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.

ExpendableHero (901) - Florida, USA - APR 21, 2013
Hazy copper colored beer with an off-white head. Aromas of caramel, and some hints of chocolate. Tastes of earthy notes, caramel, butterscotch, toasted cereals, and some semi-sweet chocolate. Perfect balance of sweet and not too sweet. Earthy, chocolaty finish. Medium bodied and surprisingly robust yet easy to drink. Try it out.

Jamedra (754) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 13, 2013
Láhev 355 ml. Po nalití ovocné aroma s podtóny karamelu a kávy, středně vysoká pěna, poměrně držící, světle hnědé barvy s malými bublinkami. Barva piva je tmavě hnědá a při pohledu proti světlu tmavě rubínová,impozantní ale přitom příjemná pro oko. Po prvním ochutnání je cítit příjemná chuť zralých švestek a karamelu, pivo je sladšího rázu dobře vybalancované s jemnější kávovou hořkostí která rychle odezní. Jedná se o velmi dobře pitelné pivo s originální chutí.

rondphoto (4373) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 11, 2013
Hazy dark ruby amber with a long-lasting ivory head covering and bands of lace. The taste is malt and dark dried fruit that adds bittering as it moves through the palate, returning to an earthy malt in the finish. Not complicated, but a little heavy for a brown ale. Good, worth trying, not great.
