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.

Plovmand (6983) - 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 (3494) - 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.

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…

portableparty (2056) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Pours dark brown copper color with a foamy khaki head. Aroma is metallic roasted malt. Taste is bitter roasted malt with a hop presence and some metallic spice in the finish and some dark pitted fruit too. Palate is thin to medium and finishes dry. Decent beer that has a good roasty malt presence.

Indra (2707) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - SEP 12, 2012
12oz. bottle. Aroma is roasty, malty, nutty and lightly fruity, with suggestions of dark bread, brown sugar, earthiness, faint citrus, very light cocoa and a nice leafy hop character in the background. Clear medium auburn in color, with a lasting, fine, ivory head. Flavor profile is similarly roasty and fruity, interesting balance there, with very lightly sweet, dark, bready malt, hazelnut, and a fruity, herbal hop presence throughout, finishing with a light-moderate dosage of bitterness and drying out a bit somewhere along the way. Active and light on the palate, but with a familiar coating feel seen in other offerings by this brewer, and medium body. Delicious and intriguing, certainly one of the best Browns I have ever had. I love that Anchor house character, I really do.

notalush (5351) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Dark ruby - thick head with decent retention - the citra hops dominate the nose, but the roasted malt surprisingly compliments it quite well - sadly, the same cannot be said of the flavor - the beer is quite dry and roasty and the bright citrus notes of the hops simply do not work with or compliment this character - tangy, dry, citric finish - the body is creamy , the malt base is firm and the beer is well-attenuated, but it just doesn’t come together for me.

Little head, brown. nice chockolate and light licorice nose medium body and length. Some dryish exit with soft chockolate
