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.

served in brown 12 oz. bottle....

pours a hazy, orange color. nice creamy head on this one. looks good. smells of noble hops. nice hop aroma on this one. not a whole lot of maltiness, which is fine. fairly thin mouthfeel keeps this is in firm "session beer" territory. nicely aromatic hops don't hammer you with bitterness. the one problem is the aftertaste. i can't put my finger on it, but it just tasted very estery at the tail end. not dry or "clean" tasting at all, but a very drinkable beer.
this pale ale is definitely worth a try.
