A beer that could be a nice Vienna. It just isn't.
Sweet for the style and without the subtle complexity. Light in the malt department and the hops do little to balance things out.

Look: Perfectly clear amber color with a large tan head that quickly dissipates.

Smell: Very malty with a sharp, almost spicy note. Grass and toasted grain.

Taste: Extremely watered down. A faint hint of toasted malt and that's about it.

Mouthfeel: Surprisingly thick with little carbonation.

Overall: Every part of this beer is great for an amber lager...except the taste. I don't know how such a thick beer with such a strong smell tastes so watered down.

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a conical pint glass; best by September 2018.
A: Pours a crystal clear, dark copper color with very exuberant head formation, leading to a three quarter inch, light tan head with low retention and moderate foamy lacing.
S: Aromas of apple, caramel, and toast with a grainy note.
T: Palate largely follows nose, although with a further cola/sarsaparilla note. Light and refreshing.
M: Light bodied with persistent effervescence. Drinks very smoothly.
O: I have had Dos Equis Amber many times, often with a wedge or two of lime. It is a very light Vienna Lager and both drinkable and freshing, with lime or not. Scores seem a tad low for something this enjoyable.

Had this on 2018-06-28 in Grapevine, TX at Flips Grill on tap.

A - Clear straw with a white head and mild lace.

S - Cheerios and light grass

T - Much like the smell.

M - Light body and medium carbonation.

O - Decent adjunct lager. Nice with dinner after a walk in 100+ degrees.

On draught at a local Mexican restaurant. Paired with Baja shrimp tacos. Dark amber color with very faint aroma. Smooth taste with just a hint of bitterness. Not at all watery. A good beer to enjoy Mexican, BBQ, or just about anything. A classic Mexican cerveza.
