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.

SkillsFactory (174) - ITALY - APR 12, 2015
Color marrone chiaro, mediamente carbonata, schiuma color nocciola abbastanza fine con una persistenza medio-bassa. Al naso caramello, uva passa e note citriche. In bocca inizialmente prevale il dolce del malto, successivamente la bevuta è equilibrata dall'amaro dei malti tostati (cacao) e dalle note citriche date dai luppoli. Corpo medio che lascia un retrogusto dolce estremamente gradevole.

beeebon (303) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2015
Bottle. Pours a brown mahogany clear colour with large foamy tan head which soon goes down leaving a lingering top. Aroma is rich malt, molasses and slight citrus notes. Taste is sweet and bitter, nicely balnces providing complexity. Substantial mouth feel, quite slick and nice. Overall this is a fine beer, what I have come to expect from this brewery.

Bottle. Pours a clear brown producing a medium-sized, tan and lightly fluffy head. Lightly roasted and fairly sweet aromas. Hints of grass, heather-honey. Taste is lightly sweet with a lasting sweetness that’s barely rounded off into the aftertaste. Semi-dry and medium to light bodied. Just below avg co2 levels.

Zlotta (308) - Bonn, GERMANY - MAR 11, 2015
0,355 l bottle from EDEKA Mohr, best before 11/2015. Clear, dark brownish red with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Intense aroma of molasses, toffee, dried plums and candy sugar. Very sweet taste of dried plums, molasses, blackcurrant, candy sugar and hints of coffee and chocolate. Short, slightly bitter finish which serves as a sufficient counterpart to the sweetness. Full bodied, oily and chewy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Much on the sweet side but I like it. Huge aroma, tasty and a satisfying mouthfeel. Good!
