Itís 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.

16oz can pours a slightly hazy brown color with a thin off white head that leaves light lacing. Smells of caramel, salt and toasted malt. Tasted the same. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with light carbonation. Pretty disappointed in this bland beer. More salt than bacon in the flavor. Not worth the price in my opinion.

Arayaga2 (1945) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Semi-opaque brown with little to no head. Aroma is basic brown, with very little smoke evident. Taste is brown with bitter phenolics, like cheap liquid smoke. Overall, not much smoke or anything else character, but it does have a worty aftertaste. $3/pint-can

exeter (482) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 28, 2014
No bacon really. Very malty, slight smoke, and slight slight salt. Slight hops. Way too thin. For a bacon beer, it should be thick and greasy and oily. Good coat on the tongue. Great brown ale, but no Bacon

Rating #966 - February 10th 2014 - First #BOTW at Coop (bit of a flub, only got two flats and they were gone the first day, so more like a #beerofthesunday - $4.29 CAD for a 500mL tall boy can. Pours a rich nut brown colour. Aroma is a little bit of smoke, mostly dark roasty notes, mild coffee, mild cocoa. Palate has more depth, get the rich smoky cured notes from the bacon and lots of pleasant sweetness, caramel, nuts, and a delicate bitterness. Awesome start to #BOTW.

luttonm (3416) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Tall can in Seattle. Dark ruddy brown, soft tan foam. Odd beer- this really doesnít work. Sour malt aroma, no smoke. Creamy under developed body, sweet cream. Nothing crisp, dry or smoky. Not a good brown ale, nothing bacony either.

Theydon_Bois (14316) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2014
Keg at the Euston Tap, 22/01/14. Dark chestnut brown with a big old beige head. Nose is toffee, subtle smoke, oatmeal tones, biscuit. Taste is fairly sweet throughout, toffee fudge, bubblegum, less of the smoke, brown sugars. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, sweet closure. Ok offering, a little overly sweet and sugary, lacks depth for 6.8%, would struggle with more than a half of this.

andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
Pours a sorta semi clear brown with a massive beige head that leaves average lace up the glass. Aroma is caramel, light smoke, brown sugar, mildly nutty, and yeah actually slightly bacon like though I donít think I would have come to that without knowing. Flavour is brown sugar, nutty, caramel, mildly bitter, fizzy, moderately over carbonated, kinda salty, a touch acidic(possibly Carbonic acid), and mildly smokey. Interesting idea though an average result.

sulawang (774) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2013
Visual: Comes in an aluminum tall can like all their other brews. Pours cloudy brown with a lasting creamy head, lacing, and lots active streams. Nose: caramel malts, brown sugar, but just a hint of smokiness. (2)-aromatic strength. Attack: incoming acidic caramel malts, fizzy/creamy Mid-palate: alcohol detection, (MAIN) roasted caramel malts, brown sugar Finish: (6)-sourness, (2)-mild meaty saltiness, (5)-hoppy bitterness. Summary: A decent drinkable brew but it doesnít have much bacon flavour that it advertises. (Note: numbers above are on a 10-point weak-strong scale)

Canned 09NOV12 Itís a light brown on amber with a near solid sheet of fine light tan foam. Brilliant clarity. Smells of some urine, a little tallow and some sweet malts. Really unappealing nose. Flavor is grain, bitter, some bread, some biscuit and toasted malts with a hint of coffee. No real bacon flavor. Medium on thin for the style with moderate carb. Really nothing I can find particularly appealing about this beer, poor execution.
