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.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, hops.

BlackHaddock (6100) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2016
1st Feb 2016: 355ml bottle into a Chimay badged chalice at home. Lovely red hue to the clear body, on top a lightly tanned blanket of foam. Malty molasses rule the nose, their sweetness controlling the flavouring too, mild bitter aftertaste from the citra hops they used (no citrus fruit notes though), but the malts fill the mouth and your senses really and the aforementioned bitterness is also due to the roasted malts in the brew also.

BrewGoblin (632) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JAN 23, 2016
Beautifully reddish-brown, Brekle’s tastes more like a non-spiced Belgian Dubbel than the American Brown I was hoping for. Instead of bready, biscuity snap, I am treated to a flavour and aroma of raisins and prunes, toffee and white toast. A nice creamy mouthfeel makes up for my pseudo-disappointment.

jamestulloch (3296) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 11, 2015
Bottle. Deep brown body with a thick beige head. Good lacing. Aroma of chocolate, flower petals and carrot cake. Flavour of toffee, brown sugar, fig and a light, floral hop finish. Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Rich flavour balanced by an intriguing hop choice.

Butelka 0,355l Kolor ciemnobrązowy, piana nikła. Aromat owocowy, karmel w tle, lekka kwaskowatość piwo dobrze ułożone, delikatne, mocno palone słody, dobre piwo ale brown to nie moja bajka.
