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.

Wegro (332) - Fresno, California, USA - MAY 13, 2012
First impression seemed very thin, but after warming up it had some nice roasted flavors along with spice and some nuts. little bit of hops. says citra hops but i didnt detect a lot of hopping. really thin for a 6%, even looks thin and has a small wispy head and clear light brown appearance. american brown ales are kind of weird and i dont know exactly who keeps buying them since beer snobs dont care for them. this one is a good example of the style though so i’ll give it some points for that. but i dont see myself getting a 6 pack of it, well, ever

DuffMan (7501) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 10, 2012
Bottle. Dark brown with copper highlights and a rocky tan head that shows great retention. Aroma is very nice, sweet brown sugar and breadcrusts, hints of fruit. Nice malty palate, dark and sweet, with a very dry bitter finish. Certainly tasty, yet marred considerably by over carbonation and a hard mouthfeel. Some metal in the finish.

allllllllllright???? .. when i first heard of this, i really wanted to try this- but now thats its open and in front of me, not to happy .. . odd smell, like berry and old raisins .. . medium headring .. light lacing .. . hank hill is such a bitch .. . light mouth, good in that sense .. . some molasses, light berry skin, and a slight offness- not good .. . this was a huge letdown .. . i know anchor as being not spectacular at anything but always solid- this was crap .. . . I stayed up all night to see where the sun went. Then it dawned on me.

phaleslu (7208) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Sample from a bottle at Microfest 2012. Pours a somewhat hazy chestnut color with a big, frothy off-white head. Notes of hazelnut, caramel, brown sugar, citrusy hops, wet tobacco leaves, and sweet bread. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a soft, bready mouthfeel that ends with a dank leafiness. Good brown.
