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.

yngwie (13104) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2011
Bottle, 22oz. A big, dense and rocky head, beige in color, forms over a more or less clear dark amber body. Roasted malts, some sourish notes and a nice hoppyness in the aroma. The flavor has a distinct coffee flavor, along with bitterness, pine cones, some chocolate and and roasted notes. Full-bodied, too carbonated and semi-dry. Mostly bitter finish with chocolate and roasted malts. A really pleasant brown ale. Could drink more of this. Several times. 111112

SpringsLicker (3108) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 10, 2011
The bottle opened with a gush and intense foaming ensued. Poured quickly, the glass filled with an off-white head that slowly settled down to form a dense dark brown body below. Rich, roast malt aroma, nutty and toasted malts. The flavor is a mellow version of this beer’s aroma that has added in, a hop dryness. A well crafted beer, but I would prefer less hop presence.

Sammy (8347) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2011
Bomber from Premiere. A sweet aroma. Enormous soapy head, lacey. Long bitter finish. In a word: nutty brown. Very drinkable Hops and malting is so balanced. Better than its rating in the sense that I would serve this regular to people if available down the street. Great for the style.

HoppyAlesToYou (156) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Caramel, chocolate, nuts, toast, floral, spruce, and earthy scents treat the nostrils. It filled my dimpled Hofbrau mug a deep brown, topped with rocky tan head. The taste enforces the aroma, with mild sweetness followed by mild bitterness. About as fine a brown ale as I have tried.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Pours a hazy dark brown color with golden orange edges and a 1.5 finger light beige head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Spots of lacing left behind. Sweet malt aroma that’s slight roasty with a prominent chocolate presence. There’s also some caramel, toffee, toast and hazelnut. In addition there is a strong floral hop character. Slightly earthy and resinous with pine, buds and grass. Nice. Medium bodied with a blast of dry earthy hops which are slightly dry and bitter but not overpowering. The floral hop flavor lingers over the sweet notes into a subtle dry finish. Underneath there is a prominent silky malt character with lots of chocolate flavor. Slightly roasted with caramel, toffee, toast and nut. Pretty complex and decently balanced. The hops could be toned down a bit so that the malt character can shine but other than that it’s pretty good.
