Pours a brilliant amber. Thick head and strong retention. Excellent lacing. Low carbonation. Smells of malt and biscuits. Campfire. Habenero pepper. On the nose strong smoke and pepper. Rauchbier like with Habenero salsa. Midpalette full of pableno pepper. Smoke and roast. Brilliant back palette of pepper and malt. Burning hot sauce. Lingering smoke and malt. Tannins. Cigar and Bourbon like. Excellent. Decisive but excellent. For those who love fire and smoke. This is it.

Bottle. White head that fades. Clear dull golden color.

Surprisingly, this beer is enjoyable. Whatever spice they use is great. It adds heat and spice while complementing the citrus and hops. Earthy, floral, zesty. I dig it.

12 oz can my wife found in her AirBnB. Score! Light amber body, fizzy head, active carbonation. Fruity aroma, malty notes. Malt takes over in the taste, mildly sweet, caramel. Chilis add a spicy snap at the finish. Better than expected.

Dos Equis Mexican Pale Ale has a thick, creamy white head, an essentially clear, copper appearance, with some bubbles and noticeable larger & smaller white chunks. Lacing is moderate. The aroma is of earth, brown bread, and citrusy hops. Taste is similar, with building bitterness and an pepper heat. Mouthfeel is medium, and Dos Equis Mexican Pale Ale finishes dry.

Bought a sixer of these to try out. It poured a medium brownish color and a medium white head, could smell a lot of citrus. Tasted nice enough however the flavor profile of the citrus hops as well as the inconsistent spicy aftertaste varies from beer to beer.

12oz can poured into Duvel tuilp. BBD FEB 2020 printed on bottom of can. Part of $10 sixer mixer.

The can was not shaken but exploded with overflowing foam that made a huge mess.

Also other reviews say this is clear / filtered. This is not remotely clear. It's so hazy it's almost opaque.

smells like soy sauce, possibly infected. not even going to risk it.

Looks medium copper/brown with an off white head.
Smell is caramel malt with some citrus hops.
Taste is malt forward followed by mildly citrus hops. There’s some spiciness from the cayenne on the backend. It’s hot but not overpowering.
It has a medium mouthfeel and a semi dry finish.
