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.

On tap at Monsters of beer 2011. Pours a dark amber with a small frothy off white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is a raisin malt and chocolate. Medium mouthfeel with sweet caramel malt flavor. Easy to drink a very good brown ale from Clown Shoes.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep, thick and lively amber with a chunky beige head. Aroma is autumn-harvested hops with light chunks of earth on them. Flavor is a thin ribbon of coffee in a glass of roasted malt and nuts with swirls of hops. Autumn-esque in the finish. Average mouthfeel. Not usually a fan of brown ales but this one ainít bad.

Leighton (13373) - 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.

ApisAles (1576) - 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.

maneliquor (3393) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Over carbonated pour. Chestnut brown body with a huge, frothy off white head. Nose is very nutty which is perfect for a brown ale this big. The main feature though, is caramel biscuit and light floral tones. Very nice nose to it. The large dose of nuts is portrayed in the taste with a lot hop bitterness coming into play. Toffee underneath it all. Nice. Would be great if it wasnít for the oxidation
