Originally called 'Siglo XX' - 'siglo' is Spanish for century and the two 'X' Roman numerals represent the beer being named to commemorate the new, as then 20th, century. The modern Dos Equis name means 'two Xs'.
First brewed in 1897 by a German brewer who established the Moctezuma brewery in Veracruz, Mexico in 1884.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 24/11/2011
Clear, pale golden yellow with thin white head which quickly collapses.
Uninviting, wet straw, damp breakfast cereal nose with faint wet cardboard.
Uninspiring, dry palate with some cereal maltyness and minimal hops.
Like the palate, there is nothing particularly bad about the toasted white bread finish, just very little of anything much worth mentioning.
