COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. The history of Dos Equis Amber is traced to the development of the popular Oktoberfest-style of Vienna lager originally created during the mid-19th century.

Not a bad beer, but far from a favorite. Nice head, nice color, nice aroma. Flavor is ok. Like the green better.

nice drinkable Vienna. Nothing spectacular but makes for a good session beer.

rodolito (163) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 27, 2003
Poured a clear amber with a thin white head. Toasty malt aroma. Sweet malty flavor with some toastiness. Light, dry mouthfeel. A bit more vienna malt would make this better.

A little spicier than XX Special Lager as it is brewed in the Vienna style. Certainly drinkable but I'll stick with Negra Modelo in the future when after a Mexican Vienna style amber.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2003
The only reason I drink this is when I am on thos rare occasion when I find myself at a mexican resaurant and it is better than Corona.

Frank (4061) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2003 The only reason to drink this is if the only other beer available is something truly god-awful like Corona. On tap, it had a very nice thick head initially that faded all too fast. Thin and slightly metallic.

Verne (263) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - JAN 19, 2003
A very good beer when its ether a beer or cold water. Not enough malt but what little there is is good. Hops are only a rumor.

FlemishChar (224) - Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2003
Weak example of a Vienna lager. Has the same soapy taste of Sam Adams. Color is beautiful but palate is watery and flavor has only the slightest hint of malt.

spicedad2 (78) - Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2003
Not a good example of good Mexican beer. It's carbonation is biting. It has a soapy mouth feel as well as tast.

Well I wouldn't really call this one amber style. It has a bit more taste than their special but not much
