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.

Tap at The Earl of Essex. Pours a dark reddy brown with a thin off white head. Aroma is toffee, candy a bit if root beer. Medium body, toasty, burnt toffee, cherry. It's OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (3323) - 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.

Torrefacto (954) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 9, 2013
Color caramelo oscuro, espuma beige. Aromas intensos de caramelo, azúcar moreno y ligero lupulo. En boca tiene un inicio dulce ligero al que acompañan sabores tostados y caramelo, que terminan en un final lupulado ligeramente cítrico.

bottle, thanks to my beer buddy cheap. Pours dark brown with thick, tan head. Aromas of toffee, floral hops, toffee, and bready malts. Complexity of citrus, toffee, bread, malts and hints of nutty flavors. Excellent brown ale. I have not had a bad brew from this brewery. Worth the try!! Thanks Cheap!!

Rica cerveza de color ámbar y espuma bien marcada, quizás le falte cuerpo y un poco de definición del sabor, dejando un ligero retrogusto cítrico (acido?). En cualquier caso, es una buena cerveza de la gente de Anchor Brewery.

Koelschtrinker (12954) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 6, 2013
Herber, eher wässrig malziger Antrunk. Nussig schokoladig, weich, es kommen unerwartet sogar Hopfenaromen hervor. Harmonisch aber nicht vollmundig, die Malzigkeit wird intensiver. Zum Ende wässrig. 11/9/8/9/9/9

This brown ale looks deep, dark brown in color, almost garnet at times, and isn’t completely opaque. It’s transparent enough to see through, but its darkness hinders your attempts. Its head is light brown and short-lived, and no head retention happens here... no carbonation, no lively appearance. It’s simply an ale with what appears to be roasted malts, some heavily caramelized, maybe even burnt caramel flavors, and, knowing the brewer, the beer is likely to showcase some hop character through all of this. This is all just my guess, pre-taste, pre-aroma, of course. And guess what - it smells and tastes just like it looks. Highly caramelized malts, slightly burnt, dominate the nose, with a touch of earthy, spicy hops. It could be mistaken for a burnt amber/red ale just from the aroma. Even though a touch of roasted/chocolate malts come through in the aroma, they mostly show up in the flavor. The palate is clean, soft, and mellow, with a somewhat sweet overall flavor, nicely-balanced with heavily caramelized malts, light chocolate, and a echo of roasted malts. Hops really seem to play an interesting part in the beer’s flavor as well, offering an acidic, sweet character that really cuts through the (thin) maltiness very well. It finishes clean, with a touch of bitterness and an almost traditional brown ale-style maltiness. There’s something fruity about this, though, reminiscent of pit fruits and beet juice. Huh.
