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.

Dark brown with a smallish head. Aroma is sweet malts, syrupy, spicyness, hint of alcohol. Taste is malt all over, a hint of hops somewhere. Mouthfeel a bit light. Finishes with a light bitterness. Rather okay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Honey. Bread. Alcohol sweetness with a sting. Malt bomb leaving little room for the citra hops. However a better specimen of the horrid brown ale style.

SperkeleForce (791) - FINLAND - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle 35,5 cl. Darker copper in color with brownish medium lacing head. Notes of chocolate, roasted, toasty, nuts, syrup, caramel, earthy, spices. Pretty heavy malted, could use more hops. The balance of hops and malts seem wrong. Bit harsh.

HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - DEC 11, 2013
355ml bottle. Dark brown pour with lots of red in it. Moderate head. Aroma is west coast hops and dark malt. Taste is more like one of those aggressively hopped reds. Wife said it tasted sour, but I think that was just the grapefruit note in the hop mixed with the darker malt sweetness. Whatever it is, I enjoyed it even if she didn’t. More flavour than usual for a brown.

Roasty malt aroma ruins any chance of appreciating citra. Seems pointless. Bit of smoke, not entirely bad, but not going to finish.

bursprak (2104) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2013
355 ml bottle @ home. Color is brown with almost no head. Aroma is malts, raisins and floral. Taste is sweet and a bit hoppy with malts and raisins.

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Bottled 2YX (Whatev that means) Pours a nice cinnamon brown with some etched surface foam that is oat colored. Smells of toasted oats, some malt syrup, smacks cereal, and bit of cardboard. Smells sweet. Flavor is toasted and sweet oats, some cola, some bakin soda flavors. The body on this is surprisingly empty with carb and an off dry finish. I’m not impressed ewith this beer.

A very nice brown ale. Aromas of sweet dark fruit and woodiness. Flavors are toasted malts and wood with a touch of sweetness. Very interesting and good

The beer is sweet and the alcohol shows itself even being low. I tasted caramel and a little bit bread. Sweet aroma.
