12oz single from Total Wine. Poured into a shaker pint glass...
A: Deep brown, with a buttery, tan head of creamy foam; a few initial patches of lace and although there is some really nice retention, that's about all it leaves; some garnet hues when held to light.
S: Sweet malt aroma... toffee, sweetbread, toast, banana(?); a very textured malt aroma; light butterscotch.
T: Malty... similar to the nose... plus some slightly roasted notes; dark fruit - could be a variation of the banana in the aroma; hop bitterness is minimal - the use of citra may add to the sweetness of this brew.
M: Medium-full bodied; high carbonation; nice lively and full mouthfeel.
O: A very drinkable 6% brown ale... Not the most robust one out there, but still tasty and different. Don't know if I'd seek it out - will probably stick with Anchor Steam! Still good, though.

Brekle’s brown ale (3.5, 3.75, 4, 4, 3.75)Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a medium brown color with a billowy tan colored head. The head has a nice level of retention, slowly fading to leave a bit of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell- The aroma of the beer is quite heavy of a sweet caramel and toffee aroma mixed with some light aromas of a roasted malt nature. Along with these aromas are some light nutty and chocolate aromas as well as a little bit of an earthy and herbal smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a sweet caramel and toffee flavor with a smooth roasted malt flavor. These flavors create a base for the beer lasting to the very end. Along with these flavors so too comes some notes chocolate and some light hop flavors of pine and a little bit of earth. With a light nut that joins the taste at the very end one, is left with a smooth, moderately roasted, and sweet flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker and creamier side for a beer of only 6% abv. with a carbonation level that is slightly low. The thicker feel of the brew in combo with the lower carbonation give the beer a nice creamy feel and are great for the mix of roast, sweet, and nut flavors.
Overall – A very enjoyable brown ale with a nice sweet roasted flavor. Quite enjoyable.
