Pours a pale straw yellow, with a plentiful quad-finger head of white suds. Almost no trace of lace, though, oddly.

Nose says some spice, corn malts. Curious mix.

Taste is sweet for sure, no doubt from the agave syrup infusion and sweet adjunct malts. There's a spicy and hoppy kick there, at the finish, luckily. Not bad, and one I'd like to re-taste to get a better idea of this unusual flavor combination. (410 characters)

Promo bottle received 6/11. I was skeptical to be sure, but this one is worse than my already lowered expectations. the pale gold color with thin, soapy head that actually laced the glass are the best parts of this attempt by Cerveceria Cuauhtemoc to cash in on the flavored wheat beer craze. aromas of spent grain husks, skunk, and hints of sweetener great the nostrils. can't tell there is any wheat in the malt bill. across the tongue i detect more corn sweetness, little to no carbonation, and, fortunately, no lingering aftertaste. i doubt even the shocktop crowd will fall for this gimmick. (596 characters)

Dos Equis Azul brewed by Cervecería Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma, S.A. de C.V. This brew has an ABV of 5.70% Azul pours out a nice amber color with a small white head. Nice looking brew, the smell is rich with grains and malts. You also pick up a hit of hops and spices in the smell. Now for the taste, it is bold with flavor and spices. The spices are just right. There is a lot going on in this brew. Dos Equis Azul has a nice balance to it, there is nothing overpowering about this brew. I like how smooth this brew is. The mouthfeel of Dos Equis Azul is rich smooth and bold. This is a nice drinking brew, you really can't pick up on the 5.7% ABV in this brew. Overall I'm giving Dos Equis Azul a 4.5 out 5. Cervecería Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma, S.A. de C.V. , did a nice job with this one. I would buy this brew again. (820 characters)

Have you ever had Sweetwaters Blue? If so, than you've had this. Who would have thought that blue agave would have such a blueberry scent and taste. Albeit, it's a tad artificial. It's not bad and makes for an easily drinkable beer I just wish it had a bit more heft. (267 characters)

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of spices, citrus, agave. Taste is very refreshing. Sweet, agave nectar, citrus, some spice, highly sessionable. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a good quality beer. (255 characters)

Dos Equis Azul - Cervecería Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma, S.A. de C.V. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, this brew's head is one finger thick with droopy lacing, and a medium gold body.

Smells like a small touch of the added agave, with some full bodied grains and malt.

I taste that agave, but its not overwhelming like another certain macrobrewer's agave product. This is very smooth and refreshing. You still get a friendly helping of lager taste in this beer.

The mouthfeel here is clean and crisp. This could be a great quencher.

Overall, I'll give Dos Equis Azul - Cervecería Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma, S.A. de C.V. a 4. This came in this year's "Beers of Mexico" sampler pack, but I hope to see it in its own shelf space in my area's retailers of fine beverages. (804 characters)
