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.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2009 Bottled from the first week of December, 2007. This is a hazy brown, much to my surprise. For some unknown reason, I just assumed this was a golden ale since I knew the other two Yazoo bottles were not. The aroma is nutty and caramely with hints at earth and even milk chocolate. There is a wax chocolate flavor along with corn, wheat bread, and something a little tart, but mostly this is a sweet, malty brew. hm. This is alright, especially for a supposed Altbier, but the corny finish doesnt sit well with me.

Bottle from the last week of August 2009. I keep trying to revisit this because I dont know what to make of it. I want to like it because it is a little different from the meager selection of beers at the grocery store, but in the end I think it failed to really impress me. The pour is amber with a small head. Aroma is corny with a faint sourness. The flavor is mild with a silky palate. This feels and tastes like a lager what with its vegetal qualities and strange sourness in the finish. So, this is not terrible but I think Im done with Dos Perros for a while.

Looks good enough in the glass pouring reddish amber in color with a dissipating beige colored head. Aroma is mildly malty with light dust. Flavor is enjoyable malty with just a bit of corn sweetness and a light spicy hop note. This would be a beer I would drink if it were locally available.

NicerInPerson (337) - North of Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 20, 2008
The aroma was malty and nutty with a toasty characteristic of Munich or Vienna malt. The aroma was lightly spicy with caramel and a crisp lager character. The beer poured clear amber brown with a low off-white lasting head which laced the glass. The flavor was nutty with a toasty aspect, again from Munich malt. Caramel was notable along with a light spicy hop character and a light fruity nature. The beer also had a slight bit of roastiness. The body was medium with a moderate level of carbonation. The finish was dry with lasting Munich malt flavor into the aftertaste and beyond. A really nice Vienna Lager. Two bottles at Mortons in Nashville.

Pours a lovely dark tea with minimal head and a nice coffee aroma. Sweet to the taste and leaves a malty, maybe even chocolate flavor on the palate.

Bottle. Nice dark amber pour with a fairly decent head that fades out to a small ring. Smells very similar to a brown ale. Some brown sugar sweetness and breadiness. Very smooth malty taste that I wasnt expecting with this. Hell, this is a damn good beer.... I could easily session this beer with no problem at all. I have had two Yazoo offerings now and Im pleasantle surprised with both of them.

12 oz. Huge creamy head that rests atop a clear, dark copper-brown body. Aroma is nut, grain, cocoa, and dry hay. Flavor is a balance of cereal, toasty nut, dry cocoa, light herbs, a sourish tinge, and some malty molasses. Smooth palate has very little tingle and finishes with a slight dry note. I think this is mislabeled as being 3.5% abv (seems more like 5-6%), but is highly sessionable due to the great balance. Flavorful and somewhat unique tasting beer that seems a good hybrid of lager and ale.

troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2007
(Tap) Pours an even brown color with very little head. Aroma of light caramel and toffee. Taste includes notes of grain, grass and medium-bodied malts. Medium mouthfeel for an altbier. Moderate fine carbonation as well. This was a pretty good beer, but generally unexciting.

Courtesy of Quake1028. Pours brownish with tan head. The aroma has lots of malts with caramel mixed with lightly roasted malts, some chocolate malts and also faint dark fruity esters. The flavor has an array of mild malt notes mixed with faint dark fruit, a bit of earthiness and faint floral hops. Nice.

Thanks to unclejedi for the bottle. The shocking beer of the tasting, I think all of us liked this one quite a bit more than the average rater. Light brown pour with watery looking edges. Small white head with medium density, eventually making way to bubbly foam. Nose is wonderfull, chocolate malts, tobacco, leather, figs, ripe dark fruits, hops and toasty grains. Flavor is a bit below the aroma, but still very nice, with all of the components accounted for. Light to medium bodied, sticky palate. Sweet chocolate malt finish, medium-long in length. A very good beer, and massively underrated in my eyes.
