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.

lord_totenkopf (310) - Budapest, - JAN 25, 2013
Dark brown body, big yellow-brownish head, mildly fizzy. Aroma of malts, some bread, roasted malt, a bit of coffee and cookies. Really complex maltyness with both roasted and fresh notes. Taste is more bitter, leaves a hoppy trace on the back of the tongue, bit alcoholic. Bitter finish. Good brew.

Pours hazy brown color with medium white head. Slightly hoppy nose. Aroma of nuts, malt, caramel. Creamy texture. Soft carbonation. Medium body. Easy to drink. The one I wouldn’t mind to drink every day.

Douberd (2084) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2014
355ml bottle at home, thanks to MarkoNm. Poured into a snifter, ABV 6% Deep red brown colour on the body, with one finger of light brown head siting on top, thick, with great retention. Medium lacing left on the glass. Lovely aroma of caramel, dark fruits and hops, some sugar too. Taste is very good as well, again burnt caramel, sugars, lightky roasted malts even, dates, prunes, a bit of hoppy bitterness on the finish and the aftertaste. Medium thick body with average carbonation, dry but also a bit sticky on the palate. Great beer, reallly liked it.

SDalkoholic (2141) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle from the Best Damn Beer Shop: Started off with a thick pillow of foamed head that reminded me of Guinness Draught where as the liquid was a medium shade of brown. In the aroma, a buttery scent of lightly toasted malts in congruence with a nutty scent of nuts while all still having a scent of Anchor Brewing’s signature smell of beer. Also, reminds me of a very subdued aroma of Anchor’s Our Special Ale minus the spices. The flavor is well balanced between a touch of toasty malts and an earthy almost herbal taste of hops that suggest strong flavors of honey. What an amazing brown ale that didn’t disappoint from Anchor.

Skinnyviking (6782) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle. Medium high creamy off-white lasting head. Clear dark brown body. Sweet roasted malt caramel cocoa aroma. Mild and sweet cocoa caramel nuts flavor on a solid roasted malt base. Fair level of hops bitterness. Low carbonation. Long finish. Normally I regard this type of beer as quite boaring. This one is, however, quite nice and a pleasant surprise as it is quite well balanced, not too sweet and has a pleasant alcohol level.

Kita (996) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle, 0.355l. Hazy copper brown color with medium creamy tan-like head and good lacing. Aroma of citrus, dark fruits, pine, caramel and medicine. Taste starts with rich light sweet malt, follows by refreshing lemon, herbs and notes of alcohol, while finish is heavy bitter. Full body, thick texture and fizzy natural carbonation. Excellent, very similar to Belgian strong ales...

Pepinis (33) - SPAIN - JUL 10, 2014
Cerveza de color marrón con reflejos cobrizos. Tiene buena formación de espuma pero no destaca por su estabilidad. Su aroma es de malta tostada con notas que recuerdan a caramelos de toffee, frutos secos como las avellanas o nueces y suaves toques cítricos proporcionados por el lúpulo (citra, single hop). Su sabor se corresponde muy bien con el aroma pero tal vez como novedad estén las notas suavemente licorosas y amaderadas. Cuerpo medio, buena carbonatación y muy buen "drinkability". Una brown ale muy rica y que cumple perfectamente los parámetros del estilo. (Botella, 355 ml)
