First off get that god damn lime shit away from my beer. Just leave the beer alone, it is just fine the way it is. Put me in any East Boston Mexican-Latin infused eatery or even a decent chain like Chevy's Fresh Tex Mex and I will in rare form with this beer at my side.

This is listed as a commercial example on the Beer Judge Cert. Program for vienna lager.
Aroma:Wonderfull, malty, toasty and chewy. Smells like it came out of the brewery tap.
Appearance:Dark amber, creamy head.
Flavor:Malty sweet but kinda thin. Very thin.
Impression:Must have gotten a very fresh six pack. Oh the aroma! Still, wish the flavor would have held up it end.

I used to think this was my favorite Mexican beer. I don't anymore. It'sjust averge. Dos Equis is clean and crisp and stays flavorful throughout the meal. This beer tastes good at first, and then becomes flat. Not a bad choice if you want something different, but not great.

It's a good dark lager and best Mexican choice but I wouldn't go out of my way for it. If you want a really good dark lager, look for Saranec Black Forest.

Not a bad dark lager. One of the best Mexican beers IMHO. Washes down spicey Mex fare and offsets it nicely with its slighty sweet malty flavor.

This is actually quite good for Mexican beer. I was pleasantly surprised. Very smaooth and satisfying. Most previous beers I tried from south of the border were crap.

A very pleasant dark/amber. Good alone or to take the sizzle out of a spicy Mexican meal. Smooth and easy to drink. (Hard to believe this is the same brewery that makes Corona).

Presentation: 12oz custom brown short bottle with a gold foil neck. No freshness date.

Appearance: Clear brown with a semi-creamy, semi-sticky, off-white lace. Tiny carbonation.

Smell: Clean smelling. Faint herbal aroma. Not much else.

Taste: Medium mouthfeel, smooth. Malt flavours a light, watery. Immediate upfront hop snap, mixed with a tight carbonation. Bitterness is quick and sharp. A tad lemony. Brew gets dry at the same point. The combonation of all of this makes it puckering for a moment. A dextrin sweetness pulls through with some grain steely flavours. Secondary hop flavours are herbal/tea-like, as the beer warms. Finishes rather clean.

Notes: An average example of the Dark American Lager style. No more, no less. An excellent complement to any Mexican meal.
