Anyone who's been to certain areas of Mexico will know Corona is the big brand marketed but the locals drink Dos Equis (XX).

It's very hard to get it over here (that may change since Heineken bought the brewers) but I found some last night at beersofeurope.co.uk for £33.76 + postage for 24.

If anyone's tasted Dos Equis Amber (you can get it in Asda now) it is not the same - Especial is far superior.

I ordered some last night and can't wait for the weekend now!

They're bottles and it works out at £1.41 before postage.

I drink stuff like Moretti, Peroni, Corona + LIME in summer (Corona - lime = trash) and even Newcastle Brown but Dos Equis eclipses them all.

I got a Mexican selection pack from Makro a while back but it only had 3 Especials with the 3 Ambers and 3 Sols.

£1.57 in Asda....!

No. It's Amber. That sucks.

Decent beer, very popular down in South California and Baja :thumbsup:

You can find it in some of the Mexican restaurants over here if you're lucky enough. Not sure I'd pay this much for it though as by quanity you can probably buy comparable/better premium lagers (such as Peroni, Budvar etc) for less in our supermarkets.

Corona etc tastes so much better with lime rather than the lemon that most folks put in.
