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.

RedSox2004 (1214) - 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 (7112) - 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!

Wegro (331) - Fresno, California, USA - MAY 13, 2012
First impression seemed very thin, but after warming up it had some nice roasted flavors along with spice and some nuts. little bit of hops. says citra hops but i didnt detect a lot of hopping. really thin for a 6%, even looks thin and has a small wispy head and clear light brown appearance. american brown ales are kind of weird and i dont know exactly who keeps buying them since beer snobs dont care for them. this one is a good example of the style though so i’ll give it some points for that. but i dont see myself getting a 6 pack of it, well, ever
