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.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, hops.

Nice thick and creamy brown ale, lots of sweet and cinnamon elements. Easy going and nice citrus

Pours a slightly hazy deep reddish brown. Aroma is rich syrupy malt with a distinct earthy hop flavor. The taste starts out malty then changes to slightly sour. The finish is nicely crisp and dry.

Somewhat odd brown ale, mainly because of the Citra hops, but it’s still kind of interesting. Pleasant amount of roast and toast, along with a slight nuttiness. Loads of citrus, mostly orange, plus a lemon meringue note. Mildish yet balancing bitterness. Pinch of lactic-like sourness. I love Citra hops, but I don’t think they work so well with this beer’s malt bill.

Ugh...a barely drinkable brown ale. Aroma was OK but a little nasty. There was roasted malt and caramel but a terrible vomit smell that came in and out. Pour was a nice enough medium brown with a one finger off white head. Taste wasn’t very good. The aroma of the vomit was unavoidable. There was roasted caramel malt and a staleness to the flavor but it was hard to find anything enjoyable. Decent carbonation. Halfway through the beer I was wishing I had something else (which is rare)

Martinus (4538) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2012
Reddish brown colour, tan head. Aroma of caramel, malts, little fruity hops. Sweet malty flavour, caramel. Finish caramel, very light on the hops.
Quite OK, even though brown ale isn’t one of my favourite styles.
(Draught @ Cafe Samson, Nijmegen)

Nsanders (1015) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 23, 2012
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.
