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.

KlextonGaze (60) - Franklinville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 3, 2012
1/2 650ml into pint poured fiery amber with moderate khaki head diminishing fairly quick. Toasty malt character with nutty, caramel embellishment. Bit unusual herbaceous woodiness and light cocoa emerging on taste. Bitter tinge rounding it out. Quirky, but plenty drinkable.

Pinball (11932) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2012
bottle, trade with papsoe. clear amber, large smooth creamy brown head. aroma of toffee, caramel, malts, hops, dry hoppy nutty aroma. flavor is slightly citrussy, malty, hoppy, flowery, nutty, I’m afraid this might be very slightly infected, or perhaps it’s just the nutty malts playing subtle citrussy tricks. Very bitter, malty bitter, wood, the very slightly infected like note could be the citra doing a flowery citrussy thing to the beer. the beer appears nonheavy and easy to drink, however complexity and bitterness makes it a beer for the geek nevertheless.

BrewBoxer (2593) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Bottle. Deep brown , big head that fades, smells of ood, oak and some rich malt. Not what I expected from one of my fav brewers. Easy drinking, light on the palate , some slight smokinerss at the end but not flavorful at all. Average

PapaSkeetSkeet (1008) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 27, 2012
walnut with dirty seafoam head. Aroma is grassy with a bit of moldy rock and chlorinated pool. Medium, creamy body with moderate carbonation. Astringent, unpleasant bitterness, rather metallic, almost chemical. Yuck. It’s more drinkable then a beer that is going bad, but really, a good ol’ American brown? I think not. A disappointing night for beers- 0 for 3.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Poured into a snifter. 3.0 A: Deep transluscent amber brown color. A little over one finger of frothy beige head. Retenion is perhaps a hair below average and a "barely there" ring of lacing is left. 3.0 S: Strange aroma. The dominant component is some novel mix of cocoa powder and flowers with herbal undertones. Toasted malts with anise and caramel. Light, raisiny fruitiness. 3.0 T: Cocoa powder/flowers/herbs mix that tastes just as strange as it smells. Raisin, toasted malts, faint roastiness. Doughy malts overall. 4.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation that somehow in conjunction with the body makes this feel a lot like a beer from cask. Good creaminess, very nice. 3.5 D: Strange, but tasty beer that has a damn good mouthfeel. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-31-2012 03:29:43

ilovedarkbeer (2712) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Pours a mahogany color with a canvas colored yeasty head. Notes of roasted nuts, caramel, earthy hops, and greenery. Little watery and kind of boring.

bigtaster (899) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Bottle in tumbler, pours a clear dark red-brown color with a huge beige head that slowly dissipates. Lots of brown sugar on the nose, maybe some orange peel as it warms there is nice spicy nose, candy like. Flavor is unique with subtle fruity almost belgian like sweetness, banana, software citrus hops. Unique brown ale with great complexity.
