The smell is probably the only acceptable thing about this lager, and that's because it barely had one. The appearance is a dark urine, and is about 90% carbonation with barely any foam. The only way to describe the taste is dirt. Imagine walking down a dusty road and having a truck rev up a gallon of dirt in your face, breath deep, and imagine that as a taste. That's exactly what this tastes like, and it lingers in your mouth for a good minute afterwards.

(There's a subtle wheat-ish taste after the dirt, but then it throws more dirt at you.)

My go - to while enjoying the food at the El Azteca restaurant in Neenah WI. Nice crisp brew . Great with a Lime wedge.

12 oz brown bottle - not dated

Dos Equis Amber Lager poured a copper/amber color producing a small white head. The nose is of light toasted malt and caramel. The taste matches the nose with malty sweetness noted. The Amber Lager is light bodied and crisp with medium carbonation.

Dos Equis Amber is an easy drinker - with more flavor than Dos Equis Lager. This Lager is one of the better Lagers to come from Mexico.

There were positive aspects such as the malt aroma and taste. There was also a rubbing alcohol taste that was tough to ignore

12 Oz Bottle poured into glass
Look - amber colored (shocking i know), foam head is medium and some good lacing on the glass
Smell - sweet malt, corn, honey and slight coffee
Taste - Although i prefer no corn syrup, this isn't too bad. It is sweet but not syrupy. Toasted and roasted Malt is pretty much the flavor, very bready and grainy. Caramel. Not much in the way of chocolate or coffee. Carbonation is medium and fairly drinkable. Not the best beer for eating food with, somewhat filling as it is a darker beer than typical mexican lager.

Overall, easy to drink, smooth, with good flavor. Not exceptional or bursting but its just a good amber beer. Grade is A-
