Clown Shoes – Brown Angel

 

So, as I mentioned before – Clown Shoes doesn’t print anything on their caps, but their seductive label illustrations make for great photos!

I consider myself a “Brown Ale Girl”, so I was excited to see this “Brown Angel”, a Double Brown Ale,  in the store recently.  It’s roasty, almost to the point of a porter – but also super chocolaty with that smoothness of a mellow Brown Ale.  At 7%, this brown is considered a “double” and while not a real “summer” type beer, I really enjoyed it; it may even be one of my new favorites.

This 22oz is certainly enough to share with a friend, but once you taste it, you may want to keep it all for yourself.  Cheers!


Clown Shoes – Good Beer, Even Better Names…

 

Yes, I admit it, I picked up this beer mainly because of the name and the picture.  I chuckled to myself in the store when I spotted it, and couldn’t resist its charm!  The only down fall, is the cap is just gold – no imprint.  I’ll forgive them that though, as the label is so photo worthy!

If you haven’t tried a beer by Clown Shoes, you should.  This brewery seemed to come out of nowhere with their clever names and tasty brew – and I’m glad they did.

The “Tramp Stamp” is a Belgian Style IPA, using Belgian yeasts and still packing lots of hop flavor.  It was a bit citrusy tasting, brewed with a little bit of orange peel – but over all it was pretty mellow and tasty.  The Belgian style yeast gives the brew a super bubbly mouth feel – one that I enjoy.

I’m into Clown Shoes lately, so be on the lookout for more pictures of their labels!
