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.

HerrBierkoenig (1060) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 4, 2014
From bottle. Pours ruby brown liquid. Nice tan creamy head with small bubbles, that lasted. Gorgeous ale aroma, chocolate, caramel, cherry, candied fruits. Simply excellent. Medium body, soft carbonation, but very drinkable because of a bit sour finish. Taste is fruity sweetness, caramel, red fruit, nice acidity in the aftertaste. Excellent brown ale.

Zarkam (538) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 3, 2014
355ml bottle, dark copper colour, small mostly vanishing off-white head, little bit oflacing. Moderately malty roasty aroma with notes of caramel and nuts, moderate to heavy hops with a hint of lemon, notes of plum and cassis. Taste is initially slightly sweet and acidic, turning into a moderately bitter and slightly sour finish with a moderately astringent feel. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Very pleasant and drinkable ale that also has plenty of character

Hanoi (787) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle: Nose is strong malt leading to toffee, apples, leading to some citrus tones. Well balanced nose for a brown ale. Taste is malt, apples, through to sweet brown ale tones then a citrus IPA ish note before back to a brown ale. Very sweet in the finish. This was an interesting attempt to do an American style Brown Ale, but does not work for me.

tlind2 (1544) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle. Deep copper color, tan head. Washcloth aroma (weird). Homebrewy flavor with roasted malts and some coffee. Bitter coffee finish. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. I think I prefer the stuff I make myself.

Dark amber, little head or carbonation. Very malty without being sticky or sugary sweet. Some fruit flavor like tropic. Full flavored but not heavy, drinkable.

Draft at a tasting event. From notes. Citrus and caramel with a decent tropical fruit kick. A little bitter grapefruit in there too. Not too bad.

Pours a dark brown colour with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, malts, malts, malts... You got that right, this is a malty brew, with a slight presence of citra hop in the aroma. Noticed caramel, toffee and hops. Very enjoyable Brown Ale.
