I barely remember the first time I had one, I do remember spilling this on a hot girl in Matamoras, Mexico and her letting me lick it off her arm! So naturally when I got back home I tried another and have always had fond memories.

Typical Mexican beer flavor but a little better than most. Nothing exciting enough to buy on a regular basis... needs lemon, probably because the water used for brewing doesn’t taste so great.

Not a big fan of Mexican beers as they tend to have a weak flavor and body, but this was suprisingly flavorful not great but stood well enough that it didn’t need a lemon or lime to give it.

Best of the Mexican brews in my book. Nice dark color and refreshing in an iced mug accompanied by a mound of chips and salsa. Taste is a bit watery but overall a must have with your Mexican food fix.

The first couple of sips aren’t too bad, if it’s served ice-cold. Not really much of a head; dull taste.

One of the top mexican beers. Smooth flavor with a medium body. Not much aftertaste, but well balanced overall and worth a try.

Better than the really vile American mass-market beers, but not by much.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2004 I wouldn't buy this normally, but it is one of the palatable Mexican beers. Fuller body than what you might expect.

Clear light copper. Thin white head. Light carbonation. Decent toasted sweet malt aroma mixed with hard water minerals. Smooth and clean. Adequate Vienna maltiness and tingly hop balance. Light bodied. Easy drinking. Slight macro taste creeps in but is tolerable. Toasty aftertaste. Finishes with a dextrin like sweetness. An overall good choice to match with Mexican food.

I like Dos Equis more than any other Mexican beer I have had. t is smooth and slightly darker than the others. Definitely worth a try.
