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.

Pours reddish brown with a slight off white head. Aroma is bready, nutty, and roasty giving off some mild chocolate. Flavor follows suit with a very mild grassiness in the finish. A creamy, medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, not a fan of this one at all but not a bad beer from a more objective perspective. To me, this beer was a roastier version of an alt while also reminding me way too much of New Belgium's Fat Tire.

Reviewed at Broadway Brewhouse in Nashville, TN; full phone notes taken.

A- Poured from a tap to a pint glass with a dark ruby red, brown center body. A head forms to close to a finger with a white hue and foamy consistency. Decent head retention falling to a small ring with spots of lace once in a while.

S- Malty with some defined fruity yeast character. Toasted and nutty malts are most of the show with some caramel and dark fruits from the yeast. Decent strength for only 3.5%.

T- Yeast character seems to open up and just about strike a balance half way with the malts. Raisin, apple and cherry fruits meld with toasted, nutty, slight cocoa, caramel and medium sweets from the grains. Bread and a defined spicy hop finish.

MF- Very light bodied for a Brown but it can afford to be at 3.5% with the presented flavor. Foamy and lightly frothy. Carbonation smooth at a medium level.

Light sessionable Brown Ale with a malty and yeasty flavor finished with spicy Noble hops.
