3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Outback. The waitress said this was a German Pilsener called Angry Angel, so I don’t know if I had this one or the Angry Angel Kolsh. Whatever it was, it looked pretty much like a Bud...straw yellow, white bubbly head. Nice bit of spice and hops on the nose. Quite tasty for a light pils...bready, hoppy, and touch of lemon. Finishes amazingly smooth for the style with non of that skunky aftertaste you can get with a lot of pils. I’m a fan.

Poured a clear gold that was slightly off-shade with a bit of brown to it. Heavy carbonation. Almost non-existent head. Nose was just some slight malts. Very biscuit flavor with just a slight hop presence. Bit of an off flavor too that came across as tin or aluminum. Not overly complex but nice and simple. Would be a great beer on a hot day. Mouthfeel was light but that metallic flavor was a bit of a turn off.

On tap at Bean and Barrel. Translucent yellow with a thin white frothy head. The aroma is sweet and shows more citrus from the hops than is present in the flavor. The flavor is very nicely hopped which gives it an immediate flavor, also shows a nice sweetness. The aroma is more fruity than the flavor and the flavor is more dry and waxy than the aroma. Overall it is a well hopped and flavorful pilsner.

Growler, from brewery. Good aroma. Sour. Grassy, skunky, lemon, hint of pepper. Clean lite orangy gold color, good head that faded quickly to a ring, then nothing. Bitter flavor, like aroma, more fruit, got a little apple & pear, cereal too. Lite body, creamy smooth mouthfeel, bittersweet finish. Well, not usually a pils kind of guy, but this one was hitting the mark for me. Brought this to a May 5th party, but I was the only one who drank it. Was easy to drink. Liked the fruitiness that came out as it warmed.

On draught at Milltown. Poured into a pilsener glass. Nice. This beer was really nice and just what I needed on this night. Pours golden with fluffy white head and lacing. Dirty hops predominate the flavor with subtle cereal and grainy outbursts. Still a nice pils. On tap with the style. Glad to see Big Boss making a name for themselves.

I was expecting something called "Angry Angel" to be some sort of Abbey Beer or something like that, so I was a bit surprised when it was a Pils. But It was a very tasty pils, with smooth corny flavors meldiing nicely with a crisp assertive hop finish. Sampled at 2007 Hickory Hops.

The aroma was fruity with a citrusy hop character and a lightly spicy and perfumy hop presence as well. A light caramel was present to complement the hops. The beer was very lightly hazy with a golden color and a persistent head which lasted to lace the glass. The flavor was nicely bittered with a spicy and lightly citrusy hop flavor. The malt was nicely accentuated with spicy and light menthol hops. The body was medium and the carbonation was moderate. The finish was nice and crisp. A nice pils, a bit fruity, but extremely easy to consume. Pint at Horniblows.
