Dos Equis was created in Mexico in 1897 by a German brewmaster, who blended his brewing heritage with the spirit of Mexican traditions.  Originally called Siglo XX to celebrate the arrival of the 20th century, it later became known as just Dos Equis (or simply two X’s in Spanish).  Dos Equis Lager Especial is a crisp and golden lager from Mexico, with just the right balance of flavor and refreshment.

4.3% ABV

Clear dark gold in color with barely any nose.  Defininitely different from other Mexican lagers we have sampled.  Apple juice sweetness taste and dry at the end, instead of bitter.  You would need a glass of water after drinking it to re-hydrate yourself.

Would we have it again?  No
