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.

Great throwback label on the trademark teardrop-shaped Anchor bottle. The beer is nearly the same color as the bottle glass, perhaps a bit darker, with a ruddy-tan head. A big, plummy-sweet aroma with lots of west coast hops. Sweetish, dark fruit flavors, tangy, and a bit astringent. Medium body. Has an off finish - woody, tangy and makes my tongue curl a bit. As it warms, the finish reminds me of English bitter or pale ale. I’ve got to admit that I was disappointed - it had a good look and a good aroma but didn’t come off. New Leaf Market.

Awesome beer! Rich and flavorful. Beer like this is the reason I love beer. Maltiness that reminds you of liquor. Real nice dry grainy aspect. Halfway through this beer I had to go make me some authentic German sausage and sauerkraut with caraway seed of course.

Bottle. Deep copper pour with a nice foamy off-white head. Nose is dark fruit, earthy malt, and grass. Medium palate, noticeable carbonation. Taste is citrus hops, malt, and grass. I’m really enjoying this one.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - FEB 6, 2012
A clear brown colored beer, with a thick foamy beige head. The aroma of fruits with hops and spices. The taste has some citrus with hop bitter and notes of spices in the back. The aftertaste is bittersweet.

Seem to be coming across a lot of brown ales lately. This one is brown with a good head. There’s a lot of soft malt roastiness here with only a bit of hops coming through. I grabbed a six pack of this one and seem to enjoy it more as I live with the flavor.

Odd shaped overgrown Anchor bottle style bomber purchased from Canal’s Hainesport. Poured a good looking reddish/brown body with a medium sized frothy light beige head. Aroma is way too fuity. Notes of black & blueberries, toast, touch of chocolate, wet grass, cola. Medium syrupy bodied, strong tight bubly carbonation, sweetness on the finsh. Falvor of berries, toast, light chocolate, touch of glue. Meh this is just odd.

12oz bottle. Clear red/brown color, a nice tan head, some lace. Sharp carbonation. Some chocolate aroma, nuttiness. A bit of sweet taste. Some hop. An OK brown, neither bad nor particularly interesting.

650ml bottle from Beers of Europe. An attractive looking bottle, and the beer initially seems pleasing, but ends up feeling like a poorly made home brew. It feels kind of amateurish. The hop choice doesn’t sit well with the malts. The hops are bright and citric,and the malts are dark, sweet and malty. The hop is slightly over done, giving a sickly taste, and intruding throughout. My gosh, a pint of this is a lot to wade through. It’s drinkable, but only just.

Brown color with a medium head. Sweet malt aroma. Slick, sweet malt taste. Nutty. Something approaching a moldy character.

Bottle [660ml?] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a deep ruby with a massive long lasting frothy tan head. Mild aroma of caramel malt, light sugariness, dark fruit, toast and nuts. Flavour is malty along with light hops, some sugary sweetness, dark fruit and toast. Average bodied. Eh, it’s alright, just O.K.
