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.

Oldschool_Mike (160) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 27, 2015
Bottle into pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy brown colour with a finger on light tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and over ripe stone fruit. Taste is about the same with a bit of sweetness. Not my favorite beer but it’s alright.

JaTuJa (16) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 24, 2015
Ompahan taas hyvä olut päätynyt käsiin! Ulkonäöltään olut on syvän ruskea ja kohtuu runsaasti beigeä vaahtoava muodostava. Tämä tuo mieleen jotain vanhanaikaista...kiehtovaa. Tuoksu on runsas, ja sitä hallitsevat tummat hedelmät, pääasiassa luumu. Myös pähkinää ja mallasta mahtuu mukaan yhdessä keksimäisyyden ja hennon suklaan sekä sitruksen kanssa. Tämähän vaikuttaa oikeen lupaavalta! Suutuntuma on keskitäyteläinen, pehmeä, hieman kuitenkin vetinen, mutta jollain tapaa todella puhdistavan tuntuinen. Maussa on paljon samaa kuin tuoksussa, mutta mukaan tulee makeaa/karamellista maltaisuutta sekä hentoa paahteisuutta. Mielettömän hieno, tyylikäs ja vivahteikas, mutta silti tasapainoinen nautiskeluolut. Voisin kuvitella tämän sopivan joulupöytään erinomaisesti.

Pours a deep mahogany with a big rocky head. Nose is raisin, almond, caramel malt, piney/ floral hop. Palate is fairly light to medium with some prickly carbonation. Some dry stone fruit and caramelly, bready malt. Mild piney hops. A touch sweet. Decent brown.
