More people need to make good brown ale's in my opinion. I thought Brown Angel was great. The first beer from Clown Shoes I bought was this for nothing other than the artwork on the bottle but I became a big fan. The appearance is a dark brown with an off white head which sticks a bit to the side of the glass. The smell was very sweet with hints of chocolate and walnuts coming through. The taste was more subtle with roasted malt and barley coming through with a nice clean finish. The only thing I'm not a giant fan of is it's a little thin but easily overlooked. I love this beer because it's the beer that got me into Clown Shoes as a whole.

Pours a finger and half of light tan head on a brown body.
The aroma is extra nutty, roasted and toasted malt and a touch of lemon.
The taste is a well rounded roasted malt and chocolate flavor. There's some mild bitterness in the middle to balance it out.
The texture is smooth and soft.
It tends towards the sweeter side, but it's really good.
