I had my first one of these at a party not long ago, and was excited to try it. After trying it, I was no longer excited. Boring-boring-boring. That is all there is to describe this beer. The commercials make it seem like something you'll want to buy and enjoy. No. It's not premium (except in price) it's not at all good, nothing.

Like a girl that wears Chuck Taylors, Raul is taking this one in caution. Dos Equis comes in a green glass, so we are t exactly starting on the right foot. That being said, Raul has totally dated a girl that wore Chucks, and it was all good! And when he drains this Mexican lager out of a green bottle (poured into a Bruery tulip) he’s feeling it! I guess all this one boils down to: don’t judge a book by its cover!

By far my favorite Mexican beer. Very smooth and refreshing. Enjoy on a hot summer day after yard work. It really hits the spot. Would definitely get this beer again and again. Cheers.

The sparkling gold body has a white head that leaves a solid curtain on the glass.

Notes of white grape and semi-sweet corn come along with an almost tart spritz of lemon as well as a touch of wheat.

There's a bit more balance away from the sweetness than found in the Tecate lager, as it brings with it a moderate froth, moderate body and semi-wet finish.

Look: Urine yellow with almost no head. Just a tiny bit of white foam.

Smell: Different than I expected. Sort of earthy and sweet.

Taste: Virtually nothing. Like carbonated water with a hint of sweet corn at the end.

Mouthfeel: Thin, with little carbonation.

Overall: Doesn't taste outright bad, but extremely boring and one-note.

Drank from a 12 ounce bottle. Rating is based on the style.

Look - The green bottle looks nice, and all the labeling is decent. Nothing too exciting, but it doesn't give a bad first impression.

Smell - Nothing.

Taste - Dirt, rust, mineral water. Very unpleasant.

Feel - Uncomfortably carbonated. Very hard to drink.

Overall - An incredibly offputting beer. Not recommended at all.
