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.

3.55/5  rDev -2.7%

Color is garnet brown, clear but dark, with an initially large tab head. Aroma is sweet floral, fruity green apple, buttery dough, and abundant caramel toffee malt. Creamy malts, toasty, and nutty. Taste is fruity, bright, yeasty with some brisk hop over caramel, and some smoke/roastiness. Mouthfeel is thin feeling, very liquidy, and seemingly not dense enough to hold up all the flavors. Pretty juicy actually. Overall not bad. Easy to drink fast and interesting aromas and taste.
