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.

dcschiller (2201) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 26, 2011
(22oz bottle from Total Wine Desert Ridge). Pours a clear (when held to light) dark brown/mahogany color with chunky 2 finger tan head that leaves some lacing. Active carbonation. Aroma has some nice chocolate, caramel along with some pine and citrus. Taste is semi-sweet with some light, but up-front bitterness that is almost smoky. Thin bodied with an oily texture. Bitter finish. Not bad at all. I wish it were a tad sweeter, but it still works for my tastes.

auerbrau (3126) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - JUL 24, 2011
22oz Bottle, purchased at Wakeful Liquors - Wakefield, RI. Mingled hop and brown malt aroma. Flavors get a little confused. I think this solidly qualifies as an American Strong Ale. I don’t think there’s much wrong with it, but I don’t think it succeeds at being a happy American brown, because the hops get lost and the dark malts are almost acrid overcaramelized. Otherwise, clean. Entered from my mobile device.

Bottle at Ølbutikken. Clear orange brown coloured with a small off-white head. Fruity aroma of hops with notes of hops and roasted notes. Fruity flavour of hops, grass and dark chocolate. Dry hoppy finish.

beerbastard (639) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 23, 2011
I really like this. Interesting label, too. Earthy like hop nose with dark surgars. Toasted nut like flavors. Also has mild burnt cocoa taste going, with a tasty hop flavor balance. Dry roasted finish. A Brown beer with good flavors.
