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.

Dark, with small lacy head. Aroma is sweet, has ripe berries like anchor chirstmas beers. Flavor is really sweet too with notes of cherries and chocolate. Complex but not exactly to my taste.

Drink cool 10-12°C Eye: Pours a hazy reddish-brown color with a small white to beige head which dissipates slowly but steadily. Not much carbonation though. oily texture while pouring in the glass. Nose: nuts, sweet and sour candy, raisins, red berries, yeasty notes. When the beer gets warmer there are, and don’t take this the wrong way - hints of gravy. Mouth: fruit bread/cake with candied fruit, nuts as well, slightly yeasty. Palate: strong coffee and chocolate malts but also hops. yeasty touch still there. nicely balanced and roasted nuts. slight Ovomaltine notes with milk as well. Overall: My second Anchor beer tasting and no surprise for me. Not too strong, nicely balanced, just a very nice brown ale which I’ll definitely have again. I especially like the fact, that there’s something left after filling a 0.33l dimple glass :-). A really great beer.

Un bombón floral de naranja y fresas ácidas con un delicioso punto de azahar. Paladar bien construido, tostado y refrescante al tiempo.

TEJA (1399) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle from Citymarket in Kouvola. Very nice Brown head ove a perfectly clear Deep dark red-Brown beer. Small aroma from roasted malts and a tuch of citrus from the hops. Usually the Citra hops gets wery artificial but here in small amounts it ok. Sweet malty but not so much from cara malt. Big body and low bitterness.
