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.

Appearance: Reddish brown in color with generous quantity of head. Aroma: Dominated by sweet toffee malt aroma, hints of citrus and tropical fruit. Taste: Big malt flavor with good bitterness to keep the maltyness at bay. Finishes with some of the fruit detected in the aroma. Moderate levels of carbonation and dryness keep this beer from being cloyingly sweet. Overall: an excellent brown in my opinion, definitely recommended.

HuskerTan (484) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle. A- Caramel, toffee, malts, slightly sweet, citrus, toast, nuts, dark fruits. A- Reddish brown color, clear liquid, dark tan head. T- Caramel, citrus, mild bitterness, malts, slighty sweet, toast, toffee, raisins. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, complex finish. O- Unlike any brown ale I’ve had. A unique taste of malts and citrus. Gotta love those citrus hops and who would’ve thought they would work so well with caramel and toffee notes. Solid all around. I did prefer it much more cold than at room temp but a rich complex taste like no other.

Case (239) - GERMANY - AUG 17, 2014
Pours dark brown with medium head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is quite hoppy, freshly cut grass, herbal, citrus, caramel. Taste is a solid malt base, caramel and toffee, on the sweet side. Light nuttyness, very light bitterness. Rather unremarkable and simple, like a brown paper bag.

adster (203) - HUNGARY - AUG 17, 2014
Igazán figyelemreméltó alkotás az Anchor háza tájáról. Mahagóni vörös színben pompázó ital rendkívül összetett, leginkább az aszalt gyümölcsök, kékszőlő, egy árnyalatnyi vörösbor illatával, valamint a porterek és milk stoutok határán egyensúlyozó aromákkal. Íze nemkülönben érdekes, elsősorban itt is aszalt gyümölcsök, füge, datolya karaktere domborodik ki egy selymesen malátás, tökmagos, kenyérhéjas testben, mely afféle jellegzetességekkel rendelkezik, amiket sokkal vaskosabb karakterű főzeteknél tapasztalhatunk. Igazán impozáns darab, mely többféle típus jellemvonásaival büszkélkedhet, mégis egy igazán eredeti, szinte ritkaságszámba menően egyedi sör. Mindenképpen megéri kipróbálni.

Unde (346) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Clear brown red looks with big and bold beige head, a nice looking beer. Aroma has lemon, sweet malts and red berries. Taste starts with berries, then zesty lemon and ending with nuts and malts. Medium body and medium+ carbonation. A pleasant surprise!

MacBoost (1249) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - AUG 15, 2014
12oz. Pours a light, clear brown with a light tan head. Aromas of citrus and caramel. Taste is semi dry and lightly bitter. Flavors of caramel, light citrus rind, biscuits. Low carb. I don’t know, I guess it’s ok. Didn’t blow me away. Simplistic and solid. Finish is semi sweet and lightly citrusy.
