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.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a vibrant brown coloring with no head. Aromas of toasted grains, subtle caramel and nutty sweetness, hints of chocolate, and a toasted backbone. Flavors are richly sweet forward, heavy on the nut, caramel, and chocolate notes, with subtle highlights of char and earth. Very smooth and light, making it extremely drinkable. The beer has a richly sweet and toasted aftertaste, with a subtle sweet linger hanging on through the dry, crisp finish. Tasty beer.
