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.

Bottle. Clear, reddish-brown pour with a beige head. Aromas of liquorice, caramel and anise. Liquorice and caramel in the flavour, roasty malts with a nicely balanced bitter edge and a touch of smoke at the end. A little thin on the palate, but unique and tasty. A very nice brown ale.

No surprise, Anchor nails this Brown Ale, created in honor of their original brew master from the 19th a Century.

Very well balanced for my taste. Nice roastiness on a good mouth feel and the rich aromatic hop variety makes this one a delight.

The smell is very sweet of toffee, nuts and milk chocolate. The color is hazy brown with a beige head. Tastes like roasted malts, nuts, cocoa and burnt sugar.

On tap at Avenue Pub. Pours a dark brown with medium creamy beige head that lasts. The aroma is strong roast, dark chocolate,cocoa. Medium mouthfeel with nice roasted malts and chocolate with nice lingering sweet finish. Enjoyed this one.

Shot (116) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAY 17, 2014
From a bottle. Pours reddish brown with a huge beige head. Aromas are sweet malt, grassy notes, biscuit and plum. Flavors are malty sweet chocolate and stone fruits with bready tones. Dried fruit and malt in the finish. Interest balance between fruity notes and the more traditional maltiness of typical brown ales. Light mouthfeel. Anchor Brewing rarely lets me down. They’ve made another very enjoyable beer. This one is really tasty.

Dark brown beer with a beige head. Syrup, raisins, sherry on the nose. Watery body. Crispy mouth feel. Caramel and bread flavors. Some fruity roasted coffee. Tasty yet watery. Smells good but the taste doesn’t quite match the smell.

Garrold (1149) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Hydes. Clear, dark, reddy brown. Thin, sticky, lasting, clotted cream coloured head. Fusty banana. Toffee apple. Brown sugar. Taste is initially sweet. Then mostly dry spiciness. Chew on the palate. Finish is banana Toffo sweet. Never had this before. Is it supposed to taste like a Doppelbock? Anyway, it does.
