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.

ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - FEB 16, 2012
From a growler picked up at a whole food in Virginia. Aroma is pleasently malty with some light hop notes. Lots of good malt character. Flavor follows through with the promise. Malty but not overly sweet. Great hop balance. Really impressive brown ale.

Scopey (11759) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2012
Bottle shared with Leighton and James in Delirium Hoppy Loft. It pours very dark brown, with a thick beige head. The nose is molasses, pine, treacle and earth. The taste is caramel, pine, leather, leaf, earth, resin and some alcohol warmth, with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Not overly complex, but easy drinking nonetheless.

On draft at Good Beer. A very nice BA. It is malty and bready, but still effectively hopped. A good balance and a good taste.

Leighton (17767) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2012
Bottle shared with Paul and James at Delirium Hoppy Loft, Brussels, late on Saturday night (Sunday morning) during the pre-wedding celebration. Pours brown with a thick, off-white foam. Bit of toast and leafy hops in the nose. Decent flavor, medium sweet, with toast, dry caramel, bit of bread, mild dirt and leaves. Medium bodied with average to high carbonation. Mild dry finish, some toasted leaves, light cocoa and caramel. Doesnít blow me away, but itís OK. Some lingering dirty, floral bitterness.

Spelt (232) - East Kingston, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Has floral and light pine aroma. Pours a dark mahogany brown with a thick, lasting tan head. Has some coffee-like character but the resiny hops dominate in the favor. Not picking up much from the amarillo. Although an American brown, pushes towards a black IPA. Carbonation is a little prickly and strong. Medium mouthfeel. Bitterness in a fairly long finish.

SPDickerman (1119) - Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Pours dark brown with a large tan head. Smells almost exclusively like bready malts with hints of hop notes. Taste is sweet, malty, hints of chocolate, caramel, toffee, with a nice mild hop profile. Medium-bodied with a smooth, wet texture and very soft mouth-carbonation, Clown Shoes Brown Angel finishes with a nice, mild sweetness.
