Dos Equis was the first legal beer I ever had, when I went to Rosarito, Mexico with friends for drinks. Now, a year and a half later and a more developed palate, I ordered one a few days ago for my first official beer review. Consumed at Chipotle with a fajita burrito, on to the beer:

The head wasn't impressive in the bottle, and it would dissapear quick after each sip. There was nothing wrong with taste, it started with a corn-like sweetness and ended in cooked veggies with a mild spicy hoppiness, though not overpowering. Despite being a middle-of-the-road brew, it was easy to drink and cut the spiciness on my palate from the burrito.
