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.

Beerman6686 (6244) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2013
This poured a semi murky light brown color with a beige head. Aroma was light toast, some mild sour fruit character, yeast, and light nuts. Flavor was a bit off and astringent, not true to the style, but a slight funk to it that I enjoyed. Ok.

(Bottle) Pours hazy brown with a light creamy head. Flowery malty aroma and bready, roasty malty flavours with a nice freshness from the hop. The many flavours do clash to an extend, but its still a very tasty brew

rand (1490) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle 355 ml from Bier-Bienne (CH). Dark red brown with a short beige head. Enticing nose of roasted malt, toffy-molasses, hop citrus-lemon. The mouth delights roasted malt, toffee, spices, molasses-barley sugar. The Citra signs its work, tropical, lemon and citrus. Neverless, i was still difficult to finish the bottle, warming the taste and its bitter comes to obsessive and sikkening.

lord_totenkopf (314) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 25, 2013
Dark brown body, big yellow-brownish head, mildly fizzy. Aroma of malts, some bread, roasted malt, a bit of coffee and cookies. Really complex maltyness with both roasted and fresh notes. Taste is more bitter, leaves a hoppy trace on the back of the tongue, bit alcoholic. Bitter finish. Good brew.

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2013
Well balanced nose with fruitcake sweetness from the malt (with added malt loaf) and a subtle underpinning of hop tang. Pours a deep brown with a firm faun head and an inner ruby fire. Flavour is some salted caramel malt with a rum n raisin icecream finish. Well balanced and pleasant but a touch thin and a touch bland.

Fatehunter (2205) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 19, 2013
A thin tan head on a hazy, brown colored body. The aroma is unique: roasted malt with a sharp pine injection. I like it. The taste is similar with a roasted/nutty malt background and a strong pine and lemon bitterness throughout. A crisp texture, moderate carbonation and medium body. It’s like a marriage of a brown ale and an IPA. Enjoyable.

Pershing (520) - Garland, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Excellent dark brown pour with a nice tan head and some lacing. Aroma of Cita hops and a little spice. I’ve heard of this new hop variety but have never tasted it. Medium body with a lightly roasted malt and spice taste. Clean somewhat dry finish. An excellent brown ale.

33 cl bottle, Sheffield, UK via The Dram Shop. Medium brown, lighter appearance than cola. Balanced aroma, sweet caramel with floral hops. Medium body, sharp spice then a long building sweetness on the finish. Quite nice, very American in style compared to what I’ve been drinking recently.
