3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
First impression seemed very thin, but after warming up it had some nice roasted flavors along with spice and some nuts. little bit of hops. says citra hops but i didnt detect a lot of hopping. really thin for a 6%, even looks thin and has a small wispy head and clear light brown appearance. american brown ales are kind of weird and i dont know exactly who keeps buying them since beer snobs dont care for them. this one is a good example of the style though so i’ll give it some points for that. but i dont see myself getting a 6 pack of it, well, ever

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark brown with copper highlights and a rocky tan head that shows great retention. Aroma is very nice, sweet brown sugar and breadcrusts, hints of fruit. Nice malty palate, dark and sweet, with a very dry bitter finish. Certainly tasty, yet marred considerably by over carbonation and a hard mouthfeel. Some metal in the finish.

allllllllllright???? .. when i first heard of this, i really wanted to try this- but now thats its open and in front of me, not to happy .. . odd smell, like berry and old raisins .. . medium headring .. light lacing .. . hank hill is such a bitch .. . light mouth, good in that sense .. . some molasses, light berry skin, and a slight offness- not good .. . this was a huge letdown .. . i know anchor as being not spectacular at anything but always solid- this was crap .. . . I stayed up all night to see where the sun went. Then it dawned on me.

Sample from a bottle at Microfest 2012. Pours a somewhat hazy chestnut color with a big, frothy off-white head. Notes of hazelnut, caramel, brown sugar, citrusy hops, wet tobacco leaves, and sweet bread. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a soft, bready mouthfeel that ends with a dank leafiness. Good brown.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Brekle’s Brown has a very thick, creamy, tan head and a clear, bubbly, brown appearance, with some lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, brown bread and a flash of hops; the taste is likewise of sweet brown bread, brown sugar, mild hop bitterness, and some caramel candy aspects. There were even some chocolate notes with this one. Mouthfeel is medium, and Brekle’s Brown finishes refreshing, semi-dry, and easy drinking. It’s a most excellent beer. RJT
