Clown Shoes Eagle Claw Fish Imperial Amber Ale
Clown Shoes Eagle Claw Fist Imperial Amber Ale from Al’s of Hampden. The beer pours a dark amber color with a frothy beige colored head that leaves some lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of caramel, tangerine, orange, passion fruit, and pineapple. The taste is bitter with tangerine, passion fruit, and pineapple. There is a toasted toffee flavor with caramel accents underneath it all. A bit of pine and pepper burn the back of the throat on the way down. The alcohol content is 8.0% ABV. This was a decent Imperial Amber Ale with plenty of bitter citrus flavors. It may have erred on the sweet side, hurting it a bit, but was a bit redeemed by the finish and lingering flavor.
