    My current favorite beer, refreshing, not heavy



“Dos Equis” is Spanish for “two X’s,” which merits some further questions on its own. Here’s the story: Initially, the beer was named “Siglo XX,” referring to the Twentieth Century, but it was soon renamed for the Roman numeral (the two X’s). This had a better ring to it, particularly when the brand began its epic and eternally hilarious “The Most Interesting Man in the World” ad campaign. Today, the name Dos Equis signifies a reliable, delightfully flavorful beer with a smooth finish and balanced composition.
Dos Equis Lager has a unique flavor that includes light caramel and malt but no hoppiness, resulting in a flavor profile that includes a touch of sweetness and only a mild bitterness. That bitterness is key to balancing out the malt and creating the tasteful composition of this fabulously popular lager. At 4.7% alcohol by volume (ABV), it has a clean finish and is always a welcome guest at parties.
Dos Equis beers are not gluten-free since they include malted barley, along with pure water, corn starch, corn syrup, ascorbic acid, and hops. If you’re not sensitive to gluten, you’ll enjoy a beer that artistically blends a faint caramel and malty sweetness with a low-flying bitterness to create a balanced, well-composed amber lager. 
Dos Equis is a fantastic contribution to get-togethers and parties. This imported beer is mild and balanced, and it includes a well-crafted counterbalance between sweetness (thanks to the notes of caramel and malt) and bitterness. People love its clean, smooth finish and its eye-catching color — plus, who doesn’t want to drink the favorite beer of the Most Interesting Man in the World?
