BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Yazoo Brewing Company
Tennessee, United States
yazoobrew.com

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.

From a 12 oz bottle via the little lady's daughter and significant other---Thanks Jamie and Jeanette!
This nice brown ale pours a medium brown tinged amber with a nice head of off white foam
that subsides to a thick ring, nice subtle pool, and shows nice sudsy lacing. Nose of mild chocolate
malts, mild grain notes, subtle toffee, and a faint herbal hop note. Flavors follow the nose
pretty much on the spot with toffee and chocolate with a hint of coffee touched by a light
herbal hop with grain notes showing up on the rear of the taste. Decent mouth feel; medium
light body, medium high carbonation, and a lightly sweet finish that is a touch on the watery
side.

Overall, I like this brew for a solid session brown ale, but it needs a touch more depth.
Solid, but not overwhelming.

Cheers

Not a bad beer, but clearly a sessionable brown. Light body and feel. Perfect to have a few at the pub. Almost like an English dark mild, if the malt profile matched

Dark beer that is incredibly light and easy to drink. You would not realize how light it is upon pouring.

Sweet, low bitterness, great summer beer despite the color.

Crushable.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a medium brown color and a somewhat hazy consistency. There was a quarter inch of foamy head that quickly dissipated. Not much lacing to speak of.

S: A somewhat odd aroma of malt, the brown ale nuttiness, and an almost acidic quality.

T: Tasted of a bit of the aforementioned brown ale nuttiness, a lot of bready malt, a tinge of hops, a lot of grain (this gives it an "off" quality), and some brown sugar. Definitely an out of kilter kind of flavor, with the graininess overtaking it. Also simply wasn't forceful enough with its ingredients.

F: A fair amount of carbonation with a thin, watery finish. Light- to medium-bodied.

O: Something of a misfire here. Its flavor simply doesn't cut it. Could have been better.

It pours a red brown color with a roasted malt smell a I also pick up on a hint of chocolate in the smell. The taste is of roasted malts and again a hint of chocolate. Mouthful is is light body and very refreshing.
