B.D.G. (Brunch. Dinner. Grub.) Brown Country Ale: Matching the right beer to the right food is a wonderful assignment. The contemplation of point and counter-point can 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 brown ale for the table. Drink D.B.G because you are what you eat... and drink.

Draft at the brewery. Light Coffee, caramel, malt, peanut, raisin, fig. An interesting complex brown ale that pairs we'll with heavy food. I've had this before with pizza and wings. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The Sampler, tap: Pours light brown with an off-white head. Aroma is dark fruits, nuts, caramel, and a hint of earthiness. I donít know if it was the summer temperature or what, but I didnít entirely dig this beer. Everything seems to have been done correctly, but it didnít really come together for me. Somewhat sweet, lightly bitter, plenty of caramel.

They say they want it to be food friendly. That makes total sense to me. A lot going on but no 1 thing over the top.

On tap at Unoís for beer week. Aroma of almond, malt and biscuit. Pours dirty brown with a big frothy head. Taste is malty deliciousness with cookie, cereal, figs, and nuts. Just a perfect brown ale. Loved this one and recommend to all.

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.

jmm635 (957) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Poured light amber in color with a thick white head. Aroma of spicy, earthy hops with a touch of bready malt. A decent beer but unbalanced for the style in my opinion. Needs more "brown ale" characteristics.
