Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Many thanks to SammyJaxxxx for this can.

A - Pours a hazy dark amber brown color with a frothy white lacing ring and mild carbonation.

S - Earthy roasted malt aroma with bread crust

T - Earthy toasted/roasted malt, bread crust, some delicate lemon pops up more towards the end of the sip, and finishes with a long, lingering piney/citrus bitterness.

M - Medium body with some creaminess to the mouthfeel, leaves a wet mouth but a bone dry tongue.

O - Not a fan at all of Brown Ales but this one rates at the top of the heap, IMO. Nicely done and worth trying.

Had this on 2017-06-24 in Atlantic Highlands, NJ at the brewery on-tap

A - Fairly clear, ruby-brown with a 1-finger off-white head and mild lace.

S - Toasted wheat bread, caramel, earthy spice. Nice.

T - Toasted wheat bread, citrus flesh and zest, tarragon, caramel, nutty. Finishes with moderate bitterness and lingering light-malt sweetness.

M - Light-medium body and carbonation. Fairly dry finish.

O - Flavorful, a bit spicy yet balanced. I liked it from the first sip.

Growler, poured into glass.

Very clear, light brown in color, white head. Pleasant malty aroma- toffee, bread, cracker. Taste is fairly mild for a brown ale, mild earthy hops to balance the malt flavor. Thinner bodied, could have a fuller mouthfeel.

A: murky mixture light brown, burnt caramel, and a rich amber. Tan head that's no more than a film

S: brown sugar, caramel, candi sugar, toffee,lemongrass, fig, oak, and a hint of noble hops.

T: quite nutty off the start followed by brown sugar, caramel makes and a slight earthy bitterness. Toffee and a nice learthy flavor follow. Finish is malty with a touch of bitter on the back of the tongue

M: medium mouthfeel with carbonation level that is about medium as well

O: not bad. The sweetness is well rounded and I like that you can pick up the nutty flavors as well. A little more bitter than many brown ales though
