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.

brewtalita (183) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 7, 2015
Brown color, slightly hazy appearance. Thick and stable beige head. Beer was bit on the warmer side to let the aroma stand out. Wonderful aroma of burnt caramel, toffee, dried prunes and appricots. Palate is normal given its ABV. Hops contribute to complexity with aroma and taste. Very mild bitterness ending. Full complexity with low alcohol and plateau. Original and enjoyed.

sound67 (600) - Offenbach, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2015
Maker: Anchor Brewing Company, San Francisco, USA *** Beer: Anchor Brekle’s Brown (bottled, unfiltered, 355ml) *** Style: Brown Ale *** ALC.VOL.: 6.0% *** "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." [brewery note] *** Colour: Deep mahogany, slightly hazy, with a medium light beige head. *** Nose: Burnt caramel, hazelnuts, light citrusy/estery note. *** Texture: Medium body, hardly watery. Modest carbonation. *** Taste: Dominant burnt caramel and licorice at first, with a balancing light citrus note. Cane sugar. Middle retains the burnt caramel, but drier than before. Citrus. Finish returns to cane sugar and licorice, now sweetish. After taste again is burnt caramel, molasses. *** Impressions: Another great beer from the seemingly infallible Anchor Brewing Company. Great depth and balance, characterful brown ale (much more so than most English samples). Why can’t all beers be this good?!

Erzengel (7296) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2015
The beer starts smooth malty. Nice brown aroma with a not too sugary sweetish brown body. Fresh but not too seep. Easy to drink, fresh, smooth. Sugary but quite dry aftertaste, not too much bitterness, caramel, hints of floral hops, nice.

suurjuust (2661) - ESTONIA - AUG 19, 2015
Dark brown beer, creamy beige head. Nose is brown sugar, dried fruit, slightly toasty malt, caramel sweetness, citrus. Flavor is citric, nutty dryness, mild roast and malt, caramel. Hoppy, earthy, dry and citric finish with toasty caramel. Lingering hoppy bitterness that borders on resiny. A clean and mild brown ale with a healthy helping of Citra sounds strange, but I like this one.

Lilja (2539) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2015
Flaska från Saveur Bieré. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, rörsocker, torkad frukt med toner av choklad och honung. Fin maltsötma, rund och len, torr, lättkropp men inte blaskig, fina smaker som smyger sig fram i gommen. Mycket gott!

Spab (3182) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2015
12 oz bottle from Rockhead. Pours a murky orangey brown colour with decent eggshell-coloured head. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, nuts and light citric hops. Flavour has a more assertive citric hoppiness with still lots of maltiness - notes of toffee, chocolate, nuts and a light earthiness. Slick mouthfeel. Good one.
