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.

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.

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.

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.

Dos Equis Azul has a medium, white head, a clear, gold-straw appearance, with a few stray bubbles and minimal lacing. The aroma is of malt, wheat, spices of some sort, and sweetness. Taste is of all that, with a noticeable citrus fruit aspect. Mouthfeel is medium, and Dos Equis Azul finishes mostly wet and easy drinking. Overall, this is okay, but to be fair, I am not favorable towards the flavored beer style.

I really like the Dos Equis (Clara) green bottle so I decided to give this a try. The bottle hints that it is a wheat beer brewed with spice, carmel with and agave nectar. I am not a fan of flavored beer but this beer is the exception. Opening the bottle the aroma of spice and sweetness are evident. Taste wise this spice and nectar combination are not to overbearing like other flavored beers but just enough to linger for a bit. The drinkability of this brew is smooth and refreshing. Kind of hard to believe its over the 5 % alcohol content that it claims to be. Overall a very classy tasting brew done very well.

This was dropped off in support of The CANQuest ™ by my local, in-person trader, tone77.

“Imported from Mexico”; “Beer brewed with spice, blue agave nectar and caramel color added”; “Enjoy XX Responsibly”.

I had inadvertently done a Bounce Test on this CAN, so I held my breath when I CANducted the Crack! I was worried for naught as it had settled, but it was a brimful CAN, so I decided to shoot the works and go for an inverted Glug. No problem, although I was disappointed by its color. I was CANticipating a lovely shade of azure blue, but no, it was just Straw-Yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4) with NE-quality clarity. The foamy finger of bone-white head showed little attempt at retention and quickly shrank back into itself like a turtle’s head into its shell. There was shrinkage, I tell you, shrinkage! Nose reminded me that I do not care what they put into an AAL, if corn is among them, then corn is going to trump all else. Sure enough, past the spice and blue agave nectar, I could smell corn. Lousy color, lousy smell, I could see where this was headed. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium. The taste was really odd. I did not perceive the corn as prevalently as on the nose, but the spices were strange. It tasted like a vanilla cookie! I kid you not. Finish was semi-sweet and still CANtinued to remind me of ‘Nilla Wafers. Hmmm. Not bad, but not great, either.
