Brewed by:
Yazoo Brewing Company
Tennessee, United States

Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 3.50%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Unexpected flavor and lightness from a dark beer. Great "Mexican" beer. A must try.

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.
