look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Appearance: Crystal-clear medium golden color with a small snow-white head, which soon fades to a paper-thin layer. The carbonation is slight with somewhat poor lacing.
Aroma: Moderate amount of skunk, strong cooked vegetable notes, and some mild, pleasant hop notes.
Taste: Begins with mildly sweet malt and a touch of zesty carbonation. Midway through the taste spicy hop bitterness appears this carries to the end of the taste and beyond, with a lingering, slightly metallic quality. The finish is a bit dry.
Mouth feel: A pleasant feel and better body than a typical pale lager.
Drinkability/notes: One of the better macro brews from Mexico, one could do far worse. Dos XX goes well with Mexican food, and it can be found any Mexican restaurant in Texas thats worth its salt. Very refreshing in hot summer weather.
Serving type: bottle
