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.

Bottled December 8, 2011.
Appearance: The body is a dark chestnut that’s opaque through the center, the tan head is tall and dense with great retention that leaves a huge mess on the glass as it dissipates.
Aroma: The aroma is malty with toffee, caramel, and some cocoa, perhaps some brown sugar, with a hint of tropical flavors and hints of oxidation..
Taste: The body is malty with toffee, brown sugar and dark fruits on the finish. It could be oxidation to some degree, it’s a bit grapey on the finish. It’s still good though.
Palate: Light to medium bodied with light carbonation.
Overall: I thought this was a bit fresher, I guess that may be throwing a lot of it off. It’s decent and I’ll try it again but there are some notes of oxidation that I’m not sure are intentional.

Pretty aromatic when I popped the cap. Bit of frothy line tan head. Glass is coated with lots of bubbles on the side. Slightly toasted grain aroma, chased by hops. Beautiful clear red color when held to a light bulb. Flavor of fresh oranges and mango. Perhaps even a bit of cherry. Bitterness comes out in the aftertaste. Have seen this for sale for a long time. It’s a shame it took me this long to try it!!

Clear red - amber beer, Good pale tan head. Light palate, frothy and a little dry. Dry even malt with a trace of toffee. A little aniseed. Some hop in there somewhere. Very dry finish. Clunky!

Doesn't really have the nutty character I've come to expect from my favorite browns, but this malty gem is wonderful and clean on the palette ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerman6686 (4302) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2013
This poured a semi murky light brown color with a beige head. Aroma was light toast, some mild sour fruit character, yeast, and light nuts. Flavor was a bit off and astringent, not true to the style, but a slight funk to it that I enjoyed. Ok.

kragelund (107) - , DENMARK - JAN 27, 2013
(Bottle) Pours hazy brown with a light creamy head. Flowery malty aroma and bready, roasty malty flavours with a nice freshness from the hop. The many flavours do clash to an extend, but its still a very tasty brew
