A - Dark brown pour with a tan foam that foams high and settles fast. Patchy lacing in the glass.
S - Malty scent that is very earthy. A very simple smell that while it is nice, really doesn't offer much else.
T - Strong flavors of dark malt are the first thing that I taste. There is some residual bitterness, but it gave htis beer a bit of a feel like an ESB. A slight roasty feel is present.
M - Its an easy drinking brown ale, but tends to bee a bit too malt-forward.
O - This beer is both special and limited becuase of how simple it is. If you like a malty brown ale this is a pretty solid choice. But that's really all it has to offer.

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.
