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.

ccex (1177) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2012
22 oz bottle pours a clear brown with big frothy tan head and good lacing. The label looks more like an early 1970s album cover than a beer label. Nose has banana and grapefruit. Aroma is quite different and fairly complex: lots of nuts and roasted or caramel malts. Taste is neither sweet nor bitter; I can detect a little brown sugar and some hoppiness. and body is at most medium. Slight carbonation and slightly slick mouthfeel, but easy to drink. I enjoy porters and stouts, so this was an unusual and good one which I will revisit.

ChainGangGuy (4714) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - APR 19, 2012
22 ounce bottle - $5.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Bottled 1/2012.

Appearance: Pours out a deep, dark medium-brown body beneath a tall, foaming, light tan-hued head.

Smell: A central deep breadiness, fairly toasty in the scent, streaked by hoppy notes of spice (white pepper), florals, and pithy tangerine peelings.

Taste: Bread, toasted grains sliding towards a roasty chicory-like taste given a thin layer of sprinkled toasted ground nuts. Near nil sweetness, though a very, very low hint of brown sugar that races by the tongue. A mix of florals and spice wrapped up in a big orange, tangerine-flavored bow. Moderate bitterness. Scant grassiness. Drying, bitterish, toasted finish with a light lingering hint of mint leaf.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel.

Overall: As expected, it was a hoppy brown.

TizzleJizzle (763) - Garland, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2012
Bottle at Big Texas Beer Fest. Aroma of coffee, nutty malts. Cloudy brown color. Has stout-like characteristics: roasted caramel, chocolate malts. Lingering taste on palate. Not a bad brew, just doesn’t taste like a brown

stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2012
22oz bottle. Light brown pour. Malty, nutty aroma. Nice, strong flavor of almonds, caramel. Bitter hop presence dominates the finish. I love strong brown ales and this is A Good one.

Martinus (4355) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2012
Clear dark red beer, beige head. Malty aroma, quite sweet, generous hops, coffee, roasted malts, bitter chocolate and ash. Sweet malty flavour, bitter hops, milk chocolate and mocha. Silky mouthfeel, Finish caramel and roasted malts.
Not your typical brown ale, but as it isn’t my favourite style, for me that isn’t a bad thing.
