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.

Deep ice-tea colored body with a small tan head. Aroma of malt, alcohol, earth, caramel, pit fruits and nuts. Medium-bodied with a creamy finish. Pungent nutty flavors with caramel, a touch of dryness and some light hop finish. Aftertaste is mostly about the malt and nuts here with some very mild earth and dryness throughout. Overall, a nice brown, but a little boozy when warmer.

guzzler67 (1512) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Brownish orange appearance with a large tan head and good lacing. Aroma is roasted malt with hints of dark fruit and caramel. Soft, sweet flavors of molassas, brown sugar and ripe fruit. Alcohol is a bit more pronounced in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, subtly carbonated mouthfeel with a lingering finish.

mmmbeer (1250) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 14, 2012
12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured a transparent brown with plenty of ruby highlights when held to a light source, very lively medium carbonation. 2mm overly bubblyhead quickly disappeared, aroma of caramel, with a small amount of hops and pumpernickel bread in the background. Hits the mouth with a firm medium body, malt has some dulled sweetness to it but it works in this case, middle is overcome with some more sweetness, finish has an acidic overtone from the hops. Interesting brownie.

Definitely has a beginning, a middle, and an end. Find the finish to be a bit tart and unpleasant. But sitting on the porch an a warm, evening in NC, hard to be too hard on it. Depth of flavor as mentioned in its description is definitely the case.

jhamp9 (1086) - Corinth, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Pours a dark reddish brown with a thick tan head that dissipates to a ring. Aroma is caramel, nuts, and a hint of citrus. Taste is nutty with caramel, bread, and some butter. Really silky on the palate and not heavy at all. Really good.

Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Draft. Crystal clear brown appearance with a light tan minimal head. Appears to have ok lacing. Not a bad entry in the brown ale. Better than bad penny bad that’s not saying much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RichardW (1529) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2012
bottle, Coppers, Ncl. Beautiful foaming reddy brown pour, with a lovely thick head. Huge sweet malt aromas, brown sugar and bread looms large, plenty of fizz on the tongue and a sweet strawberry swallow. Some bitterness in the finish and aftertaste that is slightly tart and brings in orange citrus. Very English style full bodied brown ale
