The beer pours a reddish-amber color with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee and some light amounts of cocoa. The flavor is a little bit different. I get some hop notes (mainly orange and pine) as well as some biscuit and toffee. There is also a hint of grapes. Overall, the flavors just don't meld together too well. Low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Iam not sure what the label means but it dosen't matter I guess.Poured into an imeprial nonic a dull deep copper color with a nicely formed one finger off white head that settles nicely into a creamy mass.Big herbal hops along with brown sugar and caramel malts in the nose,it's a bit rough around the edges.Green herbal hops really stand out once again on the palate over top of a pretty dry malt base,a hefty dose of earthiness in the finish.This beer has alot of potential but seems to miss the mark a little,it's like an EPA on steroids.

Bottle from total Wine in Tampa. A Good amount of head. Smooth mouthfeel, bottled August 2012, but yet a little skunky. Likely why there were so many bottles of this and their IPA I noticed around the USA.
Still able to drink it and it was OK with food.

Bottled 8/12. Consumed 12/12.
A: Washed out orange pour sits a dense apple-orange in the vessel accompanied by a healthy 2 finger tall light tan head that was foamy, rocky, and incredibly well lasting. A good strong sign of visible effervese is noticed within. A thick, foamy band of lace smoothers the glass.
S: Strong pineapple and mango fruitiness upon uncapping and pour. Some passion fruit, pear juice with a hint of herbal wet grassiness.
T: The flavor was fruity with some tropical notes. Sweet citrusy flower, marmalade, fresh pear juice, mango is most evident. Passion fruit and caramel mix together nicely with some red grapes. Tropical greenery, fresh and wet, with a light mention of herbal appeal, pineapple and apricots follow with a nice complexity. Upon warming a touch of apple-pine hops come through. Bright and spicy hop usage, the british pale malts are crisp and lightly bready. Closing of spicy floral notes.
M: Mouthful provides a good tingle, medium body, gentle warmth of alcohol and hops shine though.
O: Overall a nice change up for a pale from the traditional american citrus hop bombs. Light, fruity, kent and fruggle hops? shine through more then other examples of british style pales. Crisp, bright hops, nice repeatability, let my glass be refilled many times over.

Pours a hazy orange-amber with a dense white head that settles to a squat cap. Clean aromas of crisp toasted malt, caramel, dry bread, and some grassy hops. Nice and uncomplicated. Taste is similar, more sweet malt, grain, candy, and grassy hops. Very drinkable, with a medium body, good carbonation, and very lightly bitter finish. Solid English Pale Ale, nothing new but very drinkable and quenching.

Let My People Go pours out a hazy orange-red color with a tiny head. The aroma has a strong toasty and caramel aroma along with some citrusy malts. The taste is excellent, this is fully an English pale with the toasty malt being the centerpiece, but Clown Shoes don't disappoint on the hop front, providing a full herbal bitterness along with some citrus notes. Very balanced and flavorful. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied with a sharp carbonation and a dry finish. The drinkability is very good. This is a great English pale ale with a bit of an American twist. I enjoy that the American twist isn't really on the variety of hops, it's just the amount instead. Very nice, and different from the rest of Clown Shoes' ultra-American hoppy stable.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a mug glass. Label reads “Bottled 9/2012”.
A: The beer is a cloudy amber color, with a short dense off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains light caramelized malts, a good amount of hops, some honey and some citrus.
T: The taste starts out bready with a hearty but not too heavy malt character followed by some sweetness from flavors of caramel, honey and some citrus. The hops presence is decent for the style and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.
M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, it’s a decent beer but there are better options in the style.

Pours a fluffy looking 1 finger head that fades at a med to slower pace, lots of lacing, somewhat hazy reddish orange colored beer.
Nose light grassy hops, little citrus and floral, juicy pale malt, touch fruity, light herbal grasys hop like, some caramely reddish candy malts.
Taste starts with big malts, not dark just a big malty flavor, reddish toasty caramel malts, little aromatic like malt flavor even, touch grainy, some sweet syrupy candy malts as well. Then hops, light fruity and a bit herbal grassy touch but barely. the fruity flavors really come through with the candy flavors. Finish is drier, semi bitter with more grassy slight earthy hops, more fruity flavors, and some caramel malts lingering.
Mouth is med bodied, decent but lighter carb.
Overall OK but not great. An average everyday drinking ale with more malts than hops, but a fairly balanced overall take, and a bitter finish. nothing special, nothing wrong either just doesn't do anything to really step up.
Quick added comment, increased the overall from 3.5 to 4 as it really changes and gets better when had with food. I'm eating chicken, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, and it goes pretty well with it.

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a hand glass.
A: Dark amber hue. Pours a 2 finger, tight, foamy, white head. Very persistent. Thick beer ring lacing.
S: Light floral hops. Not much else.
T: Light hops, and a little Italian spice.
M: Light and crisp. Steely finish.
Atmosphere is nice. Large, persistent head, and thick beer ring lacing. Nose is hoppy and floral. Light hop bitterness and a little bit of a spicy character. Overall, this is decent quaff.
