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.

Bomber. Nose is nutty and chocolaty, roasty under a blanket of American hops. Pours dark brown with a sudsy, creamy large light brown head. Medium body, taste is semi-dry, pleasant roast with lots of woody, slight ash, nice nuts, and gentle warmth. Nice malt depth and richness, soft and yet mildly prickling, strikes a nice balance between sweet and dry. Floral hops with pine and light earth, light citrus and strong hop spice, only mild bitterness but tons of hoppy essence. Really wonderful balance in all its facets and probably the only brown ale Iíd repeat from a bomber.

ben4321 (4095) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Location: 22 oz bottle at Backstreet Cafe, 2/26/14

Aroma: The nose is malty, nutty, some roast, bread, brown sugar, fruit, and some hoppy notes
Appearance: It pours a dark reddish-brown color with a tan head and a decent amount of lace
Flavor: The hops come out more in the flavor, malty, roasty, and a little sweet, with a bitter close
Palate: The body is medium-plus, it has a smooth, roasty feel, and a pretty dry finish
Overall Impression: This is a really nice example of a brown with a good mix of malty components balanced out by a pretty decent hop bitterness. Good stuff.

Nsanders (568) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Tap at Pizza Luce. Red brown with heavy tan lacing. Tropical fruit and resinous hops, burnt sugar, and rubber. Taste is mostly bitter, atypical for a brown ale. Body is medium with strong carbonation. Not your usual brown ale, borders on IPA.

Brown ale with a bit of a bite, nice crisp roast grain bitterness on the finish. Dark brown, but clear, with tight beige head, good lacing. Aroma is roast grains and hint of molasses. Taste is mostly roast grains, burnt toast, wood. One of the better brown ales Iíve tried.
