A staple Mexican brew. Very good (as mexibrews go) Sweet and malty, but thin and smooth. Very easy to drink.

Pours a clear yellow with a thin white head. Not much flavor. Maybe if I was really thirsty it would be OK.

jooilakon (71) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2017
Bottle 355 ml from an Amazon order. Aroma has some spice to it, doesn’t smell like a lager to me (and I am not sure I like it). Medium sized short-lived white head and a clear golden body. Tastes a little bit like a dry cider mixed with a lager. I couldn’t finish the whole bottle.

gripweed57 (2113) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2017
Clear gold color. Light white head. Sweet fragrant malt nose. Sweet fruity malt flavor up front. Slightly tart and bittersweet finish. No real hop prescence.

Whatup14 (1908) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - APR 15, 2017
Canette 355ml. Couleur jaune très pâle translucide, mousse blanche. Arôme de maïs, végétal, un peu de paille. Goût végétal, sucré, infime amertume. Carbonatation​ moyenne-faible, corps faible.

IMO the best Mexican beer out there. Slightly different than taste than American Lagers.

This reminds me of the British description of Coors and Budweiser American beers: it’s like having sex in a canoe -- it’s fucking close to water! Use a condom, or drink at your own risk!

Oh swell. That Dos Equis Amber tap turns out to have Special Lager coming from it. I mean, no, neither option is a good one, but dammit, I do not need a pint of fizzy yellow DESL in front of me at this point in the evening. Yellow-gold color with a slight white head. Smells like shitty lunchtime street corn the vendor has left over from the night before. Tastes the same, with an all-encompassing buttery yeasty blech dominating the flavor. Sweet. Unpleasant. Shoulda asked for a lime.

RW80 (2486) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2017
355ml can tahanks to Benzai. Apperance: A clear golden with a small quickly diminishing head. Aroma: cardboard, malts, straw,biscuit tones. Taste: moderate sweet watery, cardboard, malts, straw,biscuit tones. Low carbonation, thin watery body. Simply lacks the crispyness, and becomes one of so many industrial lagers.
