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.

Rating No.5100
Bottled 355ml. -from Za Popen’t Pivoteka, Ljubljana. Cloudy amber/brown coloured, small to medium sized pale beige head, malty and light touch of caramel in the nose. Sweet malty, dried fruits and caramel with mild notes of spices in the finish. Also some mild hops presence. Better than Humming Ale but not much.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 26, 2013
On tap at Mainstreet Tevern in Broken Arrow. A - Clear reddish copper color with 1 finger of darker khaki head. Average retention and excellent circles of lacing all the way down the glass. S - Sweet bread, strong citrus/tangerine aroma, brown sugar, bready caramel malts, T - Follows the nose with nutty sweet bread, sweet citrus/peach tea, sweeter than expected. The bready caramel malt is toasted and the hops mix in creating a pecan shell-like bitterness. Finishes with tea tannins. M - Medium carbonation, creamy smooth feel, fuller body for the style. Tasty brew that is on the bolder and tastier end of the style. A little sweet but has a bit of counteraction from the hops. Nice creamy body with kick of citrus. Serving type: on-tap 01-26-2013

Well, I’ll tell you one thing. I haven’t had many brown ales that had a nice hop profile in them, but this one does. Pours a nice brown color (like it should), with a nice hop and caramel aroma. A very light white, small head appeared at first pour. The hop profile would probably be citrus/floral.

flying_pig (1072) - SCOTLAND - JUL 12, 2013
355ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£2.60):
Malty & very sweet with some earthy hops and a bit of sugar. There is some butterscotch, a few dark fruits and a hint of caramel and spice.
Mahogany brown, a thumb sized, bubbly head that is a sort of yellowy cream colour. This halves in size and holds about a half centimetre tall after that.
Sweet to start with some lighter, roasted malt flavours and a earthy hop taste that matches the nose and is what you would expect. The dark fruits are more noticeable than in the nose with some plum, dates and some apples. There is also a sweet, sugary taste and some alcohol towards the end.
Very sweet with a smooth, almost boozy taste and a medium body. Carbonation in this one is quite mild and the dark fruits give it most of the sweetness.

Not a bad beer this one. This one is pretty standard fair with quite a lot of fruits and sweetness with a nice mix of malts at the start. The mouthfeel and the soft carbonation of this one made it a clean, easy one to drink, although that being this one isn’t anything special.
