Dos Perros Ale

The next few posts will be about beer experiences I had last week in Nashville. Most were good, and one was tainted by my not being chosen as cellar man at Boscos, but that is a story for next time. A sad, sad story. Dos Perros Ale from Yazoo Brewing Company is a beer in the style of Mexican beers such as Negra Modello (which I love) with it’s roots in the old Austrian brewing traditions. My first impressions that it smelled like Fat Tire, a little yeasty and earthy, but in a positive way. It is medium brown with light carbonation and a minimal, quickly dissipating head. As I said, there is yeast in the bouquet, along with a touch of coffee. The texture is light, smooth and a bit creamy. The flavor is mild and follows the example of the bouquet with yeast, mild coffee, lightly sweet caramel and a lightly hopped finish. It is very quaffable and I could see it going well with some chicken enchiladas, blacks beans and rice. 65/100
