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.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Look - dark/medium brown in color, with about half a finger's worth of off-white colored foam that dissipates quickly.

Smell - malty and a little musky smelling. I can't smell the noble hops being used though.

Taste - malty, and noticeably on the caramel/chocolaty side. Almost tastes like a cola. The maize can be noticed a little bit in the finish. Slightly bitter aftertaste, but fleeting.

Mouthfeel - pretty well-balanced, but leans more toward the watery side.

Overall - very interesting beer in its concept. I just wish it could dome out a little more in the taste.

Appearance looks much like iced tea - dark brown and transparent around the edges with a small quick-fading head. Malt and floral scents are weak. The taste is a bit sweet, bready, and a bit herbal. Mouthfeel is on the thin side. Not bad, but not great either.

Got this one in the 2012 Birthday BIF from bstaffor; thanks Brian! Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into my Goose Island nonic pint glass. Bottled in the second week of December 2011 according to the label.

a - Pours a somewhat transparent medium body color with two fingers of light tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Head lasts for a few minutes and an inch throughout drinking it. A tiny bit of lacing left on the glass.

s - Smells of nuts, roasted malts, toasted malts, chocolate, cocoa, spices, bready malts, grains, and caramel malts. Prett nice.

t - Tastes of roasted malts, chocolate, toasted malts, caramel malts, nuts, spices, bready malts, corn, and grains. Still pretty nice, but not as strong as the nose, and a little bit of a step down.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Very smooth and creamy. Very easy to drink.

o - Overall a nice session beer and a nice brown ale; I liked this one much more then their Pale Ale. The nose and taste are a nice mix of nuts, roasted malts, and caramel, and it is very easy to drink with the smooth body and very low ABV. Worth checking out and would have it again.
