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.

Skinnyviking (6746) - 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 (975) - 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 (23) - 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)
