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.

Botled. Dark copper color, clear. Big head is slightly tanned. Citrussy citra-hoppy nose with caramelly and toasted nutty notes. A hint of roasted barley and very dark chocolate. Starts caramelly but quickly dries into resiny bitterness and slightly sourly roasted maltiness. Lingering bitter, dry and quite heavily toasted, dark chocolatey and almost smoky finish. In the late finish some raisiny notes appear. Quite complex malty flavors through out. Medium body frothy and fresh texture. Linering bitterness.

355 ml bottle. Clear dark reddish brown colour, thin off-white head. Aroma of toasted malt and caramel, with nuts and chocolate, and a whif of citrus hoppiness. The flavour is sweetish, toasted malty, with biscuits and chocolate, notes of nuts, and a moderately bitter, aromatic hoppy finish. Tasty.

Brown body, offwhite head. Aroma has chocolate and caramel, lots of maltiness in really nice balance. Sweetness doesn’t overcome. Noticeable bitterness in flavour. Very balanced.

Ruby with bit brown, creamy, dense head is bit short but looks nice. Good, sweet aroma is pure and caramel malty, hops in back give balance. Medium body, sweet, malty, nuts, wood, good nuances in malt, soft and round palate and soft carbonation, malt nuances linger to long finish. Tasty, good!

I love beers from Anchor, this is another one that meets my expectations. I love single hops beers for the clarity of the hops aroma - in this case Citra. Aroma is malt, caramel, chocolate, earth, leather. Taste is sweet-sour with smooth bitterness. The carbonation is moderate and nicely distributes the taste among your taste buds. I like how it is built - all seems to be perfectly balanced - body, bitterness, complex aromas of malt and yeast. Anchor rocks!

Kaatuu lasiin tumman kuparinruskeana ja kirkkaana, vaahto on noin kolmen sormen paksuinen ja melko tiivis. Hajussa on paahteisen maltaan ja ruisleipäisyyden lisäksi reilusti (jenkkihumalien tuomaa?) trooppista hedelmäisyyttä ja sitrusta. Hiven jonkinlaista suklaisuuttakin on joukossa. Maussa on niin ikään paahdetta, leipäisyyttä ruisleivän ja limpun muodossa, trooppista hedelmää, sitrusta ja kevyttä suklaisuuttakin. Suutuntuma on keskitäyteläinen miinus, jopa yllättävänkin kevyt. Humalointia on hieman, muttei tuntuvasti. Kevyehkö brown ale, jossa yllättävän paljon humalan tuomia hedelmäisiä aromeja ilman mainittavaa katkeroa. Miellyttävä, mutta suutuntumaltaa liian mieto olut.

Bottiglia 355ml, comprata da spirito di vino e bevuta a casa. Marrone con copiosa schiuma persistente. Molto maltata, caramello, dolciastra, finale un pò più amaro.

12oz bottle. Pours dark copper with a small head. Great hop aromas. Nice malt complexity with the biscuit and caramel flavors. Great citrus tangerine hop flavor to finish off with. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
