COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Aroma has nuts, dark fruit, coffee and a little metallic tinge. Flavor starts sweet and nutty, with some roast coffee bitterness in the finish. This is the first beer from Clown Shoes I’ve tried, and I’ll definitely try more.

22 ounce bottle, bottled 7/11. Served in a mug, the beer pours a dark reddish/brown color with a half inch tan head that stayed around for a little while. There’s also a good amount of lacing. It smells like toasted malt, brown sugar, toffee, nuts and some citrus. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like nuts, toasted malt, caramel, brown sugar, and some floral and citrusy hops. There’s a slight bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, with there being a moderate amount of carbonation. I think it’s a decent enough brew, a buddy of mine picked this up for me on a not so recent trip out of town so it was nice to try it. Hopefully next time I’ll have a fresher bottle.

Cerveza con buen aroma y sabor a café que se me hizo algo pesada. Muy densa para mi gusto.

New bottle from Gregg Berman. Thanks a lot for replacing this! A: The body is chestnut brown with gorgeous crimson highlights. The head is an inch thick and appears light tan or beige in color, with superb retention. As the head slowly recedes it absolutely coats the glass in a thick sheet of lacing. A remarkable appearance in all facets. S: The aroma is a balance of malts and hops, with mild bitterness in the nose. T: The taste is initially bready and malty, followed by a pleasant hop bitterness that gains presence near the finish. The beer is well balanced, and has more of a hop character than I am accustomed to in a brown ale. Well done. M: I particularly enjoyed the feel of this beer. It was smooth on the palate, with alcohol content well disguised. Malt and light roast, followed by a tangy, bitter hop finish, and lingering aftertaste. Again, well done. D: I would definitely drink this again. Thanks Gregg! Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-04-2011

Beerenberger (1601) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUL 31, 2012
APPEARANCE: A dark brown pour with a fluffy tan head which depleted rapidly and a little lacing. AROMA: The nose is rich malt and perhaps a hint of dark fruit and brown sugar. TASTE: This a hardy brown ale. The initial taste is roasted malt followed by a blast of hops. This is not an over-the-top hop but a nice complement to the malts. There is in fact a hint of floral in the aftertaste. MOUTHFEEL: The mouthfeel is medium to medium-full. OVERALL: This was a really nice brown ale with a standout taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thepeter (326) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2012
Hazy dark brown with a bumpy fluffy head that slims down to a film and leaves some decent lace but nothing too pretty. Smells nicely of pine, hops, and some pineapple sweetness and then later on the maltiness appears which was nice and created a better balance. The taste was a also nicely balanced between the hop/pine flavors and the nutty malty and hint of fruit flavor along with a dry wood flavor which I got more towards the end adn in the aftertaste. Very nice moderate carbonation and medium bodied. Really easy to drink and nice example of a style that is not overly popular.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2012 65cl bomber @ Delirium Hoppy Loft courtesy of and shared with Ronny (rlgk). Brune, col beige café au lait. Arôme malté grillé, houblonné avec un profile levure laissant en retrait des pointes de houblon citronné. Palais, malté grillé voire café restant dans le bon style des brunes américaines, le tout conserve une pointe de grains et sec en fin de bouche. Le tout est complémenté par un profile houblonné profond laissant pas mal de belles notes citronnées donnant un clin d’œil à des houblons européens.
