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.

beelsebob (35) - Cupertino, California, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Rich aroma of burned toast and caramel, Dark red/brown in colour, nice thick beige head. Not overly bitter to taste, slightly salty sweetness. Light and creamy, with a lively carbonation. It’s like drinking salted caramel.

PawelD (229) - Gdańsk, POLAND - NOV 25, 2014
Butelka. Aromat żywiczny, lekko cytrusowy, karmel. Kolor ciemny bursztyn lekko mętny, piana tworzy niski kożuch na powierzchni piwa. Wysycenie średnie skłaniające się do wysokiego. W smaku bardzo wyraziste, karmel, skórka od chleba, kawa zbożowa, nie jest wodniste a zarazem nie jest też gęste, perfekcyjny balans, bardzo aksamitna faktura piwa. Na finiszu subtelna lecz obecna chmielowa goryczka citry i ponownie karmel. Wzorowe Browl Ale.

loubar (50) - Los Gatos, California, USA - NOV 22, 2014
12 oz. bottle from BevMo. The nose reveals a bit of toasty caramel and citrus. The bready and nutty maltiness jumps out in front with subtle floral and fruity hoppiness, probably from the Citra hops, in the background. The opposite of so many of today’s hopped up brews. The creamy light roasted malt and the citrus hops marry perfectly. Slight bitterness in the finish. Very tasty! I think I’ll have another...

On tap - This is a really nice, flavorful brown ale that’s very approachable for the non-beer geek, yet still pleasing to us that are a little persnickity. The aroma carries a nice earthy quality to it, some choco-malt notes and a citrusy aroma that was there, but kept under wraps. Lightly nutty, earthy, cocoa and mild citrus notes in the finish round out the flavors on this quite nicely. I would definitely get this again.

Scipio (714) - 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.

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 (426) - 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 (118) - 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.
