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.

Excalibur123 (416) - 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.

Bosskie (838) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2013
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.

I’m an Anchor fan and this beer makes me love them more. Nice Citra hop flavor with malt complexity and not cloyingly sweet. Really like this.

Andy_ (1079) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 14, 2013
Clear reddish-brown beer with a huge blonde head. Aroma has hoppy pine, tropical fruits, citrus and grapefruit with nutty and sweet caramelly malts. Taste is not as nice as the aroma, it’s woody dry, nutty, licoricy, citrusy and grapefruity bitter. Mouthfeel is thinner than medium and medium carbonated. Finish is pretty mild and short considering the amount of hop aromas. A pretty nice brown ale but maybe a bit unbalanced

mikkos (306) - FINLAND - DEC 14, 2013
Dark brown with a smallish head. Aroma is sweet malts, syrupy, spicyness, hint of alcohol. Taste is malt all over, a hint of hops somewhere. Mouthfeel a bit light. Finishes with a light bitterness. Rather okay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tadahster (112) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 13, 2013
Honey. Bread. Alcohol sweetness with a sting. Malt bomb leaving little room for the citra hops. However a better specimen of the horrid brown ale style.

SperkeleForce (791) - FINLAND - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle 35,5 cl. Darker copper in color with brownish medium lacing head. Notes of chocolate, roasted, toasty, nuts, syrup, caramel, earthy, spices. Pretty heavy malted, could use more hops. The balance of hops and malts seem wrong. Bit harsh.
