Dos Equis Amber is one of my favourite general drinking beers. I know Mexican lagers are maligned in the craft beer world, and sometimes for good reason. They can be bland and tasteless and substitute almost seamlessly for water on a hot day. But there’s something compelling about the darker Dos Equis – every hardcore pale lager drinker who I’ve introduced to the Amber has fallen in love immediately. This brew is a strange paradox; thin yet rich, sweet yet dry and somehow still retaining that thirst-quenching character of a pale lager. So with summer around the corner in Australia I thought I’d brew up an amber to keep on hand and try to convert a few more pale lager drinkers!
