3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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

another entry from Anchor that leaves a bit to be desired. a decent brown, but for the money, there is better out there. flavor had a sort of skunky, dusty flavor in the front, like old dried out hops. not very pleasing. ill pass on this one next time.
