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.

If a brown ale was hanging out in a bakery too long, this would be the result.... in a good way. Love the malt, the toasted nose. Creamy cookies, cardamom, other spices. Easy to drink. Light for a brown ale, but no lack of flavor.

Fules (909) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - APR 4, 2016
Hatalmas, tartós hab, barna szín. Karamelles, gabonás illat. Gyenge ízvilág, keserűjét csak a száj hátsó részén érezni, karamell csak nyomokban, inkább égetett cukor, de az is alig. Ahogy melegszik javul a helyzet, de nem annyira, mint kellene. Gyenge kis nedű, az anchortól nem erre számítottam. Utóíze a korty folytatása. Közepesen testes, de ehhez hagyni kell melegedni, sokat!

Aroma of creamy roasted malts and gingerbread. Kinda reminds me of the Anchor Merry Christmas beer but less spicy. But the cinnamon and gingerbread is there. Nice light dry hops. Very enjoyable and balanced brew.

Superbe robe brune aux reflets ambrés, mousse crémeuse. Nez tout en élégance sur des notes lactées, caramélisées, épicées, fruitées. Bouche ŕ l’attaque crémeuse, une superbe élégance, une bulle fine et une finale acidulée. Une trčs belle brune raffraîchissante.

Swaroga (2129) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAR 13, 2016
Brown and cloudy with a medium head. The beer has a burned cake, cinnamon, vanilla, caramel, nuts and some chocolate cake aromas. Watery with medium carbonation. The taste is like aroma but more fade and dry. Earthy and spicy dry on the tongue, medium long finish. Easy to drink and not bad beer overall.
