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. Jon123 (36) - Emmaus, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2003
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. dberger624 (1028) - Voorhees, New Jersey, USA - MAY 11, 2003
Bottled. Not bad for a Mexican beer. Had a little flavor.................... joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2003
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. Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAY 8, 2003
Large head with somewhat a malty aroma.Fairly smooth taste with malt and chocolate present.A notch below modelo.

It had been 7 or so years since I had XX Gold Label. I was looking for something to celebrate Cinco de mayo with but didn't want to go with one of the myriad bland yellow Mexican lagers. What I got was essentially a German beer. Relatively subtle roasted malt aroma. Large head with good, frothy lace. Head is mostly lasting. Color is reddish orange, or...amber. Malty and smooth flavor; makes for a pretty decent session beer and a pretty good representation of the Vienna style. Not as good as Negra Modelo, which may be Mexico's best, but it is one of it's closest rivals. elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - MAY 6, 2003
Nice appearance in the glass. Claims of "rich, full-bodied" on the label are... well, compared to what? What we have is a thin lager lacking in overall flavor, somewhat drinkable but hardly worth the effort. Problem is this is often the best choice when you're out for mexican food, which I just *have* to do once in a while. So in the end, when in Rome...

Good amber lager appearance, best thing about the beer. Not much nose and not much taste. Indeed, I wondered how a beer with this great color could have so little taste ... no better than a Corona. In fact, the lime would have been the best part of the beer, if I had used it. flemdawg (563) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - APR 27, 2003
It was this or Corona at the Mexican resturant, and Lord knows I don't want another one of those. This was slightly better. I did enjoy the redish color, but that was about it. Kinda fizzy, and not too good. It's a good thing Mexico makes tequilla. jtribe21 (21) - Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2003
Very average lager. Nothing special here. Not much flavor, but also not absent of flavor. Full bodied feeling but also very drinkable because of no bitterness and no strong flavor. In one word, average.
