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.

jmgreenuk (5712) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle at The Fiddler, Den Haag. Poured a cloudy murky brown colour with a thin off-white head. The aroma is malt yeast and fruit. The flavour is medium bitter with lots of roasted malt, liqourice, red berry fruit and alcohol on the smooth but slightly alcoholic palate. A super beer but needs more chewy malt and nuts!

Lemke10 (880) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2013
This pours a medium brown color with a slight, beige head. The aroma is very malty. The taste is very sweet from malts and burnt sugars. Also in the mix are molasses, caramel, and a slightly bitter finish. This is surprisingly very good yet a complex brown ale.

fabioanselmo (185) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - AUG 25, 2013
A escolhida de hoje é a Brekle?s Brown da Anchor Brewing Co, cervejaria californiana que já me impressionou e muito com a melhor Porter que já avaliei. Aparência: cor cobreado com uma bela formação de espumas, corpo aparentemente consistente. Aroma: forte aroma amadeirado e malte torrado, aroma de complexidade média,  com certo floral na composição. Sabor: levemente amargo , com boa percepção do malte, é aqui que percebe-se a diferença entre uma boa cerveja e uma cerveja comercial. Notas de madeira e algo de café são levemente reconhecidos. Sensação: ótima textura que deixa lágrimas no copo. A presença do álcool é imperceptível e a cerveja deixa um retrogosto agradável na boca. A espuma manteve-se no copo em todo o momento . Conjunto: definitivamente mais uma Anchor que me deixou apaixonado,  sem dúvidas entra na minha lista das favoritas.

probstblueribbon (3275) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2013
1 PT. 6 FL OZ. bottle via Bieropholie, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Deep clear mahogany with a nice orange-light mocha head. Aroma: Fairly rich brown sugar, hints of molasses, sort of a bright, herbal note, light cola and root beer notes, dark treacle, toffee, sweet-smelling, fairly good. Palate: Medium body, fairly zippy effervescence. Flav.: More stark, dry and serious than the nose, still has some nice dark malt notes, a bit of brown sugar, toffee/treacle, light molasses, there’s that same herbal brightness...maybe the Citra?, isn’t jiving for me; dry with some bitterness and a sort of cola-like herbal and brown sugar/treacle/roasted malt finish.

Not quite my cup of tea, but decent.
