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.

Bottle. One finger clear brown. Fine malty notes. Very fresh crisp with tannin -like bitterness. The mouthfell resemblance a complex gourmet sauce.

mensch (264) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - SEP 23, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2012 Beautiful reddish-brown with a rocky foam on top. Odd aroma includes some bright fruity hops which follow into the flavor, but both aroma and flavor favor the malt. Dry and toasty, some carmel and a plum kinda fruitiness. Fairly light in body. Dry finish. Very good, but maybe too dry and not malty enough for my taste.

No head whatsoever. Tastes pretty generic for a brown ale, but in a good way. I think the main flavor is molasses and nuts. Good but not great.

Fra flaske på Cafe Blaagaards Apotek: intens karamell- og bæraroma. Bjørnebær, villbringebær. Flott skum som varer. Frisk og med god munnfylde og herlig ettersmak. yes!

Plovmand (6809) - Helsinge, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2012
Bottle at home. Pours clear brown with a medium creamy beige head. The aroma is chocolate, light roasted, fruit, citrus and biscuits. The flavour is highly fruity woth notes of bubble gum, chocolate and some roast. Quite fruity brown ale.

jookos (3162) - FINLAND - SEP 17, 2012
Bottle. Brown, clear. Nose is intriguing; caramel, hazelnuts, toffee, dark sugar, molasses, some chocolate. and a mixture of earthy hops. And a bit of metallic notes, sadly. Body is fullish, more roasted than the nose, bitter, but not too much. Some oak-like flavours as well. This must be one of the best classic brown ales I’ve tasted. Really nice.

dark brown color, walnuts, frangelico, mildly sweet, malty, a touch d brown sugar. Very smooth. Nice, but a touch too sweet for me.

Tapped (@Tryk-Bar):Hazy, amber coloured, big brown fluffy head, sweet dark malt, brown bread, dried fruits and some vinous aromas in the nose, hops in the background; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied; lingering bitter-malty finish. A very convincing brew…
