Brilliant straw color. Generous foamy 2 finger white head, lasting 2 -3 minutes, strong legs and high activity.

Faint flavors and aromas of corn, saaz, citrus, with slight skunky and metallic smell.
Sharp with hints of sugar and a smoky feel.

Light body with excessive prickly carbonation. Faint and short finish on the bitter end with a lemony aftertaste.

Overall : Poor flavors, too watery, and a little stale.

When you go to a mexican restaurant and the waiter tells you that they have dos equis, be sure its "ambar" (amber) or better drink something else.

pours what you kind of expect an adjunct lager to pour. with this being said it definitely leads the pack in this category. Personally not a fan of beers that requires something like a lime to be drinkable.

This is a decent lager. I can't say anything bad about it. If you're biased towards to Mexican beer, such as Corona, make sure to leave that aside. This beer has a bad rep, but it sits well, and is good for having on the deck in the summer. That being said, there are many more better choices.
