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 best of the Mexican beers. Reminds me of a water-down Octoberfest. Nice malt flavor, but not much to it.

An enjoyable beer. I let the lime twist fall into the bottle and it tasted great.

Middle of the road - fair malty flavor & light bitterness. A small step up from the usual macro-brew.

Not something I would go out and buy to stock my fridge, but at least I don’t have to add a lime to enjoy it.

I like this beer. It is very well balanced and goes with almost any food or occasion. Not the worlds greatest, but certainly worth drinking.

well I don’t remember this beer tasting skunky, but it is today. I’d like to rate it again, but don’t know if it’s worth the money.

This is a pretty good beer in bottles, but a KILLER beer on draft! I can think of no other beer that is so profoundly different between the two sources. As always, (in my opinion) skip the lime. Compared to the Corona quasi-beer, it’s a whole different animal, even in the bottled form. RE-RATE BEGINS HERE: I actually should clarify my comments with the numerical rating: In bottles, this is about 2.9 On draft, it’s 4.0
