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.

rdixon77 (602) - Georgia, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Dark brown pour with a nice creamy lacing. Nice sweet and bready malt aroma. Maybe some chocolate or toffee in there as well. Sweet and nutty taste with a bitter finish. Crisp and smooth feel. Pretty nice light brown ale.

Hazy brown color with some head. Aromas of caramel and sweet fruits. Taste almost the same, but with a hoppy aftertaste. Very balanced body. Nice beer

jbruner (2135) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Pours a nice copper brown from the bottle with a thick tan head and good lacing. Aroma is sweet and roasted malts, with a bit of alcohol. Taste is the sweet caramel and nut malts with a slightly hoppy finish. Well balanced and clean; nice american brown ale, similar to a dutch.

Palme (3163) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2012
From 0.355l bottle @ Ølfestival København 2012 . Pours a light cloudy nutty-brown body with a small sidesticking beige head that’s quickly fading. The aroma has some butterscotch and sweetness from malts with a hint of both dark fruits and chocolate paper. It’s average carbonated and it has a oily to sticky sticky texture in the mouth. The flavor has lots of caramel - almost burned caramel actually - with nuts and some branches. There is also a light mild metallic tone in the background that’s a bit confusing for the old buds. Still, II fond this to be a tasty brown ale. 10.05.2012

RedSox2004 (1200) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Hazy redish amber brown with a nice beige head and sticky lace. Strong caramel malt aroma with hints of figs, raisins and nuts. Malt sweetness up front, with chocolate and ripe fruit in the middle, and a slight hops kick in the back. Medium body, minimal carbonation, slightly sticky on the palate, and a pleasant finish that features the caramel malt sweetness.

DruncanVeasey (7098) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2012
Bottle from Alexander Wines, Coventry. Dark ruby pour with a tidy yellow-beige head. Enticing, sweet, milk chocolate coated vanilla and fig aroma identical to that untraceable sake I’ve got in the fridge. Slick and malty with a satisfying, layered sweetness hinting at Allsorts, muscovado, black cherry and fig. Maybe a trace of floral hop- after you’ve been on the extreme chilli houmous, at least. Proper brown ale, no doubt.

HardingG (76) - Butler, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2012 I enjoyed this. The pour was a nice dark mahogany color that foamed nicely, yet thinly laced. A sweet oak and hint of molasses aroma. Great bold taste, similar to Brooklyn but a little too thin on the palate. Overall it is one I will drink many more times. Better than Bells!
