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.

Dark amber with bubbly beige head; aroma is rich and complex with roasty chocolatey and notes of hops on the fringes; Flava is equally complex with deep roasted malt with chocolate notes; feels medium slightly creamy and equally fizzy; MFN finishes long and roasty with hops coming out long after the swallow

ben4321 (3750) - 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.

gimmicky but i loved it. caramel and vanilla with a hint of chewy chocolate. married in such genuine fashion to a scratchy rye ipa. best brown ale i ever had. citrus, nice heavy enough rye malt "just getting along" it is not smooth. light brown with orange hue supremely satisfying and not to be missed!
