Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Fat Angel, rest his soul, had a complex palate that balances the rich pleasures of malt with the crisp refreshing flavor of hops with a finish that is fresh and clean. Eminently drinkable, Fat Angel brought divergent tastes together to create a satisfyingly smooth harmony.

Fat Angel was served from a 12 oz. bottle. In a pint glass, the beer was a rich honey brown color, and was topped by a fine sticky white head. The nose was delicate and nicely developed, with a zingy citric hop bouquet and a subtle sweetness. The taste was full-rich and somewhat sweet, with a citric-cereal malt base, limey accent notes, and a lightly bittered clean finish. The body was full and the carbonation was fine, working very well with the character of the beer. Fat Angel is a well-done, if somewhat sweet, pale ale that I would enjoy again.
