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.

1 pint can. Pours a clear red/dark brown hue with a fluffy off white head. I get a sweet buckwheat aroma but not alot of bacon. Big buckwheat flavour in this beer and as it warms in the mouth i get that meaty (bacon) like flavour on the back of the tongue. Nice beer but not overly complex.

Can from IBS. Served at 4 degC. Aroma upon opening, slightly roasted malts & anise hint of smoke (as i read the label) Pours with a medium head consistent med/large bubbles, which lingers through 2nd sip. Gradually fades to strong lacing around edges. Also sharp but mellow bitterness. Anise & bitterness mellows & roasty subtle sweetness shines due to excellent body & mouth feel. Smooth & subtle biscuit malts follow. Hint of dill fronds compliments subtle sweetness. As it warms hint of alcohol is noticeable. Slight sweet smokiness. Serious food pairing possibilites; bacon, smoked salmon, porcini mushroom, vegimite, parmesan & soy. To the kitchen!

Color: a deep redish brown. Aroma: nuty with mild smoke notes. Overall & taste, a well balanced nut brown ale with a silly name, missing the bacon thing not realy a smokey beer that you would expect from the name but a good beer over all.

Weird name for this beer. It really is a mutt of a brew, not so much a brown ale and no bacon anywhere to be found.

DocLock (8421) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Pounder can from Blue Dog. Pours clear mahogany with big 3-finger tan head. Nose is vienna malt, earthy brown sugar, perhaps a bit of bacony nose, some hops, and mild smoky wafts. Tastes a bit sweet, with vienna malt, some brown sugar, rauchy notes, and a solid complexity. I don’t get much salty or bacony flavor here, but there is a palate complexity element that is unmistakeable. This one is interesting and very quaffable.
