Big Boss Brewing Co. - Angry Angel

This Kölsch style ale is year-round favorite from the hometown heroes over at Big Boss and is readily available throughout the Triangle.

4.5% ABV

Angry Angel has a light, golden straw color and cloudy appearance. A steady stream of small bubbles rises through it, but there's an absolutely minimal head, just a thin white froth.

This beer has an airy, light, yeasty aroma. It smells like a very fresh loaf of bread. After it warmed a bit, I was also able to pick out the honeylike scent of its sweet-floral hops.

Taste & Feel
A nice balance between a light, bready malt and subtle, floral hop. White bread and honey are the strongest flavors.

Not at all aggressive, Angry Angel has a light, crisp body and drinks very cleanly. It does have a somewhat bubbly tingle across the tongue and a dry finish, but isn't bitter and leaves almost no aftertaste.

Don't let the name fool you. This beer isn't angry at all. I suspect, however, that Agreeable Angel wouldn't carry quite the marketing punch. It's a nice, clean-drinking beer that will go well with a light fare, spicy food or even fruit.
