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.

Draft. Very dark brown color. No head to speak of. Aroma is mildly malty. Some chocolately hints. Flavor is mostly roasted malts, with a little yeastiness. Not much carbonation. Thin and watery. As my glass warmed a little, I tasted something a bit different...perhaps even off. I cannot describe as to a particular taste, but something different. Overall, not a bad beer.

3fourths (8029) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2006
Bottle. Dark brown and amber colored body, even dark red hues in there. Malt taste, like a brown ale on first impression. Dusty malts, with cinnamon scents in the nose. Flavor is light toasted malts, brown sugar, light wood and some light nuts. Perhaps some maple and light chocolate malt flavors as well. Interesting, and if I had to make a guess I would put it at a brown ale, but it’s not exactly to style for brown ale. Perhaps it should be called a dark amber ale. Overall it’s OK, drinkable, and the only complaint really is a light vegetable scent I pick up at warmer temperatures.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - JUL 23, 2006
Bottle. Pours a root beer brown color with not much head. Aromas are this, something sweet, some malt, but nothing pronounced. Flavors continue that trend, watery, dull, not much going on. I was anticipating some robust flavors given the unexpected deep color of this alt but it did not happen. Thanks to Secret Santa (July) for the bottle.

I agree with other reviewers in that this beer is slightly watered down. I almost would compare this to a bock (shiner?) A very servicable beer and it does seem to get better with every bottle that I’ve enjoyed.

via trade with Beer_Hawk - Pours a brown color with a faint off white head. Very light carbonation. Very light sweet malt aroma and flavor. Also has a very slight nutty flavor. No real hop presence. A thin but smooth beer. Not real exciting, but worth a try. Thanks Steve.

Quixote18 (236) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JUN 18, 2006
Overall I would say that this beer is like the homely- but- cool girl at everyone’s high school...pleasant to hang out with but nothing to get excited about. Poured from bottle into a snifter this beer was reddish-brown and developed a short-lasting tan head. The aroma started out with a decent dose of chocolate malts, and then gave way to more toastiness. Medium-bodied, with a long sweet finish.

Ratman197 (9806) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 17, 2006
Bottle poured a clear brown with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of toasted malt, nuts and a hint of cocoa. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of cocoa, toasted malt, a hint of nuts and a bit of corn with a smooth sour/bitter finish.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2006
12oz bottle pours dark brown with a short creamy offwhite head that laces some. Aromas of light hops and roasted malts, some nutty flavor, and some earthy notes. Flavor is quite earthy as well, some roasted malts, a touch of pepper spice, and some yeast. Palate is medium bodied and airy. Seems it would be a good session brew. Also seems like something that would be produced in the SW and not Tennessee.

Aurelius (4175) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2006
Clear, darkish brown. Interesting nuts and hominy flavor. Moderately bitter, medium-light sweetness. Medium finish, which is corny. Dry. Fizzy. Food beer. I don’t care what the yeasting is, this is a Mexican Vienna in character.

Pint on tap at La Paz, Nashville. Dark red brown color with thin tan head. Nice malty aroma with some Saaz and corn in the nose. Sweet taste with some of the darker crystal malts influencing the flavor I think - bordering raisiny maltiness. I like the malt hop balance but could do without all the corn - despite it being a Mexican/European style. I want to try this in the bottle and pour it properly for myself- then maybe re-rate.
