BEER INFO

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.

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.

Appearance - Pours very thin crystal light brown, thin tan head not much lacing.

Aroma - Mild roasted malt flavors, toffee and caramel

Flavor - Sort of sweet roasted malt flavors along with toffee and brown sugar

Feel - Medium body but thin I thought for the style

Overall - A decent brown ale a little thin and nothing really stood out for me.

Light brown with a half inch tan head. Smells of grains and bread. Taste is malty and sweet. Very thin and watery in taste and mouthfeel. Not one I would drink again.
