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.

Brown pour. Interesting brew in smell and taste. Lots of yeast notes, dark fruits, caramel. Thinner. Not a huge fan.

I can’t believe how low this is rated here. One of the deepest browns I have ever tasted. Sweet molasses on the nose with some caramel. Complex taste of sweet caramel and slight hops. About as far as you can push a brown flavor wise.

beelsebob (35) - Cupertino, California, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Rich aroma of burned toast and caramel, Dark red/brown in colour, nice thick beige head. Not overly bitter to taste, slightly salty sweetness. Light and creamy, with a lively carbonation. It’s like drinking salted caramel.

Temptation (237) - - MAY 23, 2013
Reddish brown color, medium toasted head. Nuts, caramel and some hops in the aroma. Tastes to caramel, brown sugar, some traces of dried coffee and hops. Fine, but the watery texture lessens the potential of this beer. Good session beer, and that’s all.

Quite good too. There is a very special dark colour and nice taste and aroma too, like nut.

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.

jeverszeuge (625) - GERMANY - MAY 16, 2013
# 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
