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.

BeerandBlues2 (10542) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear brown with a large, frothy light tan head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is cookie, light caramel, nutty, and toast malt with earthy, minty, and woody hops alongside cooked apples/pears and figs. Flavor is malty sweetness with moderate hops and bitterness, light fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Almaco (6) - FINLAND - APR 29, 2015 does not count
The roasted malts and strong carbonation makes this a rich but light drop. A good depth of flavour without being over powerful. Burnt caramel hits first then some subtle hops - dark fruits mostly. Well worth a try

Dark brown colour with almost no head. Aroma and flavours of hops, roasted malts, some dark fruit notes and citrous. Well done balance betwen maltiness and hoppiness, but still something missing. I was not impressed.

SkillsFactory (43) - ITALY - APR 12, 2015
Color marrone chiaro, mediamente carbonata, schiuma color nocciola abbastanza fine con una persistenza medio-bassa. Al naso caramello, uva passa e note citriche. In bocca inizialmente prevale il dolce del malto, successivamente la bevuta è equilibrata dall'amaro dei malti tostati (cacao) e dalle note citriche date dai luppoli. Corpo medio che lascia un retrogusto dolce estremamente gradevole.

beeebon (254) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2015
Bottle. Pours a brown mahogany clear colour with large foamy tan head which soon goes down leaving a lingering top. Aroma is rich malt, molasses and slight citrus notes. Taste is sweet and bitter, nicely balnces providing complexity. Substantial mouth feel, quite slick and nice. Overall this is a fine beer, what I have come to expect from this brewery.

Pours a brown color. Thin head and a aroma of malt and nuts. The flavor was good with a hint of sweet malt and nuts, maybe a touch of chocolate.

Poured a medium brown with a small head. Had an upfront caramel with nutty flavor that rounded out into a more vegetable taste with dry hops.
