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.

Welley_Alves (226) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - NOV 1, 2013
Ótima Brown ale da Anchor, de São Francisco. Cor marrom escura, media formação de espuma e aroma cítrico típico do lúpulo americano. Na boca corpo médio, com amargor característico do lúpulo usado no dry hopping, da varietal citra. Sobressaem-se ainda o malte torrado, com notas leves de caramelo. Final seco e amargo, lembrando herbáceo. Ótima breja! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

plaugher (272) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 27, 2013
12oz bottle into a Belgian chalice. Pours a gorgeous chestnut with a hint of garnet; not much in the way of head or lacing to speak of. Light hoppy nose with a bit of fruit and toffee. Flavour of malt and caramel with a hint of plum, as well as a very slight sour note. Average carbonation and light bitterness on the palate. Not generally a fan of browns, but quite fond of this.

ryecatcher (1033) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep chestnut brown, medium off-white head, decent retention and lacing. Nose is malty, with toffee, dried fruit and oranges, hint of vanilla. Mouth is more of same with a medium dryness and a good deal of carbonation, light bitterness in finish. Very nice brown, perfect beer to read Sleepy Hollow to and listen to the wind blowing outside.

Pailhead (5748) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy caramel, molasses, fruit, chocolate, and some citrus. It pours a hazy orangish-brown with a one finger beige head that eventually settles to a thin film. There’s a good amount of webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate molasses, lighter caramel, and a touch of chocolate. There’s a decent amount of fruit in the middle. The finish has light-moderate citrus with just a hint of roast. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, it’s a little too much on the sweet side for me with all the molasses.

ben4321 (4840) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from World Market - Houston Galleria, 10/9/13, Rating #3232

Aroma:The nose has roasted malts, sweet fruit, caramel, and brown sugar
Appearance: It pours a dark reddish-brown color with a frothy beige head and sheeting lace
Flavor: Tastes medium sweet, lots of caramel, some lighter roast and brown sugar, mild hops
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a smooth, slick feel,and a soft carbonation
Overall Impression: This is a pretty nice brown ale. There’s a nice mix of malty components here. It’s pretty sweet, and could probably use a little more hop balance, but it is a solid beer.

Not really a brown ale guy but this was fairly decent in that it wasn’t too nutty or roasty. No more thoughts.

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 1, 2013
Impressively brown in colour with hints of deep red. Fluffy tan head that sticks nicely. The hops dominate the nose at first whiff but take a back seat to fairly big roasted and fruity notes and a nice little nuttiness afterwards. The palate has a decidedly Belgian bent to it with lots of cooked fruit on top of some nuttiness and light hop notes.
