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.

Smells like someone farted on a cigarette after eating a lot of vegetables. Opaque brownish orange. Taste is Smokey, Ashy. Not bad taste. .. Aroma kills it."

Huge fan of this brewery but not this beer. Roasted malt character is out of balance for me, resulting in a rather bitter beer without sufficient balancing elements. YMMV of course but not my thing.

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.
