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.

Dark brown with cream head on the pour. Nutty malt aromas linger throughout. A mix of bitter and smokey nuts flavor and a clean dry light hoppy finish.

demitriustown (1104) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Bomber: Aroma has got nice malt texture and a big hop note as well. Appearance is brown with a tan head that diminishes slowly. Taste has got a nice roasted toasted malts with a decent punch of hops to back that up. Palate has got malt notes in the after taste, and medium to low carbonation. Overall, Really good stuff. Cheers!

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2015 Pretty damn fine gear here buster. Whopping hop jazz funk amidst the malty charms. A head big enough to mimic a bosom. Floral as claimed. Chewy toffee. Medium power bite. Norman this is a contender.

AirForceHops (3777) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 8, 2015
650 ml bottle, paid $8.99 at Tuckaway Tavern and Butcher Shop. ( Every single bomber at Tuckaway was priced the same no matter the style, very odd piece system) deep brown color with thin bubbly head and lace. Aroma is what I was expecting, burnt molasses, roasted nuts, chocolate and some light citrus hops.

The flavor is a carbon copy of the aroma. The texture has a nice creamy texture with a lingering sweet malt/ molasses finish. The bittering citrus hops make it pretty well balanced. Overall, very nice for a standard style.

Aroma is like a bakery, fresh bread, rye/pumperknickel/sourdough. Appearance: dark brown, tannish head. Looks delicious. Taste: caramel, some yeast, more Bread. Hint of raisin or some dark fruit. Very nice Feel is A little flat, muddy. Really nice brown ale. I’d buy this again.

decaturstevo (5307) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Brown pour with copper hues. Clinging off white head lace. Aroma is roasted malt, nutty, with a hinto chocolate. Flavor is light sweet chocolate malt, roasty, nutty, and a bito citrus zest. Medium bodied with good carbonation. The medium bitter lingers in a pleasent way for quite a bit. Nice beer all round.

kevinator (1117) - The Colony, Texas, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Decent nutty malt and slightly hoppy aroma. Soft brown color with a medium head. Hoppier than most brown ales that was balanced by a roasted and nutty malt base. Good and nice to see them go off their standard beers.

Dark brown pour. 1" white head. Sweet aroma. Nice balance between the malts and hops. My first Clown Shoes, not the last.

22 oz bottle at home. Pours a dark brown color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, chocolate, earthy, mild resiny hops, woody, some brown sugar sweetness, decent take on a style that is typically very boring.
