COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s a simple fact of life: bacon makes everything better. From eggs to ice cream, delicious bacon is turning up just about everywhere, Our uncommon contribution to this cured pork renaissance is the Bacon Brown Ale. This is a West Coast Nut Brown Ale brewed with toasted buckwheat and a generous serving of bacon-cured pork.

Headbanger (3311) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2012
16oz can 5/23/12 (Binny’s Downers Grove Singles Rack)-46° in Mug-Pours a dark brown with a huge tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, toffee, and a little bacon. Taste of the same with some hops. This medium bodied brew is not bad but with the name I was expecting a whole lotta bacon.

No bacon at all anywhere. Just a below average brown ale. Would have gotten a 3 but loses points for pretending it was flavored.

Smells like a brown ale. Has that cheap crappy cardboard flavor bad beers have. No bacon.

laiti (5699) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 12, 2012
Draught @ CBC ’12
Aroma is sweet and malty with hints of solvent – feels like a bad doppelbock. Flavour is dry with berries and malt. Also hints of solvent and contamination with lactic acid. Where is the bacon?

lusikka (6267) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2012
Draught @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012.
Pours a reddish brown colour with a thick white head. Aroma of toasted malts, nuts and some spices. Flavour of strong maltiness, nuts, spices, harsh hops and some fruits. Medium bodied, rough malty mouthfeel and a harsh, malty bitter finish. Not very balanced.

Jesterdeal (1887) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2012
Aroma of malty goodness with dark fruits and a hint of anis. Taste is pleasant with roast wheat, dark fruit and just a small hint of iron. Far less Bacon than I anticipated.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2012 Poured into an English pint from a 16 ounce can canned on 2-22-2012.

A: Beautiful clear mahogany body with a towering tan head that forms a plateau as the sides disappear. This is how beer should look.

S: Very much lacking, very bland with mild nuts and very slight salty pork come through but this is lacking so very much. I’m very disappointed.

T: Like the aroma, I am extremely disappointed. Very slight cured pork flavor at the end with a slightly salty mid-taste, nuts take over the rest.

M: Medium bodied, tastes flat.

O: This is a highly disappointing beer, I was expecting more pork flavor but this, or more flavor in general. This beer looks better than it tastes.
