4.13/5  rDev +8.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.25

Pours amber with a small head.
Nose shows tropical fruit including melon and fruit confectionery alongside some sweet clean malt.
More fruity hops as flavours with big confectionery notes. Also a fair whack of sweet clean malt before an aggressive but balanced bitterness enters.
Could use more carbonation.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

When poured it has a dark reddish color body with a small foamy head. The smell has a grapefruit, fruity hop aroma to it. The taste has a citrus hop up front, then the a little bitterness comes into play. The mouthfeel is smooth and has a great hop flavor.

3.68/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a finger and half of head on a clear dark red colored body.
The aroma is a dank lemon and grapefruit and wet hay, all the in the best way.
The taste has a strong lemon bitterness upfront, loaded of malt in the background, but it's a hoppy beer.
It has a medium body with moderate carbonation.
Enjoyable.

On tap at Old Chicago Plymouth Clown Shoes tap invasion. Nice dark amber with a thinnish cap of foam. Heavy lace. Smells orange, flowerys, hay, grassy. Taste is crisp, lightly citric and floral. Moderately bitter. Medium body. Easy to drink and great flavors.

Bottle: a standard 355mL brown bottle with a typically Clown Shoes-esque craft label.

Appearance: a cloudy dark amber in colour with orange highlights. Big carbonation visible. A one-finger off-white head with good retention and fantastic lacing.

Aroma: a sweet aroma of bread malts and yeast, citrus hops and tea leaves.

Taste: big citrus hops with some earth bitterness. The sweet bread malts linger in the back too. A fantastic tasting lager.

Aftertaste: again plenty of hop bitterness coming through, but it is very sweet and well-rounded, unlike some AIPAs for instance. Very nice.

Mouth feel: a moderate feel with a big carbonation to carry the flavour. Sweetness up front, smooth with a dryness on the finish.

Overall: well-rounded flavours, a sweet and bitter hop with good malt backing. Add a reasonable price and that this is different to your normal grain lager; definitely one of the better lagers I have had to date.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Clown Shoes Swagger has a medium, off-white head, a hazy, brown-red appearance, and some light lacing left on the glass. The aroma is rich- sweet bread crust, tea, and hop oil. Taste is of sweet brown bread crust, tea, and floral hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium, and Clown Shoes Swagger finishes mostly dry, easy drinking, and refreshing. Well, it’s a rather simple beer and overly hoppy for a lager (a style issue), but it’s also very delicious.
