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.

TheBeerGod (5045) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2011
Bottle. Ruby brown pour with a sticky, foamy beige head. Nice lacing on the tulip glass. Aroma is that of dark bread, chewy caramel, sweet malt, and spicy hops. Taste is much hoppier with spicy and floral hops being in the foreground and the caramel, sweet malt, bread and fruit notes being in the background. Body is medium with a moderate, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more caramel, chewy malt, toasted bread, dried fruit, floral hops and spicy hops.

harrisoni (12674) - 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.

Glouglouburp (5929) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 24, 2010
In short: An earthy, nutty and hoppy brown ale. Decent beer.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh a few days after purchase.
The look: Dark amber body topped by a large beige head with good retention
In long: The strong nose is toasted, nutty, peppery and woody hops. Taste has earthy caramel, tree bark, black pepper, woody hops, toasted nuts. Bitter finish with a wooden signature. Body is creamy and fluffy. Carbonation is very strong, maybe a bit too much so. Far from clean and crisp, this beer feels kind of dirty. I love clowns. But whoever said laughter is the best medicine clearly never had haemorrhoids.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 16, 2011
22oz bottle from a trade on BA - thanks! Nice caramel brown pour with a very appealing creamy head. Looks well wrought and the nose is pretty nice too, soft malts and some sharp spicy hops to boot. Mouthfeel is medium, with a touch of heat and a semi-slick finish that allows the sweetness to come through. Hops come across as a bit paper in the taste, combining oddly with the molasses notes I also detect. I do enjoy it qua hoppy brown but something about the leathery quality of the whole left me less than fully satisfied.
