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.

DocLock (9709) - 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.

Palme (3948) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2016
On tap @ Nedre Foss Gaard. This is a near clear really deep ruby colored one, not too much of a head on it really. It smells like a sweet bock that has been blended with sweet licorice, some cardboard and a little herbs. Not too bacony really. Mild gliding in the mouth and it’s somewhat soft on the carbonation. Prickling I’d say. Again, bockish in the taste. No real traces of the promised bacon here. Dark caramel sweetness and a little ripe plum. Not what the cake promised, but it’s definitely a drinkable, slightly dull one. 29.05.2015

daje (3795) - NORWAY - APR 10, 2016
On tap at Nedre Foss Gård, may 13th 2015. Copper colored body with a small head. Aroma of licorice, herbs and toast. Taste of burned caramel, earthy hops, medium bitterness. Bacon? You’ll have to search hard for traces of it, seems they forgot the "generous serving of bacon" in my glass.

tricksta_p (3261) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2015
Can at BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Aroma of malt, caramel, nuts, some dark fruity notes, hint of smoke, hops. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet with a moderate bitter finish. Medium bodied. Certainly an enjoyable Brown Ale, but where’s the bacon I was promised?

Draught @ BrewDog Gothenburg. Pours tiny hazy dark reddish brown with a small frothy brownish beige head that leaves some thick lacing on the glass. Smell is malty, tiny fruity and tiny smokey with sweet bread, caramel, chocolate, dried pine needles, moist soil and orange peal. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter and slightly malty. Mouthfeel is soft, round, tiny astringent and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with caramel, toffee, moist grass, dried pine needles and orange peal. Fairly solid brown ale. Bit on the sweet side.

Vestergaard (1588) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2015
From can. Pours a clear brown with a small, off white head. Aroma has caramel, malts, slight hops and maybe hints of bacon. Taste is more smoky with some toasted notes to it. Fairly sweet. Not much bacon i think, but still a simple and nice brown ale. Average to high carbonation and a semi-full body.
