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.

Dark amber, little head or carbonation. Very malty without being sticky or sugary sweet. Some fruit flavor like tropic. Full flavored but not heavy, drinkable.

Draft at a tasting event. From notes. Citrus and caramel with a decent tropical fruit kick. A little bitter grapefruit in there too. Not too bad.

Pours a dark brown colour with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, malts, malts, malts... You got that right, this is a malty brew, with a slight presence of citra hop in the aroma. Noticed caramel, toffee and hops. Very enjoyable Brown Ale.

Excalibur123 (473) - Soria, SPAIN - DEC 18, 2013
Color ámbar claro, cabeza de espuma beige que perdura en el vaso; buenos aromas a malta tostada, galleta y frutos secos, en boca entrada suave con carbónico medio y cuerpo ligero, amargor equilibrado con notas a pan tostado, va evolucionando según toma temperatura dejando un pos gusto agradable y un tanto dulce.

Pitch black with no carbonation and a nice big creamy head. Smell is leather toffee with dark fruit and lightly alcoholic. Liquorice bitter salty taste with coffee. Dry liquorice finish. Very well balanced and very bitter.

GraveAtSea (139) - Lublin, POLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle. Brown/dark amber color with nice and huge creamy head. Aroma of tropical fruits, hops, caramel, malts - lovely. Smooth hoppy, fruity taste with caramel, bread and malty background. Nice balance between bitterness and sweetness. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Very drinkable and refreshing beer. I’m pleasantly surprised.

Migmar (255) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Dark brown, almost no head. Fruits (citrus), spruce, caramel. Medium-full palate. Medium sweetness and bitterness. Very American-style hoppiness, a nice brown ale with some IPAish characteristics.
