look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Appearance -
1 cm off-white head, clear dark amber/gold colour, moderate carbonation. Moderate lacing. Head dissipates to a thin film.

Smell -
Malts, yeast, citrus, cherries and sugar syrup. Nothing really too offensive, but there's not much to smell.

Taste -
Bread, a hint of lemon and lime, caramel malts, almond, but on the whole on the plain side. Pretty drinkable, but not the most flavoursome beer you can get - a bit on the watery side and slightly metallic.

Mouthfeel -
Mostly watery, mild fizz, fairly refreshing. Standard.

Overall -
Can't complain too much. A decent mass-produced beer at a reasonable price, and there are far worse lagers on the Australian market than this. Nothing special and it's a bit bland like most beers for the mass-market, but quite drinkable.

Date: 8/30/14

Appearance - 3.9/5
Pours an orange-amber-brown color. A little bit of head retention. Fairly clear. Lots of carbonation seen rising to the top.

Smell - 4/5
Was surprised by the smell. Maltly sweetness, accompanied by smells of cherries, tart apples, and alcohol.

Taste - 3.75/5
A traditional lager taste mixed with significant fruitiness and malty sweetness. Makes for a nice taste. Nicer than a was expecting, given the brand.

Mouthfeel - 3.5/5
Fairly smooth, light to medium in body. A small carbonation kick on the tongue. Moderately crisp.

Overall - 3.5/5
I could see this being a nice beer on a hot summer day. Not really my favorite style, but I don't have a lot of major complaints either.

Dos Equis Amber is best on tap, with a lime on the edge of the glass. The beer is not great, but it definitely passes the time with some good old Tex Mex. The color is a deep copper, with a golden hue in the right kind of light. The head is rather small, about a finger's width, and it lingers. Its aroma is of corn, not overly strong. It tastes of grain, a bit watery actually. It has a dry after effect. Not bad. Not good either, but overall, this is a beer you can have with dinner, and it won't ruin your evening at all.
