Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: hopsaplenty on 11-24-2004

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.

12 oz into nonic

A; looks very quite thin, probably due to the watered down cola look. It is brown but not showing the head or viscosity that I was hoping to see. probably due to the style combos but it's a bit disappointing.

S: caramel, coconut, slight herbal note

T: that interesting coconut/caramel combo shows up in the flavor, also a brightness that wasn't in the nose. it's not exaclty citric but leans toward that kind of acidic tone. very refreshing, clean finish.

M: Thin but a bit more body than the visual makes you think, good carbonation bite which may be playing into the acidic notes in the taste.

O: This one surprised me. The look just had me a bit cautious but for a 3.5 brown this is very drinkable and could work on a hot or a cool day. good work.

This beer pours a light bodied brown in color with a good amount of carbonation and a beige lacing around my glass. It gives off aromas of light chocolate malts, caramel, and toffee. It finishes with light bitterness. You can definitely tell it's Munich dark malt. All are very light and well integrated. It tastes of light chocolate malt and again is very heavy on the Munich malts. It it lightly bitter and subtly sweet. It tastes like a less nutty Altbairisch. It drinks very light and is as refreshing as a brown ale can be. For a smaller beer it has solid flavor and is a solid choice.

From a bottle Nov 2 2012 bottled on Aug 3rd 2012

Clear dark brown with small head no lacing. No Idea what style this was when I bought it but brewed with English, Munich and Chocolate malts so I expected and English style something or other.

Much like I expected minus English yeast character. I guess that is OK because it is listed as an American Brown.

Smells sweeter than it tastes and looking at the ABV I guess that was the plan. Just enough Munich character to keep it interesting. At 3.5%ABV I guess this is a session ale and I think it hits the mark there.

A nice malty treat that you could enjoy over conversation with some friends.

Had on tap at Buscuit and Blues, Natchez, MO. Pours a light amber brown with thick foamy head into mug. Some roasted malts and slight coffee aromas. Taste is crisp lightly roasted malts, with subtle coffee and chocolate. Some bready malt finish. Its easy drinker especially under 4%abv. Its a good brew, not amazing but the best (only)craft brew on tap here. But I did get a second...

poured from a bottle into a pint glass. head disappeared almost immedietly. dark brown color, almost looks like cola.

smell is dark malts, chocolate and coffee

taste is much like the smell, with a bit of a hop finish

crisp and smooth and extremely easy to drink

this has a bit too much coffee flavor for my personal taste, but it's easy to drink with a great mouthfeel

A small off white to light tan head quickly dies to a thin lacing and that soon thereafter disappears above this clear reddish amber colored beer.

A light smell of sweet roasted caramel malts with just a hint of sweet chocolates.

A light sweet roasted caramel to toffee taste I really can't taste the hops but I can tell that their there as well as a very light chocolate. Taste a lot like Dos Equis Amber, maybe a bit smoother, I wish I had remembered to buy a lime to try with this bottle.

A light dry aftertaste that brings with it a bit of the roasted caramel malt taste on this medium bodied beer.

A pretty good tasting beer, I wish I had a few more of them, quite a few more and some limes.

Poured from the bottle, this ale was a thin brown color with an half inch head. Any head quickly disappeared to leave trace patterns of foam on the top of the glass. The aroma was particularly bold for a brown ale as the malt was an attention grabber. The taste was watery up front before growing progressively maltier. Notes of chocolate and corn were hidden among the malt selections. In the aftertaste, a mild citrus hop note is detectable among the malts. Because this ale is a little thicker than most brown ales, the aftertaste is allowed to linger a little longer than usual. Overall, this is an above average brown ale.
