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.

Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Finishes bitter with citrus hops, nuts and toasted bread. A typical example of Anchor´s beers: Not extreme, just balanced and well made.

MrBunn (2438) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle. I got this a while back and it has been sitting in the fridge waiting its time in line. Pours a lovely medium brown with reddish highlights and a nice fizzy tan head. Aromas are earthy, roasty, leafy, and toffee-like. Flavor is a bit thin, but a nice mix of dark caramel, earthy roasted malts and a slightly leafy bitterness. Very solid for a nice brown.
