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.

SlovakSniper (3698) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2012
Une bouteille fraîche de mon ami Steve. Meilleure avant mars 2014. Une robe magnifique avec ses reflets bruns et rouges. Une tête crémeuse qui n’exagère jamais. Un nez de caramel et de notes grillées avec des touches de noix et des pointes fruitées. Dans la première moitié de la dégustation, une présence de fruits rouges. Dans la deuxième moitié, des notes d’agrumes. Au goût, des saveurs bien plaisantes de caramel et de noix rôties. Une présence houblonnée bien fruitée. Toujours cette présence de petites baies à travers ces belles pointes citriques. Une bouche de moyenne densité avec un apport normal des bulles et une texture huileuse. Une finale qui permet l’étendue d’une fine amertume de houblons à travers quelques notes rôties. Une bière facile à boire et grandement cohésive. J’adore cette maison.

benpickens (425) - Camarillo, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Muddy brown with medium head that builds with little agitation and leaves ample lacing; brown sugar and molasses with citrus aroma; hops upfront... Not a mild brown but a hop forward one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

teorn88 (3555) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours a clear and very dark brown with a loose tan head and light stringy lace. Nice rich brown bread and molasses nose, showing just a tiny twang of aluminum. Creamy medium body with light but pleasant carb. Rich toasty bready mid palate with some very light molasses notes, but overall very clean and thoroughly attenuated. Light brown bread finish.

Bottle from Yamaichi. Nose of brown sugar, caramel, chocolate, light spice. Deep brown witha tall, fine head. Sweet, malty, thick.  Fruity, like raisins or grapes. Yeast character is a bit strange. A bit thin. Ok, not so special though.
