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.

Bottle to pint glass. Pours a coppery clear body with a thin white head. Aroma is that of nuts. The taste has a bit of toffee and maybe a tough of almond. Not one of my favorite styles but it was a nice suprise.

Brown pour, off white head. Nutty, malty and some sweetness. It is tasty, but nothing special.

Bottle. Clear mahogany color with a nice light tan top. Taste of spruce, floral, citrus, herbs, brown sugar. Medium carbonation. Too hoppy for this style IMO

knewell (73) - Alabama, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Pours a copper brown color with a tan head. Has a taste of caramel and nuts that leaves a mild bitter hoppiness. Overall, a clean refreshing beer. Great if you want a brown ale with a little kick.

This is the first beer that I can actually taste the carmel hint that unfortunately doesn't help the overall flavor of this brew. Serving it in a chilled glass does more harm than good for this brown ale that makes a rich fluffy head that invokes a smile to any beer drinkers face. That smile diminishes just a bit upon the first taste but thankfully doesn't turn into a frown. Anchor Steam has an above average beer with Brekle's but I've had much better malts elsewhere. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
