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.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2012
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of Rasmus40. Pours a clear amber with a beige head. Sweet caramellish aroma. Medium body, sweet caramel and very subtle roast with some flowery hops. Hardly any bitterness. Really not a Brown Ale, rather an Amber. 180218

yngwie (15191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2012
Bottle. 22oz. It pours a clear, dark reddish amber body under a dense, small, light beige head. The aroma is roasted and bready, with a pleasant citrus addition. Medium to full body, dry and pleasantly carbonated. The flavor has citrusy hops up front, with caramel, roasted malts and bread in the back. A pleasant brown ale indeed. 120218

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Hhhhmmm, might this be a "brown IPA"??? It’s sort of a mess, but it’s interesting. Pours reddish brown, clear with a soft light beige head and some lacing. Nose is citrusy hops and bready, woody malts. Odd mix of flavors. Some Irish breakfast tea, which also comes though in the somewhat pungent flavor. Bitterness. Soft palate. Interesting for being such an odd beer, but I’m note sure I want much more.
