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.

Poured out of a bottle and a light head that was fizzy and disbursed rather quickly. It has a coffee/malt aroma with a watery coffee taste. I agree with an earlier reviewer that this is more of a nut brown ale that alt-beer

Pours dark copper with a small white. Nose is corn syrup, cherries. Not much else. Maybe some caramel. Smells to sweet. The taste is as the nose is, to sweet. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, the body is light finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not a giant fan of this one. Overly sweet, light brown appearance, strangely spiced. Had this from a bottle at the Beechwood Lounge in Vicksburg in Jan, 2013.

It’s rare to find a dark, malty beer that is still light on the palate and stomach. I like dos perros because it is my equivalent of a session beer for the winter.

Caytinator (894) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 16, 2012
12oz bottle. Dull brown pour, no head, medium adhesion. More of a nut-brown ale than an alt-bier in my opinion. High carbonation for the style, medium overall. Good taste profile, malty a little toasty and some toffee. average bitter aftertaste, a little dry. Not particularly interesting, I don’t know why you’d want to copy this style.

JMerritt (1767) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Bottled. Dark red-brown with a medium-sized light tan head. Mild caramel malt nose with some faint smoke atop fairly heavy copper metallics. Mildly sweet flavor with toasted malts, light cocoa and rye bread. Some straw and slightly soured wet grasses are apparent in the finish.

Watery, I didn’t enjoy it. Wasn’t refreshing like a good Mexican beer is. Not even as good as a corona

Caramel and roast aroma. Brown, amber with off white head. Malt, caramel, mild roast, mild coffee, and malt dominant. Decent balance, mild bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

deyholla (6483) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the Nashville Flying Saucer. Pours a clear amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a bread note that is backed by a hint of sweetness from caramel. Flavor starts with the same bread note but is joined by a deep sweet cookie/corn note in the finish.

Dark amber color. Very malt forward smell. Low carbonation. Very wide malt flavors ranging from light to medium roast with caramel.
