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.

Appearance - Deep red, creamy lacing
Aroma - Grassy, hops toffee, bread
Taste - Grain, raisins, butterscotch, light hops

This beer was pretty malty and only a tad bitter at first. While it warms up the hops give a tart flavor - as if you’re eating a raisin granola bar that smells like butterscotch. I like this take on the style.

Hermod (4361) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2012
355ml bottle from Bierzwerg. Poured mahogany color with a white, lasting head. Heavy malty aroma, fruity hops in the background, nutty, roasty on the nose. Flavor has toasted malt, caramel, hops and a very dry malty and spicy finish. Medium bodied, smooth, oily. Excellent brown ale! Not really a fan of brown ales but this just works.

OmegaX (1345) - Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2012
This was an interesting brew for sure. Thanks again, Chipalsa for hooking this one up. I got plenty of caramel and nuttiness with some exotic fruit tones in the aroma. Taste mimicked the aroma perfectly, with caramel, some light chocolate, butterscotch aftertastes, and hints of passionfruit and guanabana. Such a refreshingly different brown ale.

pours a dark, clear, caramel colored brown with small, diminishing grey head. Aroma of caramel, soft molasses, brown sugar, roasted hazelnut. Medium bodied, smooth, with a nutty finish. Flavor of caramel with a soft, spicy hop presence, some nuts, ever so lightly bittered. Great session brown.

deyholla (8124) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2012
On tap at Big Star. Pours a clear deep caramel brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges quickly. Aroma has a good amount of deep grains with a bit of light caramel and chocolate. Flavor is sweet with chocolate and dark grains with a hint of backing caramel.

Yorker (1598) - Herning, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2012

MoritzF (8726) - GERMANY - MAY 31, 2012
(bottle, 35.5cl) Hazy, copper colour with a beige-coloured firm medium-sized foamy head. Sweet toast-malty aroma with notes of caramel/toffee, chocolate and a subtle fruity and nutty touch, accompanied by spicy hops. Moderately sweet flavour, medium to light bodied with a soft carbonation. Toasty malt-character with caramel, chocolate and subtle citrus-fruity hoppy notes; moderately toasty and sweet malty finish with chocolate, toffee, rounded off by slightly citric hops. Very nice. 15.V.12
