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.

harrisoni (14856) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2010
Bottle at ChrisOs ’Blue Ridge Mountains Of Virginia’ tasting. Red amber colour, thin beige head. Lots of intense high alpha hops. Hops are a bit harsh. Very good hops but harsh. Not much of a brown ale. OK. Needs more sweet malt to balance it.

Leighton (13576) - 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. Doesn’t blow me away, but it’s OK. Some lingering dirty, floral bitterness.

brokensail (12508) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 8, 2011
A: The beer pours a clear brown color with a tall tan colored head. S: Smells strongly of burnt rubber. There’s definitely some citrus character to it, so it seems at least a little bit hoppy. Maybe a bit of burnt bread. Just a really off, harsh aroma, though. T: Doesn’t taste very good either. Quite a bit of rubber on the flavor as well. Some toasted malt and charred malt. A little bit of booze. Maybe some earthy hop notes. M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: I hope that this beer isn’t supposed to taste like this because it was just awful.

Koelschtrinker (12188) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 30, 2011
Herber und hopfig-malziger Antrunk. Im Mittelteil führt die Malzigkeit, die frisch würzig und hintergründig schokoladig ist. Herb-schokoladiger Abgang mit deutlichem Hopfenanteil, gut! 11/11/10/11/9/11
