Anchor "Brekle’s Brown"
Anchor Brewing Company - San Francisco, California USA
Brown Ale (ABV 6%)

[Suggested Glassware: Dimpled Mug]

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Aroma: 7/1
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a dark caramel brown with a large (3-4 finger) light brown sudsy head that lasted pretty much throughout, reducing slightly to a large cap and had good spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a sweet toasted dark bread malt, light resin hops and a doughy yeast along with notes of toffee, coffee, and dark fruit (plums).

The taste was lightly malty sweet with a pinch of toffee from the get go, progressing with a light roasty coffee presence and a mildly bitter hoppy ending. The flavor lasted an average time following the swallow, with a mildly roasty sweet fruity taste left behind.

Mouthfeel was almost medium in body with a thin dry texture and a mild carbonation.

Overall this was a very tasty and well balanced Brown Ale, which had a smooth and roasty aftertaste that just left you wanting another sip...
