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.

Pours brown with a thin, quickly dissipating head. Aroma is malty with roasted notes. Flavor is malty with roasty coffee notes, no hop flavor and minimal bitterness but enough to balance sweetness. Finishes roasty with an astringent bitterness. This is the best of a sampler pack from Yazoo and lets me know that the issues I taste in their beers are not from an old sampler pack but flaws in the brewing process.

Bottle thanks to Springlicker. Pours dark brown with white head. Nose and taste of nutty malt, dark bread, toasted grain and light maple. Lighter bodied. Okay.

Bottle. This beer is horrible. Taste like malt liquor to me. Very heavy on corn aroma and taste.

A dark clear brown altbier with a thin big bubbled mocha head. In aroma, light sweet nutty malt, dark fruits, not bad. In mouth, a light sweet nutty malt with light peated notes, a bit watery but decent. Bottle from Oct. 2011.

Tasted out of a 12oz. bottle. It poured a clear reddish-brown with a thin off-white head. Fruity malt aroma and taste with a slightly bitter 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. RJT

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.

Bottle->tumbler. Amber with small lacy white head. Caramel malt, nuts, hints of earthy hops and ash. Somewhat watery, lacks depth. Eh.

rosenbergh (6685) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2013
12 oz bottle. Bottled 8/23/13. (Midtown Wine) Nashville, TN.
Dark mahogany colour with a tiny off-white head. Dark malt and mild hoppy sweetness in the aroma. Sweet malt, mild smoke (?) and mild dark hops in the flavour. Quite boring. But a good history lesson. I didn’t know Austria ruled Mexico some time ago...
