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.

This beer was had on tap at Beer Sellar in Nashville, TN which was as forgettable an experience as the beer was.

Appearance of this brown ale was nearly clear in its browness with a thin head that disappeared shortly after being served. Not exactly shocking for the style, but the better browns I've had over the years have a certain creaminess to the head.

Aroma? What aroma? No one's home. Maybe a whiff of malt but that's about it.

The taste was as lackluster as everything else about this beer. Maybe the lines weren't clean and spoiled the stuff. This one tastes like any watery brew you've never liked.

As to mouthfeel, get the paddles 'cause this one's flatlined.

It's drinkable, but not recommended by me anyway. If I ever get the opportunity, I'll give it another chance, probably in bottle form. Not a good showing this time around.

Got this brew as an extra in a trade with Tilley4

12oz bottle, bottled 3rd week of May '07, served in a standard pint glass.

A - somewhat hazy, orange/brown color with a small tan head that became just a ring in 2 minutes, leaving only a few small spots of lacing.

S - not much on the smell just a slight saaz aroma.

T - flavor is odd, bitter tasting brew that leaves a sweetness on the lips and after taste.

M - thin and light, low carbonation

D - I didn't really care for this one too much.

12oz bottled August 8, 2011. Served at around 45F.

Pours copper with a 1 finger beige head that leaves some spots of lacing and holds a small cap.

Aroma is bready with some chocolate, grass and an odd metallic sort of note. Good strength (but not enjoyable).

Flavor is bready with a touch of fruit, some caramel, rather sweet with minimal hops. Better than the aroma but not by much.

Mouthfeel is light/medium bodied, good carbonation.

OK at best...okay not really...pretty mediocre as there are some odd notes that just don’t do it for me here.

Received a 12 FL.OZ. bottle of this in a trade w/ CurtisMcArthur & not sure of estimated price. Poured from the Dark Blue labeled bottle w/ two green yarn made dogs on the front into my 16oz St. Louis Cardinals Pint Glass. Has Bottled On Date 04 11 11 on the side in a designated box.

Aroma- Has a HUGE maple syrup, caramel, and extreme malty aroma that punches the nose. Has hints of toffee as well.

Appearance- Pours a 2 finger head that has VERY good retention. Has a maple syrup colored body but has perfect clarity. Leaves tons of suds behind.

Flavor- A distant malt flavor with almost no American Brown ale characteristic... Has more of a pilsner taste but no hops or anything else... Didn't do anything for me.

Mouthfeel- Light Bodied, Light-Medium Carbonation, Watery, and doesn't leave anything on palate... Pour all around.

Overall Impression- This is one of my first drain pours of the Fall... For some reason, there was such a great aroma but nothing in the taste or mouthfeel... Like water with a bit of sugar and hop added. May need to try this again to see if the Bottled date was too long ago...

The brewery was shooting for a Vienna Amber, similar to Dos Equis (hence the play on the name). While I'm in general a fan of this newer brewery, this particular beer falls short. Pours surprising dark, more like a schwarzbier. Flavor profile is a bit grainy, and the bottle notes the use of flaked corn, which is perhaps influencing my perception, but I seem to get a bit too much corn adjunct in the flavor. Dos Equis is certainly not the best of its style, but I have to say I'd choose it over Yazoo's try. In the brewery's defense, they haven't been bottling all that long, and I haven't tried this on tap yet.

Beer is dark brown and forms an off white to tan head of small bubbles / medium bubbles that leaves some lacing on the glass. Beer is clear at the corners.

Mildly sweet, oddly grainy aroma.

Beer is thin and has an odd late bitterness / aftertaste that tastes like wheat and roasted grains. There is little in the forward palate and its not a very desirable beer.
