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.

another entry from Anchor that leaves a bit to be desired. a decent brown, but for the money, there is better out there. flavor had a sort of skunky, dusty flavor in the front, like old dried out hops. not very pleasing. ill pass on this one next time.

RickTStiles (757) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 18, 2012
pours clear brown with a lasting beige head and some sticky lacing. light aroma with sweet, malty notes with some nuttiness and maple. taste is hoppy for a brown ale with notes of dark, slightly roasty malt and some spices. finish is sweet with spice notes. a very subtle but enjoyable beer .

superspak (2602) - Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2012
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled 11/9/2011. Pours slightly hazy reddish brown color with a nice 1-2 finger dense khaki head with great retention that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Some slight spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas of caramel, biscuit, molasses, toasted malt, herbal hop, pine, and light citrus. Some ok aromas, but there is some chemical-like off flavor noticeable. Taste of big caramel, biscuit, roasted nut, toasted malt, molasses, herbal hop, pine, and light citrus. Light bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, roasted nut, biscuit, citrus, and herbal on the finish for a short bit. Nice flavor balance with a good malt backbone. Medium carbonation and body; with a nice and fairly creamy mouthfeel. No alcohol warming noticed at all; very smooth to drink. Overall this is a fairly nice and enjoyable brown ale. Nice malt backbone as I like in brown ales; and very smooth to drink.

Bottle: Pours a brownish copper with ruby tones and a medium off-white head that is mostly lasting. Malty roasted aroma is flowery with hints of citrus. Malty flavor is rich with hints of brown sugar and orange peel. Very well balanced and a delicious brown ale.

milewide (1511) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2012
One of the best browns that I have tried! Clear dark brown with average head and body. Aroma and taste were roast and malty---with outstanding Citra hops for balance.

dresden (845) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 9, 2012
Brown with foamy tan head. Lots of roasted malt in aroma, some nuttiness, cocoa and chocolate. Tastes quite sweet, molasses, brown sugar and syrup. Decent brown ale, but I’m starting to get a bit tired of the style.
