Managed to sneak this one into the Festval of Beers in Brisbane, but after i tasted i wondered why i even bothered, very bad. Amber-red colour. Zero head retention. Sweet toffee and plastic, watery. They obviously used corn in this one, almost as bad as the regular Dos Equis.

12 oz. bottle

A: Quarter finger head, dark amber color typical of viennas.

S: Smells malty and like alcohol; no other pleasant smells in the brew.

T: Bitter taste and cheap alcohol flavor - the bitterness is not from the hops and tastes awful.

M: Overcarbonated in mouth.

D: I hate this, so not drinkable.

So it is Cinco de Mayo and I have absolutely no connection to the culture of it but here I am with a Mexican beer. I've been told this is the best Mexican macro out there.

Pours a deep reddish amber with a tiny white head that quickly dissipates without lacing.

The smell is ultra light, some light and toasted malt is all that I get.

The taste is putrid, just funky watery corn, I was expecting somethign decent actually. This is crap.

The mouthfeel is ultra carbonated and it tingles your gums after a drink.

Well it is only slightly more interesting than a Corona so it isn't worth trying really.

Pours a clear amber color with no head or lace. It's aroma is caramel and bread crust. The flavor is sweet malt with no hop bite and a hint of caramel, bland. The mouthfeel is thin. Dos Equis Amber Lager is just a regular beer, nothing special, not recommended.
