife who's sniffer is about twice as sensitive as mine, that's good for beer tasting, not so good when I haven't showered all day...). Decent flavor, light and hoppy with a malt finish. Not adjunct sweet or too watery like many of the other menu offerings. The food was good, the beer okay, the conversation "pleasent". Good to be home with a fine ale now while I write this.

Nothing too exciting going on here. Pours a dark amber color with a medium and foamy light beige head. Aroma of light malt. Rather light-bodied with very little flavor. Lightly sweet finish. My money is on Negra Modelo or Victoria over this any day as far as Mexican Viennas go.

i was at a Mexican restaurant in CA and the beer choices were pretty much this, Corona and the standard Bud crap. it was sorta dark with an ok taste. not great, but then again not terrible. i'd have it again if i had no other choices.

When the bartender said 'Dos Equis Dark' I assumed I was going to get something...well, darker. This wasn't bad, that's about all I can say. Almost no flavor at all.

They say don't drink the water in Mexico. You might not want to drink the beer either if this is your choice. While it is not as bad as the tasteless beers produced by miller, bud, etc it leaves much to be desired.

Bottled. Not bad for a Mexican beer. Had a little flavor.

Clear amber. Small tan head that reminds me of pond scum. Light malt nose. Thin, watery feel. Very bland, water flavour. Some malt, some corn w/ a slight sourness.
