Serving type: 12-ounce cans. No freshness date.

Appearance: Poured into a pilsner glass. The color is deep caramel brown. A half-finger of light, off-white foam disappeared almost instantly, leaving behind a skim and thin ring around the edge.

Smell: Hairspray, or faint nail polish, is most noticeable at first. (It is nowhere near as strong as it is in some Schell beers, though.) Underneath are toasted malts, caramel, and a little toffee. There are hints of dark fruit esters hanging around in the background, and there is a surprise dusting of cinnamon. As it warms it becomes very bready. It kind of oscillates between a salon and a school lunch cinnamon roll.

Taste: The first couple sips are an awkward fusion of the hairspray (I really have no clue what that would impart that; floral hops?), bready malts, and caramel. As the beer warms, the mix becomes much more pleasing and tasty. Hairspray continues to dominate, though.

Drinkability: This is the last Dos Pistolas I will drink from a glass. The rest will be straight from the can, baby! (1,056 characters)

Very dark amber, almost brown, with just over one finger of head that had good retention before settling to a thin cap. A little bit of lacing is left down the glass. Aroma is not very strong, but what I can smell, I like. A combination of floral hops and caramel malt. Pleasant enough flavor. Has a German malt character with some sweet fruity hints. A touch of floral hops to round things out. Not a big beer so it is light drinking, not too bitter or sweet. Probably could knock a few of these back without a problem. (520 characters)

Too dark, though not by much. I liked the flavor, though it could have been more malt and less carbonation. The aroma though was weak. I'm excited to see the product though, and I will be buying more of it this summer. The format is great, 12 oz cans and six packs are very freindly to the fire pit. (299 characters)
