Notes/Commercial Description:
B.D.G. (Brunch. Dinner. Grub.) Country Ale: Matching the right beer to the right food is a wonderful assignment. The contemplation of point and counter-point can often be as much fun as the reward of good pairing. Sadly, in a life well lived there is not always time to contemplate what dinner will be, let alone what beverage will play best with it. Here we have selected malts to evoke the crusty breads that sit well next to every meal and seasoned it with the lemony, tarragon/thyme notes of Aramis hops. A go-to, food friendly ale for the table. Drink B.D.G because you are what you eat... and drink.

Picked up a growler of this from Brouwerij Lane.

It poured a nice amber with a solid 1" head. Smelled malts, some rye, and a bit of smokyness. Taste was sorta like SN ruthless rye but not quite as hoppy. Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel. This is a pretty good session beer. Solid year-round beer from Carton. I look forawrd to their 1st limited release and hope them a prosperous future.

On-tap @ The Brass Rail in Hoboken, NJ.

Light brown color with a medium sized head and sparse lacing on the glass. Very dull aroma of bready malts and lemony hops. Flavor was better than the aroma suggested but had a musty quality to it that was hard to get past. Light bodied with a thin texture, it seemed like something was missing. Light sour finish.

Eager to try more by this brewery - as I have had good beers by them - but I don't think I would get this one again.

I had a few drafts of this beer at the Amsterdam Ale House over the last few weeks. I'd been hearing about the brewery, a new one in New Jersey, and was anxious to try it. Too bad it was a brown.

Appearance was quite cloudy, some carbonation but it didn't stick around for very long.

The aroma was bread, maybe a little bit of dark fruit and a slight amount of piney hops.

Flavor was pretty typical of the style. Medium biscuit, some fruit character and a slight amount of bitterness.

I'm looking forward to sampling some of the other beers from this brewery.

Appearance: 64oz growler filled from Beer City in Deer Park, NY poured into a pint glass. Colour is a dark hazelnut brown. Barely any head with a thin ring. No visible carbonation.

Smell: Lots of roasted malts, very nutty, and a hint of hops.

Taste: Surprisingly bitter flavour is quickly rounded out with bready malts. Has a little bit of an acidic aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium body offers a gentle, velvety touch accompanied by a modest carbonated bite.

Overall: A very average brew in terms of brown ales. While nothing is particularly offensive about it, nothing really stands out to me either.
