Dos Equis Mexican Pale Ale, XX MPA, will be available in cans and bottles across Texas and New Mexico by the end of April.

The cerveza is described as having “all the complexity of a pale ale, but with a surprisingly lighter finish.”

“Our MPA has the complexity and depth of flavor beer drinkers would expect from a pale ale, but without being over-hopped or heavy,” says Lindsay Certilman, Dos Equis brand manager. “Mexican cervezas are known for being light and sessionable, and we took that same approach to this surprisingly refreshing take on a traditional ale.”

XX MPA is 5.5 percent ABV and 30 IBU, less bitter than the average pale ale.

“XX MPA is brewed with fragrant citrus hops and a hint of spicy heat on the finish that delivers a unique kick. Some say the kick comes from the tears of fire ants. Others think the hint of spice comes from magma farmed from Mexican volcanos. While the exact spice used is a trade secret and protected by a pinky promise, Dos Equis brewmasters have finally perfected the recipe for a refreshing pale ale with a surprising hint of heat,” according to a news release.

Dos Equis makes Lager Especial pilsner-style beer and Dos Equis Ambar, a Vienna-style lager. The company was founded in 1890 by German immigrant Wilhelm Hasse, who established the Moctezuma Brewery in Veracruz, Mexico.

Dos Equis is imported by Heineken USA Inc., the nation’s leading high-end beer importer, a subsidiary of Heineken International NV, the world’s most international brewer. Key brands imported into the U.S. are Heineken, Dos Equis, Tecate and Strongbow Hard Apple Ciders. Heineken USA also imports Amstel Light, Red Stripe, Tiger Beer, Newcastle Brown Ale, Birra Moretti, Bohemia and more.
