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.

Large head with bubbling brown body. Higher carbonation level than most brownies. This better has a slightly astringent flavor which may be from the choice of a singular hop, the Citra.

Scipio (709) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Pours a clear, reddish brown with a medium, beige head. The aroma consists of caramel, nuts, earthy malts, raisin, and some mild chocolate. Its pretty subtle. The taste is has a heavy caramel and maple. There is some nuttiness, some impressions of cherry and raisin, with hints of chocolate remaining as well. The aftertaste is a sharp, potent dose of caramel with a bit of cherry, though it ends rather quickly. Medium in body, with a thick texture, and about average in carbonation. This isn’t my favorite style, but I’d be pretty happy drinking this again.

355ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Pours a dark amber to brown color. Nutty. Formed a big, bubbled and soapy beige head. Medium retention and lots of soapy and lingering lacings left in the glass. Beautiful beer S: Strong caramel in the nose. Strong notes of toffee, wood, roasted malts and flowery hops. A bit bready too T: Sweet upfront, roasted malts, caramel malts, toffee, wood and nuts. An extremely malty beer. End is hoppy and slightly bitter. Balanced M: Light body. Medium to high carbonation. Roasted malts with a touch of hops in the aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Refreshing. Anchor quality [ BA Review @ 4/1/2013 ]

Calisky (862) - ALSACE, FRANCE - OCT 12, 2014
Couleur brune, reflets caramel, mousse beige qui disparait. Net malté, sucre candy, fruits noirs, voir notes agrumes. Gout caramel un peu brulé, houblon citronné, petite amertume, note reglisse et coriandre. Corps moyen, aromes intenses malgrés 6c°, bien!

radzik5555 (365) - Gdynia, POLAND - OCT 10, 2014
Butelka 0.33L.
Wygląd: Miedziane, klarowne. Kremowa, zbita piana.
Aromat: Przyjemne połączenie aromatów melanoidynowych, karmelowych oraz chmielowych w postaci dojrzałych owoców. Do tego rodzynki, lekki winny aromat i guma balonowa.
Smak: Chlebowy, lekko metaliczny, chmielowy i trochę alkoholowy (jak w anchor IPA a tylko 6%ABV) Goryczka niska, owocowa.
Odczucie: Ciało średnie, nasycenie CO2 powyżej średniego, faktura kremowa.
Całość: Podobnie jak w IPA dziwi posmak alkoholowy. Poza tym łagodne, zbalansowane brown ale.

loco_gallego (95) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 7, 2014
Ambrée brune foncée, sur les tons rouges. Mousse beige, peu persistante, mais beaux dépôts sur les parois. Arômatique beaucoup sur l’houblonnage agrumes, citriques. Maltage caramel, toastage aussi décelable. En bouche entrée sur le caramel, puis on on est vite sur l’amertume et arômes agrumes de l’houblonnage, amertume persistante. Belle longueur grâce au maltage également, duquel on perçoit le côté toasté en fin de bouche.

Kleurplaatje (23) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2014 Poured from a 355ml bottle. Copper-colored with a frothy quick disappearing beige head. Aromas of citrus hops and a bit of caramel are clearly noticable.Tastes mildly bitter due to the present hops and a bit malty in the beginning, ending in a long lasting mildly bitter, creamy and sweet finish (caramel, roasted nuts). Bit of a lovely unexpected warmish mouthfeel also, regarding the 6% alc/vol. Full body, pretty creamy texture and quite mildly carbonated. Indeed, a great palate. Overall, a loveable well-balanced Frisco brew.
