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.

It tastes like a loaf of bread in a glass with some roasted coffee notes and goes down real smooth. A table beer as they refer to it BDG is amazing. I have had this beer with all sorts of food and believe it to be one of the best pairings for a lot of dishes.

Awesome brew! these guys continue to amaze me. Pours a nice thick medium dark head, the aroma and taste are moderate flavors of brown bread with subtle notes of caramel and roasted malts.I sense some citrus flavor hiding in the mix and a slight nutty flavor also. The mouthfeel is excellent. I very much enjoyed this brew and would purchase again.

Bottom Line: Carton Kicks A$$

Served on-tap at Little Town NJ in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours a very lightly hazy medium amber brown in color with some light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some moderate mahogany highlights. The beer has a half finger tall fizzy light tan head that reduces to a medium to large patch of very thin film with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of brown bread (toasted malts, caramel malts, and some roasted malts), herbal hops, and just a touch of citrus/lemon hops. Very light notes of nuts.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of brown bread - with notes toasted, caramel, and roasted malts. Light to moderate notes of herbal hops with thyme being most pronounced and just a touch of citrus/lemon hops along with light notes of nuts. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness are present though they fade fairly quickly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: This was an enjoyable beer that was pretty easy to drink though I think the description of the beer slightly oversold it. I would probably grab it again (had it on cask a number of years ago) but not a beer that I would consider sessionable.

From 04/03/13 notes. 14 oz. pour served in a pint glass up at Pony Bar on the UES in NYC. Have had most of Carton's beers and have wanted to try this one for a while.

a - Pours a deep amber-brown color with two inches of off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of toasted malts, nuts, light caramel malts, light fruity malts, and some roasted malts. More roasted notes as it warms up. Nice nose; lots of nuts.

t - Tastes of toasted malts, fruity malts, bitter pine hops, nuts, burnt malts, and some roasted malts. Not super hoppy but some light bitterness and pine hops in the taste that wasn't there in the nose. Pretyt nice.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Body is smooth and easy to drink.

o - Overall a very nice brown ale. Not my favorite style of beer, but this is a good example of one. Lots of nuts, caramel, and roasted malts in the nose with some bitter hops coming through in the taste. Easy to drink; could see this being good for people getting into craft beers or darker beers. Would have it again.
