Now, I’ve never had any other Clown Shoes beers before, but I have had this one. I had it at Single Brothers Bar when I was washing TLD glasses (I use their dishwasher) and thought it was light and refreshing. It was a great beer. Plus, I love the brewery’s name. There’s some things I guess we need to cover. According to their carton, Clown Shoes says about this beer: We gook a light, refreshing German beer style and bastardized it. The atypical Kölsch is dry-hopped and has all natural mango flavor added. And it also says: Warning: This Beer is NOT Reinheitsgebot! which means that it’s not on par with the German Purity Law of 1516 and whilst I think the Reinheitsgebot is a fantastic thing, I like when people step out from under its “thumb.” I know this beer is fruity without being wimpy and it’s just a great drinker.
It’s only 5.5% so you’re not going to get blasted on it unless you chug quite a few in one sitting. BeerAdvocate rates the beer at 88 (Very Good) with no Bros Score. Untappd has it at 3.73 caps out of 5. RateBeer has it at 76 Overall, 92 in Style. That’s a bit of a contrast. Have you had this beer? What did you think? If you haven’t or just have a hankering for more, then head on down to City Beverage and grab your sixer. Tell them that its the beer of the week and get 5% off your order. Tune in tonight or tomorrow morning to hear what Caitlin, Danielle, Josh and I think of it!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“Founded in 2009, Clown Shoes is the result of a joke, spite, and a deep passion for craft beer. Naturally, we dislike clowns but find the shoes hilarious. They remind us of humor in life and to be humble. If you made it this far, thank you for reading the bottom of this package.” – Clown Shoes (bottom of the carton)
