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.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, hops.

Echon (370) - Århus, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2016
Dark mahogany. Hoppy aroma with dried fruit. Malty, spicy and fruity, with a rather dry taste and a finish with a rounded bitterness. Sour notes. Medium body. Overall, just above average brown ale. Good aroma, but the taste is far too dry for me.

Punertavan tummanruskea vähäisellä, beigellä vaahdolla. Tuoksussa ruisleipää, paahteista maltaisuutta ja jopa kahvia ja sokeria sekä toisaalta häivähdys hedelmäisempään viittaavaa jenkkihumalointia. Myös maku varsin monivivahteinen sisältäen paahteista maltaisuutta ja ruisleipää, aavistus kahvia sekä suklaata. Toisaalta myös eksottinen hedelmäisyys nostaa päätään ja jälkimaussa on myös sitruksista happamuutta, joka lienee Citra-humaloinnin ansiota. Keskitäyteläisen ja kevyen välimaastossa oleva suutuntuma. Ihan alun pettymyksen jälkeen tämä yllättäen toimiikin ihan kohtalaisesti. Jännä yhdistelmä.

Gehbe (231) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - AUG 7, 2016
Pours brown with a nice light brown head. Lovely nose of toast, baguette crust, dried fruit, resin. Taste is well balanced between medium sweetness and bitterness. Very smooth palate, medium carbonation. One of my favourite brown ales.

nazzty (1271) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2016
I love the citra hops, so I had som high expectations on this one. Unfortunately the malty body is way too dominant and the citra hops are struggling to get that space of attention in an overall sweet and creamy brownie.

DrNosha (1680) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - JUL 21, 2016
12oz Flasche. Tolle rot-braune Farbe. Cremiger hellbrauner Schaum. Nussiges Malzaroma. Ich rieche auch den Hopfen und verbrannter Zucker. Der Geschmack ist kanntig. Malzige Süsse, dann Hopfen und Hopfenbittere. Dann Lakritz und verbranntes Karamell. Kräuterbitter fast etwas beißend im Finnish. Ist ein gutes Bier, aber mir persönlich zu unrund.

MelvinKalksma (946) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2016

Aroma:
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, nuts, bread, dried fruit and hops.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque ruby/brown beer with a slight/medium beige head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, nuts and dried fruit; ends slightly dry with bread and hops.

Overall:
This beer is rather complex and balanced, but could have been more intense. The brown malts, dash of roasted malts and the citra hops make this beer rather unique.
