After a long hard day at work, there is nothig better than sitting down in a nice Mexican restaurant and getting a huge chilled mug of Dos XX Amber. Very drinkable and flavorfull. I swear something about this beer hits my central nervous system and just says "ahhh".

appearance; as the name says, amber in color, a dark amber with a white head. Dissipates quickly but leaves a nice collar of froth and a film on the surface.
smell; tart grape-like malts, smells a little like white wine with some Altbier mixed in it.
taste; gentle hops and malts, balance could not be more perfect. Some alcohol in there to. It almost whats to take on a tart sourness but the perfect balance stops it before it gets overwhelming. A little bit of dry crisp bread in the aftertaste with a hint of cloudberry jam. This is wonderful!!!
mouthfeel; piercing carbonation and alcohol burn, ultra crip but smooth in a sharp way.
drinkability; very drinkable because it's delicious, well done indeed!

Possibly the best beer to drink if you're incredibly thirsty.
Nothing screams Dos Equis better than with a plate of tasty enchiladas in front of you. Personally I enjoy Dos Equis better on tap than out of the bottle.
Appearance is very dark and brown, with a good amount of head that dissipates quickly.
Smell is strong, but not overpowering. There's a faint hint of malts and barley, but as mentioned before, nothing too strong to affect its flavor.
Taste is magnificent. While the aftertaste comes and goes quickly, when it hits your lips for the first time, a wave of instant relief washes over and kills any thirst from the get go. This is a great "go to" beer that is pretty cheap on tap and moderately heavy beer without going overboard.
I seriously down about 2 tall mugs of this stuff every time I head out to the local Mexican restaurant. For only $3 you practically get two pints worth of this stuff and it's definitely a steal. It's a great summer beer!
