Final beer of the second Shrewsbury Bottle Share on 24th Feb 2014: cheers Paulo for bringing this brew along for the four of us the split.

A red hue to this amber bodied beer, on top a well tanned crown.

Intense floral hop nose with citrus notes in the background vying for attention with some semi-sweet molasses.

The hops carry on into the taste, again with a citrus undertone to the bitter, dry front: the malts creeping into the taste later and giving a mini balance to the otherwise prevailing hop content.

A good beer to finish on, tests your taste buds and leaves you wanting more: a very interesting brew, hides it's alcohol well within the flavours.

Tried this on draft for the first time at The Gibson in Brooklyn summer 2013, and then managed to find some outdated 22 ounce bombers at Wine and More in Cranston RI, X-Mas 2013. The bombers actually aged well but sadly they are all gone.

I really love this ale and wished that Clown Shews didn't retire it. The aftertaste is what made it so unique and different than any other product on the market. It almost tasted like a strongly brewed Lipton iced tea, with the perfect amount of alcohol.

The coloring was amazing looking at it through the glass. Like a cranberry red with a brownish creamy head.

I have been trying a number of other red ales since this one was discontinued such as Elysian Mens Room (which is great) and Maine Brewing company's Zoe (mehhh..), but clown Shoes nailed it with Eagle Claw Fist.

From what I understand it is a very delicate and unique blend of hops and yeasts, so chances of anything similar coming along again are pretty slim, but if you can find any leftovers grab them, you wont be disappointed.
