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.

Versa marrone scuro con riflessi intensi di rosso.Odore di luppolo, spezie. . Schiuma beige lieve ma durevole. Aroma di caramello, luppolo, lievito e un pò di cacao. Sapori molto contrastanti , ma comunque ben equilibrati. Qualche amarezza, amabile. Frizzantezza(orrenda parola da pubblicità) vivace.Finale leggermente dolce. Più che soddisfacente nel complesso. Vorrei trovarla più spesso nei negozi.

Nice aroma and taste. My current favorite brown. Spruce, bubblegum aroma. Taste shows a bit more of the hops.

Klar brun med cremefarvet stabilt skum. Duft af blomster, malt og karamel. Smagen er sød og livlig med let syrlighed. Mørkristet malt giver en vis bitterhed, der sammen med humlen balancerer sødmen rigtig flot. Rigtig god moderne fortolkning af en brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaske 0,33l fra Alko Muonio. Drukket på RV124 4 Jan 14. Dyp amber. Høyt luftig skum som varer. Kniplingslacing. God aroma av karamell & frukt. Smaken det samme med tilfyelse av plommer.

Bottle. Dark brown with toffee head. Creamy milk chocolate mouthfeel. Not as much of a chocolatey palate as I expected. Smooth caramel and malt flavor. For a heavy brau this goes down quick and easy.

Brune, carbo tres moyenne petit collet mais belle dentelle. Aromes tres portés sur le caramel, fruits sec grilles, pointe chocolat. Belle presence en bouche, ample et genereuse. Bonne longueur sur le caramel. Legere secheresse en final.

Sweet, nutty and well-balanced. Pours dark brown with a sweet caramel aroma. Very smooth and drinkable.

Bottle - Rosy cola-colored with a thin, foamy tan head. Nose is chocolate, rye bread, and a hint of coffee. A tiny bit of Citra dankness, but it’s muted. It’s a weird combo. Taste is more of the chocolate/rye bread maltiness, the light oniony dankness, mineral, and a bitter chocolate, slightly metallic finish. Finishes sourly bitter, with an odd yeastiness. Thin, fluffy, and well-carbonated. Just doesn’t come together well, and has an odd bitter yeasty note just like the Anchor Bock. I’m unimpressed.

Fresh bottle drunk in 2011
Sandy brown body, with deep mahogany and graham cracker hues. Clear with a moderate amount of off-white head that lingers around a cover.
Hoppiness in the nose is quite aromatic and intertwined pretty well with the lightly toasted, nutty and rather sweet brown bread meets light milk chocolate maltiness. Citrus and a touch of tropical fruitiness are certainly not resinous or overly aggressive, nor is the alcohol problematic. Quite simple, with a medium strength overall.
At first the juicy hoppiness really shines, lending notes of lychee and candied orange, nicely combining with the sweet chocolate-like maltiness. Things dry out, with some huskiness/crackeriness (great word, crackeriness) and the carbonation takes hold and breaks up the maltiness. As it warms and breathes, with most anchor beers, the body becomes loose and quite watery, the sweetness builds up on the finish and the beer loses a lot of its initial pleasantness. Still, this is a fine, drinkable brown ale with a well-done hop profile and ample bitterness.
