  • I want more X X

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good feel on the tongue
    Cons: My head faded fast.

    Summary: A couple of weeks ago I was in Mexico on the road between Cancun and Playa del Carmen on highway 307. It's a pretty smooth very straight road with just a few traffic lights. I COULDN'T BELIEVE WHAT I SAW!! Up ahead I saw a bill board. On it ... read more

  • What Goes With Mexican? DOS EQUIS XX

    Aug 26, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A robust beer with a bite that leaves no aftertaste.  Great with spicy food.
    Cons: Could use more malt and hops.  Average.

    Summary: Dos Equis Amber Cerveza.  (XX)  I like a change of pace in beer and I recently revisited an old favorite from my days down in Corpus Christi; Dos Equis.  Marked with two X's this beer was originally named for the Twentieth ... read more

  • What's Twenty in Castillian?

    Apr 6, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice tasting; no aftertaste; easy to drink.
    Cons: Will be too light for some.

    Summary: We went to a Mexican restaurant recently. Three out of four of us ordered a bottle of Dos Equis XX. Dos Equis comes in a dark brown bottle making it difficult to see its pretty color. It is made with roasted malts, hops, yeast and purified water. ... read more

  • X Hits the Spot

    Mar 3, 2004 by Bruguru is a Lead on Epinions in Restaurants & Gourmet
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Not the best, but still a good beer.
    Cons: Could use more malt and hops.

    Summary: I’ve never been to Mexico. At least not yet, anyway. But I have enjoyed Mexican culture here in the good ole USA. In most parts of Georgia that I’ve visited, Mexican restaurants are ubiquitous, most of them with delicious freshly made dishes that ... read more

  • DOUBLE-CROSS

    Aug 23, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Crisp and refreshing
    Cons: Not a lot of complexity or character. A little over-carbonated

    Summary: As you can imagine, on our recent trip to Spain I was forced to consume copious quantities of cold b ... read more

  • Dos thumbs up

    Mar 10, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A highly flavorful beer
    Cons: None

    Summary: Having just returned from Cozumel, I must take a few moments to write about one of the finest Mexican beers I had to drink while I was down there. Dos Equis XX is a terrific beer that goes great with a spicy Mexican meal or just to sip on the ... read more

  • The Champion's Brother - Dos Equis Amber

    Sep 4, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light and smooth
    Cons: Taste may be too subtle for some

    Summary: Dos Equis Special Lager is, for my money, the best south of the border drink. It does have a stablemate, which is also worthy of consideration. Dos Equis Amber is a Viennese-style lager which can easily hold its own among beers of the world. When I ... read more

  • My Glass is Never Half-Empty

    Aug 3, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great pairing for Mexican food
    Cons: There are better beers in the style

    Summary: Some people my look at our desert climate as something of a discomfort once August comes around. The usually vibrant tourist market is dead, the more affluent and wealthy leave town, while those that are a little more pennywise return to live in their ... read more

  • Dark yet light

    Jun 24, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Dark with a light flavor and very refreshing
    Cons: Not inexpensive

    Summary: I prefer dark beers over light beer none times out of ten. There are many dark beers you can sip or taste, but not drink more than one without feeling very heavy or tired. I started drinking Dos Equis when I lived in California, where there was a heavier ... read more

  • Down Mexico Way

    Apr 20, 2001 by Bryan_Carey is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Restaurants & Gourmet
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Smooth, Great with Mexican Food
    Cons: A Tad Light

    Summary: Mexico is known for a few good things. One of these is good food. Another is fiestas and all- night parties. A third is great vacation sites and tourist traps. But one area where our southern neighbors are a little less than great is with the production ... read more

  • A good all around beer

    Apr 19, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Very reasonably priced for a good tasting beer
    Cons: n/a

    Summary: I used to live in San Diego, Ca. So it was not uncommon for me to make a small trip across the border to Mexico. My usual choice for a drink was Dos Equis XX. I was always ready for a good night on the town and Dos Equis XX was never far away. After ... read more

  • Needs a lime

    Mar 8, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Readily available
    Cons: Too light, very little flavor...any price would be too high.

    Summary: Dos Equis is another testament to the power of exposure. People are going to continue to buy this and many other bad beers regardless of the content of this opinion. Such is the power of corporate advertising, however you can be spared the anguish of ... read more

  • Best Mexican Beer

    Mar 6, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Rich plentiful taste
    Cons: A little too bitter for some.

    Summary: I have been to Mexico three times and have tried mostly every beer that is made in that country. I'd have to say that Dos Equis is my favorite mostly because its the best one that is readily available in the United States. Recently I have ... read more

  • Nothing but trouble!

    Feb 2, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Smooth, malty and downright tasty.
    Cons: A little thin, not as easy to find as other beers.

    Summary: This stuff is nothing but a bottle full of trouble. Trouble? Yes, indeed. And, here's the reason why -- this stuff goes down as smooth and easy as water, but the flavor is absolutely fantastic. The formula for Dos Equis seems to be this -- ... read more

  • Dos Equis: Doubly Strong Flavor

    Dec 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Strong, interesting flavor
    Cons: Can get to be a bit too much

    Summary: In the spectrum of Mexican beers, if Corona was infrared, then Dos Equis XX would have to be ultraviolet. These two imports from south of the border are about as different as night and day. Unlike the light, crisp taste of Corona, Dos Equis ... read more

  • Another Quality Mexican Beer

    Nov 28, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Flavor, Weight (thickness)
    Cons: Price, Hard to Find

    Summary: Dos Equis is undoubtedly the only beer that can truly go toe to toe with Mexico's other successful beer, Corona. Compared to Corona, Dos Equis definitely has more of a bitter taste to it. However, it still goes down unbelievably smoothly. Unlike Corona, ... read more

  • I would go with the Special Lager....

    Nov 21, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Umm...it has alcohol in it
    Cons: Tastes horrible

    Summary: I should have known not to buy this beer since it is a darker beer, but since I was drunk when I was at the store I only noticed the XX on the label and snagged it. Well, I took it home and opened the first bottle, and something didn't taste ... read more

  • What a beer should be

    Nov 14, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: smooth taste, great with grilled food and spicy food
    Cons: not widely available on tap

    Summary: Dos Equis is by far my all time favorite beer. I was at one time a Corona drinker. One evening I went to a bar that did not serve Corona but did serve Dos Equis - I have been drinking it ever since. Dos Equis at first is a touch bitter as a ... read more

  • XX marks the spot...

    Oct 25, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: mexican beer at its best
    Cons: not the most available beer on the market

    Summary: Dos Equis is pretty darn cheap in Tijiuana, and that is where I got to know this beer. Despite the sound of that, it is a very good beer. I really found it odd that when I returned to the north east part of the country that this beer was ... read more

  • Skip the Lime

    Aug 23, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: usually available at Mexican restaurants
    Cons: body a little too light

    Summary: Whenever I go to a Mexican restaurant I always find myself drinking a Dos Equis XX. On tap or in the bottle, this amber colored Vienna style lager is always refreshing with Mexican style foods. The flavor is well balanced but is a little too subtle for ... read more
