COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

ben4321 (3916) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Location: Draft at Brass Rail, 1/15/13

Aroma: Lots going on, with roast, yeast, some spice, chocolate, and caramel, among other things
Appearance: Pours a unclear brown color with a frothy, lasting, beige head and heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is much like the nose, with a lot going on between the malts, yeast, and spice
Palate: This one has a medium-plus body, it drinks fairly creamily, with a tingly finish
Overall Impression: I thought this one was pretty solid for sure. It had a bunch of different things happening, and all the components may not work perfectly together, but they work together pretty well. Interesting beer.
