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.

Reddish brown with tan foamy head. Malty, granola, dried fruit and light caramel aromas. It is quite sweet, but finishes with a light bitter/sour fruit flavor. Medium body. I was hopinhg for better, only mediocre.

On tap at Zlej Festival. Aroma is quite complex combination of fruits, nuts, earthy, yeast. Taste is similar, with added scotch perhaps.

Pours a translucent, reddish copper with a thin, tab head that fades. Moderate lacing. Sweet, slightly fruity aroma. Light, effervescent mouthfeel - a little thin. Light, slightly odd flavor. Raisin? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Very dark brown with red tints and a firm beige foam. Aromas are weetabix and chocolate with lemon and wheat. Lightly smoky with cola and lime. Flavours are sweet malts with chocolate and cloying molasses. Fruity and malty in the finish. A bit sickly and thin. Average.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2012
Dep brown pour with a thick, pillowy off-white head. The nose is fairly toasty with notes of spice, cocoa and a little bit of roast. Sweet malt and a little bit of earthy hoppiness add a soft fruity note on the back. Simple sort of brew, but a decent one. Medium bodied and slightly earthy. There is an almost minty character on the back. Okay.

Ernest (6723) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is medium brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain/bread), lightly malty (apricot), with notes of souring fruit and bile. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Surprisingly sour and dirty, and it has an unpleasant reflux-and-rotten-fruit odor. Embarrassing.
