Anchor Brewing Co. Brekle's Brown

This bottle has been sitting in my shed since the new year.
Its a piece of Anchor brewing history apparently, inspired by the all malt browns ales from their history.

Its also in a typical Anchor shaped bottle of 650mls, its 6% abv and I paid £4.99.

Deep brown in colour, a creamy head that's pretty big to begin with but it settles to a nice finger height.

Rich and sweet aroma, brown sugar, and that's how its tastes also. The malts give caramel and toffee, with a sort of luxurious smooth quality and depth, reminding you of the best Belgian beers.
The citra hops give it a nice moderate bitterness, on the medium body with good carbonation, this is a great beer well worth picking up if you see it.
