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.

The aroma is moderately sweet with caramel, toasted malt and chocolate. There is also a decent amount of herbal hops. The appearance is medium brow with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall a pretty good session beer but nothing special.

A decent brown ale. Pours pretty light. Smells very fruity, like raspberries, but weirdly, does not taste like it smells. Taste is smooth, but a little boring. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

what a great brew from anchor! I’m not much of a brown ale fan but this one rocked! makes for a tasty gulping brew. I could seriously enjoy mug after mug of this beer!

KlextonGaze (60) - Franklinville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 3, 2012
1/2 650ml into pint poured fiery amber with moderate khaki head diminishing fairly quick. Toasty malt character with nutty, caramel embellishment. Bit unusual herbaceous woodiness and light cocoa emerging on taste. Bitter tinge rounding it out. Quirky, but plenty drinkable.

Pinball (10766) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2012
bottle, trade with papsoe. clear amber, large smooth creamy brown head. aroma of toffee, caramel, malts, hops, dry hoppy nutty aroma. flavor is slightly citrussy, malty, hoppy, flowery, nutty, I’m afraid this might be very slightly infected, or perhaps it’s just the nutty malts playing subtle citrussy tricks. Very bitter, malty bitter, wood, the very slightly infected like note could be the citra doing a flowery citrussy thing to the beer. the beer appears nonheavy and easy to drink, however complexity and bitterness makes it a beer for the geek nevertheless.

Bottle. Deep brown , big head that fades, smells of ood, oak and some rich malt. Not what I expected from one of my fav brewers. Easy drinking, light on the palate , some slight smokinerss at the end but not flavorful at all. Average

PapaSkeetSkeet (808) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - FEB 27, 2012
walnut with dirty seafoam head. Aroma is grassy with a bit of moldy rock and chlorinated pool. Medium, creamy body with moderate carbonation. Astringent, unpleasant bitterness, rather metallic, almost chemical. Yuck. It’s more drinkable then a beer that is going bad, but really, a good ol’ American brown? I think not. A disappointing night for beers- 0 for 3.

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Poured into a snifter. 3.0 A: Deep transluscent amber brown color. A little over one finger of frothy beige head. Retenion is perhaps a hair below average and a "barely there" ring of lacing is left. 3.0 S: Strange aroma. The dominant component is some novel mix of cocoa powder and flowers with herbal undertones. Toasted malts with anise and caramel. Light, raisiny fruitiness. 3.0 T: Cocoa powder/flowers/herbs mix that tastes just as strange as it smells. Raisin, toasted malts, faint roastiness. Doughy malts overall. 4.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation that somehow in conjunction with the body makes this feel a lot like a beer from cask. Good creaminess, very nice. 3.5 D: Strange, but tasty beer that has a damn good mouthfeel. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-31-2012 03:29:43

reebtogi (4144) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 25, 2012
355ml bottle pours dark brown in color with a finger of off-white head that leaves some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild with roasted malts and hint of citrus. Taste is malty sweet with roasted malt and citrus hop bitterness. Flavors are nicely balanced and body is medium with some light carbonation.
