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.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, hops.

albinotron (36) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Aroma of grassy hops upon cracking open the bottle. Smelled again and got a bit of nutty malt. Upon tasting, the malt is really on display here with the hops rounding it out nicely. There is more sweetness on the front end of the flavor than I was expecting. The hop flavor is apparent, but well balanced. I love this and will definitely be getting it again. I might even say this is better than Bell’s Best Brown Ale.

MelvinKalksma (744) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2016

Aroma:
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, nuts, bread, dried fruit and hops.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque ruby/brown beer with a slight/medium beige head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, nuts and dried fruit; ends slightly dry with bread and hops.

Overall:
This beer is rather complex and balanced, but could have been more intense. The brown malts, dash of roasted malts and the citra hops make this beer rather unique.

Holdwine (1159) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - APR 30, 2016
If a brown ale was hanging out in a bakery too long, this would be the result.... in a good way. Love the malt, the toasted nose. Creamy cookies, cardamom, other spices. Easy to drink. Light for a brown ale, but no lack of flavor.
