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.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a brown/copper color with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The brew smells like caramel malt, nuts, apples and dark fruit. It tastes like caramel malt, nuts, citrusy hops (grapefruit), apples, dark fruit, and some molasses. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s creamy with moderate carbonation. I think this is a good brown ale, it’s certainly worth a try and I know I’d buy this again.

# 3315 ersma: kräftige, dunkle malze plus prägnanter hopfen (hier citra). eine mischung, der wir zukünftig häufiger begegnen werden. bräunlich-rubinfarben mit mittlerer verschäumung. der geruch ist röstmalzig mit aromen von karamell. aber auch herbe kräuter und zitrus. der antrunk hat erst kurz aromen von zitrus und grapefruit, sekunden später kommen malzige karamellnoten hinzu. die mitte ist bitter-fruchtig mit grapefruit und zitrus, hat aber auch karamell-aromen und süße. der abgang gibt sich abnehmend bitter, mit etwas zitrus und leichter malzigkeit. karamell. die flasche ist ansehnlich und erzählt in fuzzelkleiner schrift auf dem halsetikett die geschichte dieses bieres. fazit: ist das de zukunft? ich denke schon. zumindest ein teil davon. crossover, neuinterpretation - wie auch immer man das nennt, auf jeden fall ist es spannend. probierenswert. 11,11,12,11,11,11 - 11,15 - 16/5/13

Grzesiek79 (3305) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 15, 2013
Dobre, ale z poczatku degustacji tzn po pierwszym lyku takie jakby zwykly ciemny lager, ale pozniej po przelknieciu rozwija sie paleta tego brazowego ale. Finisz wytrawny. smak rodzynkowo karmelowy z lekkim chmielem. Aromat moze niezbyt intensywny ale co nieco wyczuwa sie chmiel amerykanski. Piana na srednim poziomie. Barwa piwa w odcieniach brazu i czerwieni

sic1314 (3812) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2013
Poured a dark reddish amber with a frothy tan head. Aroma of alcohol soaked berry fruit. Medium creamy body, flavour of sweet caramel malt and sweet bourbon with a bitter sweet end. Disappointing.

Emeister84 (1129) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Aromas are nutty, earthy, piney, and somewhat grapey, similar to a mild English barleywine. Clear amber-brown with a lasting, khaki head. Dry, earthy, with some caramel, nuts, purple grape, and piney hop flavors. Light-medium bodied, refreshing carbonation, and finishes with sticky, dry, earthy hops on the palate.

Dank (7) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 11, 2013 does not count
Poured dark brown. High hopes based on pedigree. Nose of over ripe fruit that carried through to flavor. Malt flavor was impaired by sour notes. Hop was apropriate for style. Tasted among six other brown ales and this rates the worst.

Scopey (7444) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2013
Keg at The Duchess of Cambridge, London. It pours deep brown with a small yellow-white head. The nose is earth, toast, brown bread and brown sugar. The taste is bitter-sweet, tangy dark fruit, berry, light tartness, raisin, brown sugar and caramel. Medium body and fine carbonation. Well hidden-alcohol. Note sure if that light tang is meant to be there.... Still a pretty quaffable brew,
