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.

Presentation: 12 oz brown long neck with a freshness date notched. "A paler shade of ale." on the bottle.

Appearance: Tarnish gold in colour with a touch of chill haze. The head is bubbly and sticky all over.

Smell: A refined floral and sweet hop aroma, some esters come through also.

Taste: Smooth, clean and crisp. A prominent hop bitterness and a handful of veggie/floral hop flavour meet up to a rounded malt which runs sweet, a bit toasty and a little chewy. Some fruit (pear), grain and a dash of diacetyl in the background. A great hop finish from the East Kent Goldings and a little grain in the end.

Notes: More complex than it looks ... very flavourful but refreshing at the same time. A good dose of hops in this brew.

Serving type: bottle

Overall a pretty decent ale. Cloudy amber with a thin foam lace. Woody/grainy aroma, touch of veggies. Very crisp and grainy up-front, which is why I'd recommend that you let this warm up a bit and mellow. Light fruity pear flavour, very light sweetness. Ringwood yeast character fights with a thin layer of hops, and wins. Hops are herbal in character and soft on the palate, but there's a quick refreshing flash of zest that smoothes back down quickly. Finish runs dry.
