Brown Angel comes at you with three levels. At the heart the beer is layer upon layer of pure, delicious malt. Columbus and Amarillo hops add an intense hop presence while a final layer of East Kent Goldings delivers a delicate floral finish. This is NOT your old school brown, but a rather sexy American interpretation.

Hoppy browns donít always work but the balance of this one is nice. Chocolate and molasses are still out front with pine sap and grapefruit building in the finish.

22 oz. bottle, pours a reddish dark brown with a small white head. Aroma brings out toasted malt, a touch of dark fruits, and some oxidation. Flavour is similar, with bready malt, caramel sweetness, and toasted malt. Well-balanced and clean. Not overly intriguing, but itís solid.

Bottle from Kihoskh, Copenhagen - dark brown pour with beige head. Toasty and roasted malty aroma and taste, medium sweet with some caramel, toffee, light cocoa, nuts, prominent hoppy presence throughout compared to a normal brown, but this works for me.

Not too many brewers get the brown+hops thing right. This is pretty decent. Still prefer straight brown as the mix never feels quite right. Pours dark brown with clingy tan foam. Nice heavy malt aroma mixed with some fruitiness. Taste gets a little wonky with some grapefruit bitter on top of the malt backbone. Finish is pretty smooth, though somewhat dry. Not bad.

Honestly would probably like this more if it was a straight forward brown, but this has a pretty interesting taste with its flowery bitter bite. Willing to try it again, and recommend other brown ale drinkers.

Yep, yep, Iím digging this hop notched brown. It does have a spruce and herby bite, but it is a welcome punctuation. Quite hop forward for a brown ale, but I do believe it works. Serving size 22oz bottle
