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.

Pours ruby red with a small khaki head. Nose is brown sugar, roasted malts and overall pretty sweet. Flavor is somewhat boring with light roast, fruitiness and some brown sugar. Some hop bitterness come through in the finish leaving the mouth dry. Not bad.

like liquid brown sugar, so easy to drink, and not overly sweet like i imagined, enough hoppiness to add a little zing. really good.

rjplumer (406) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 4, 2011
Crispy hop aroma. Deep ruby red color with a tan one finger head. Mild bitterness with sweet clean finish. Tingly on the tongue. Well balanced between the Citra hops and mild bitterness. I’m liking this more and more with each mouthful. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

arondee (568) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Pours a chocolate brown with a thick tan head and good lacing. Aroma is strong malt. The taste is very malty, thick and sweet with a hint of citrus in the finish. Interesting but a little one dimensional and too malty for me.
