Notes/Commercial Description:
Many Mexican beer styles today are descendants of old Austrian styles, from when Austria ruled Mexico in the late 19th century. Our Dos Perros is made with German Munich malt, English Pale malt, and Chocolate malt, and hopped with Perle and Saaz hops. To lighten the body, as many Mexican brewers do, we add a small portion of flaked maize. The result is a wonderfully bready malt aroma, balanced with some maize sweetness and a noble hop finish.

A: Dark, amber, see-through, little head that quickly dissipates.
S: I've had this beer so much it's hard to think of anything else but it when I smell it. Lime, coco, and malt.
T: Incredibly refreshing. Not overwhelming. Decent bite. There's not as much complexity to this beer as you'd find in some other, heavier beers. But that's not what this beer is aiming for. I personally believe this is one of the best session beers of all time. That being said, this is not a simple beer and it is anything but flat. The chocolate is subtle but adds a good amount of character. I could drink (and have drank) this all day.
M: Less bite than most ales, slight carbonation. Incredibly drinkable.
O: One of my all time favorite beers. Don't overlook it because it's not an "imperial" this or a "tripel" that. This is a fantastic beer that everyone should try.

Yazoo's Dos Perros pours up with a light carbonation that creates a low, but sustainable tannish-white head that nicely collars the deep auburn-burnt umber body. Very bright clarity w/ excellent head retention for a lower alcohol beer that has adjuncts. The aroma is an intermingling of caramel notes (butterscotch candy & hot toffee) & toasted malt (buttery croutons, saltine crackers & sourdough bread) with hints of chocolate (dark baker's chocolate, hot cocoa) along with a nice dark fruitiness and just a touch of spiciness from the Perle/Saaz hops. Very low-negligible diacetyl. The flavor starts off with a dominate caramel maltiness that drives completely through this beer with some buttery toffee/treacle notes and a lovely biscuit-like toastiness that add to the overall complexity complimented by some coffee-like roastiness. The finish is slightly bready, bittersweet, fruity (bilberry, elderberry) & spicy with just enough bitterness to balance. Two Dogs is a medium-light bodied session brown that reminds me more of a Southern English Brown Ale than anything American. Regardless, it has an exceptional drinkability and is amazingly complex for such a small beer. I would love to try a pint of this one on draught or even from a cask via a handpull with some bangers & mash + onion gravy! Yoo-hoo, it's Yazoo!

CHEERS! Beertracker

Dos Perros...one of the many reasons that Nashville is the greatest city in the country.

Appearance: Pours a clear, brown with thing off-white bubbly head. Looks like a brown ale should.

Smell: This beer definitely looks the part of a brown ale but the smell tells you that you're in for more. Malty chocolate, caramel, and hints of bread and coffee.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Creamy but light, bubbly and smooth. A refreshing brown ale that differentiates itself through the use of the mexican and chocolate malts. Pairs well with most any food (especially spicy).

Overall: This is a frequent go-to for me. I highly recommend giving it a shot if you're in Tennessee or North/Mid Alabama.
