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.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, hops.

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.

Malty_MacHops (640) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Not bad. A lot of carmel and brown sugar in the nose with strong notes of floral hops. The beer is deep brown with a syrupy tan head. A balance of sweet caramel with bitter floral hops. Chewy with a balanced impression.

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
