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.

Moravius (695) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2014
Flasche (355 ml) von Bierzwerg.de. - Tiefes Kupferrot, klar, kurzlebiger Schaum. - In der Nase herb-fruchtiger Citra-Hopfen: Pampelmuse, Tabak, etwas Holz. - Antrunk schlank aber vollaromatisch mit zitrusfruchtigem Hopfen. Kräftiges dunkles, mild geröstetes Malz, abgerundet mit leichter pikanter Säure. Mild rezent, schlank, weich im Mund. Kräftig fruchtig-hopfenherber und malzbitterer Abgang; gut bitterer Nachtrunk. - Sehr leckeres Bier, knackig gehopft und schön dunkelmalzig, voll im Geschmack aber nicht schwer. Bloß etwas schroff im Abgang.

Initially I thought it tasted like a barely wine. Took a while to settle into the brown. Good for a try.

rikstar (1069) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2014
0,355l fles bij speciaalbierpakket vandaan. Donker koperbruin met een cremeschuimkrag. Wat een heerlijk aroma! Complex met hop en mouttonen, bastognekoeken met ook roggebrood en de frisheid van de citra met ook wat donkere bessen, geuren passen verrassend goed bij elkaar. Ben benieuwd naar de smaak begint wat waterig, met een beetje bosbessenthee afdronk is fruitig en lichtbitter. Komt na zo’n geur explosie wat tekort op de body, dat is jammer, erg jammer.

mmahut (1265) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours in dark ruby body with medium tan head. Aroma has nutty, caramel, brown sugar, pretty strong. Taste has high caramel sweetness followed with high earthy bitterness, pretty floral in the after taste with long bitterness finish. Light fruity with really toffee character. Body is medium, high carbonation.

PawelD (273) - Gdańsk, POLAND - NOV 25, 2014
Butelka. Aromat żywiczny, lekko cytrusowy, karmel. Kolor ciemny bursztyn lekko mętny, piana tworzy niski kożuch na powierzchni piwa. Wysycenie średnie skłaniające się do wysokiego. W smaku bardzo wyraziste, karmel, skórka od chleba, kawa zbożowa, nie jest wodniste a zarazem nie jest też gęste, perfekcyjny balans, bardzo aksamitna faktura piwa. Na finiszu subtelna lecz obecna chmielowa goryczka citry i ponownie karmel. Wzorowe Browl Ale.

loubar (123) - Los Gatos, California, USA - NOV 22, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2015 12 oz. bottle from BevMo. The nose reveals a bit of toasty caramel and citrus. The bready and nutty maltiness jumps out with subtle floral and fruity hoppiness taste in the background. The opposite of so many of today’s hopped up brews. The creamy light roasted malt and the citrus hops marry perfectly. Slight bitterness in the finish. Unique and tasty!
