Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 85: Dos Equis Lager Especial

Can Dos Equis score 2 out of 2?

Dos Equis Lager Especial

Not really.

Pours a clear pale yellow with a medium head that fades quickly to a thin cover. A lot of carbonation is visible in the glass

First Sip: A small amount of malt buried under a sweet corn and grain flavour. A bit of hops is in the background but it doesn't linger. The finish is crisp and moderately dry.

This isn't a bad beer as such - it's just a bit disappointing after the Amber for yesterday. It is a little thin but quite refreshing and very drinkable. Not a bad brew for an adjunct lager. It would make a good hot summer's day quaff.
