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.

Yazoo’s Dos Perros has a thin, off-white head, not much lacing, and a clear, bubbly, rust-brown appearance. The aroma is of pungent, full, brown bread crust and syrupy sweetness, with a background of corn. Taste is of sweet, brown bread crust, underlying corn, and a touch of molasses. No bitterness, here. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Dos Perros finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and easy drinking. Overall, this is very enjoyable.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a clear dark ruby-brown with a very thin and soapy white head. Basically nothing in the way of head retention or lacing. Not very impressed.

The aroma makes up for the poor appearance by providing some nice nutty, fruity notes. Roasted malt with some very light coffee along with a touch of dark fruit. Some corn is detectable as well. Not bad.

More fruitiness than I was expecting in the taste along with a nice shot of roasted malt and coffee. The corn is detectable but it remains restrained in the background and nicely compliments the flavor. Bitterness is on the light side with a very light and almost chalky mouthfeel.

Overall, a pretty nice, easy drinking beer. There is not a whole lot going on here but enough to keep a very light beer interesting.
