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.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAY 8, 2011
(draft @ Tap and Mallet - Rochester, NY) Dark but clear brown pour with a thick tan head. Very bitter and citrusy aroma with some light nutty hints. Surprisingly hoppy for a brown ale. Flavor is nutty, sweet, malty and then incredibly bitter and floral at the middle with a dry and sweet finish of grapefruit.

Very roasted for a brown ale, almost like a porter but with the typical sweet brown ale malts

22 oz bottle from Julios Liquors. Pours dark brown with some garnet. Comes with a 2 finger off white frothy head. Aroma has a sweet side, caramel and toffee, and a bitter side, bakers chocolate with a hint of citrus hops. Flavor follows the aroma with the beginning quite malty and sweet with some hop bitterness in the finish. Palate is on the heavy side with a good amount of carbonation. This is a strong brown ale. It’s brown, sweet and powerful. Pam Grier where are you?

Dark brown with large tan head. Aroma roasted malt, cocoa, coffee. Medium body, no alcohol. Flavor also roasted malt and hint of coffee, nuts, a little hops in the background but those are mostly hidden. Quite decent.

Drake (11469) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2011
This rating is dedicated to Candice Alstrom, who really needs to re-evaluate who she is as a person. Served on cask at Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA, on 6/13/11. Pours a hazy brown color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus, dark malts and earthy, citrus hops. The taste is citrus hops, chocolate and some roastiness. Medium bodied.

TheJester (2374) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2011
650 mL bottle. One of the best browns I’ve tried. Looks and smells the part, and the flavour is rich and filled with nuts, chocolate and caramel. There are clearly some earthy Brithops in there, and there seems to be a touch of piney American hops in there as well. The only drawback is that the body could be a little fuller. Overall, an excellent example of the style.
