COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewmaster Mark Carpenter’s unique recipe for Brekle’s Brown—a tip of the hat to our first brewmaster—looks to both the past and the future.
Mark’s special blend of roasted malts, inspired by the all-malt brown ales in Anchor’s brewing archives, gives Brekle’s Brown its coppery brown color and its unusual depth of flavor—richness and complexity without heaviness.
For brewing and dry hopping, Mark has chosen a single, American hop variety called Citra. The subtly entrancing flavors and aromas of this distinctive new hop perfectly complement the unique maltiness of Brekle’s Brown.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, hops.

12oz bottle. Pours dark copper with a small head. Great hop aromas. Nice malt complexity with the biscuit and caramel flavors. Great citrus tangerine hop flavor to finish off with. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

al53 (94) - FINLAND - NOV 13, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2014 Bottle. Copper brown colour with small head. Very hoppy citrus aroma when oppening the bottle, in glass comes milk chocolate, chocolate cake, hint of coffee, bit alcohol, caramel malt. Creamy and oily mouthfeel, medium+ bodied. Bitter, sour, roasted malty taste. Wet wood, nuts, syrup and bread. Aroma is better than taste. Hoppy, bitter and dry finnish. Very strange jumble.

rok1024 (1270) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - NOV 12, 2013
Almost clear deep red, amber, brown appearance with medium head. Roasted malt and caramel aroma. Medium sweet, smooth taste, well rounded. Very good brown ale beer.

MarkoNm (1744) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - NOV 11, 2013
Comes with a dark brown color and a very small tan/dirty head. The aroma is sweet along with some maltiness. There is also some chocolate which is very gentle, but without the roasted aroma often accompanying it. Taste is bitter, roasted and bitter, although not so much so in the finish. The bitter aftertaste stays with you for a long time. All in all, a nice brew, not strong and very drinkable.

Defreni (2860) - Husum, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2013
Flaske> Brun roedlig let diset oel med et fint skumhoved. Dejlig duft af citra der giver en krydret duft og et pikant tvist til smagen der virkelig er frisk og laekker. Praecis som en brown ale skal vaere.

high_on_hops (795) - Burlingame, California, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Pours a nice chocolate brown color with a tan head and lacing. It has a mild aroma of sweet, dark malt with some earthiness. The flavor is sweet malt up front that survives all the way to a sweet finish over a medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maltman53 (433) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Pours dark tea color, vinous, copper penny nose (maybe the bottle picked up oxygen along the way), medium-bodied malt backbone, generally a nice beer but unremarkable in style.

Gorgeous chestnut pour with a tan head and lace. Fruity, malt and hop aroma. Chocolate malt flavour with toffee and bitter hop finish. Very nice beer.
