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.

Had on tap. Arrived in a pint glass a clear dark brown with a smallish head. Aroma was heavy on the roast with a lot of dark chocolate and toasted malt. Some espresso aroma as well. Flavor was a touch tart with dark fruit in addition to the roast characteristics. Dark chocolate and espresso round out the flavor. Mouthfeel is somewhat light with a lingering sweetness but it compliments the rest of the beer nicely. Overall, a decent brown ale and a solid brew from Anchor.

[email protected] Light nutty aroma with toffee, malts and berries. Brown, beige head, good lace. Nutty, malty, quite hoppy. Medium body. Flavourful, easy going.

Bouteille de 12oz. Best before 3 2014. Partagée par Patrick. Bière de couleur noisette foncée avec une mousse brune-beige. Au nez les arômes sont passablement discrets, il y a de la noisette, du chocolat, du grain grillé et ce qui semble être du citron provenant de l’ajout de houblon citra. En bouche le liquide goute bon le malt, les noisettes grillées, le chocolat. Il y a des esters fruités et la finale est sur les houblons sucrés. Le houblon citra m’a semblé être un mauvais choix pour une brown ale. 6/10

jandd1983 (4017) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. It poured a brown color with a tiny white head. The aroma was rich with maltiness. The taste was cocoa, malt, lightly nuttiness with a light after taste. Decent.

Embrouille (2843) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 8, 2012
Bottled 355ml. Inviting hoppy nose with piney hops and fudge showing up. Creamy palate. Strong bitterness. Slightly salty. Good malt profile. Chocolatey with piney hops. Nice balance. Medium bodied. Dry finish which is reminiscent of licorice. Deeply pleasant and flawless.

BeerandBlues2 (12474) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear brown with a large, frothy light tan head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is cookie, light caramel, nutty, and toast malt with earthy, minty, and woody hops alongside cooked apples/pears and figs. Flavor is malty sweetness with moderate hops and bitterness, light fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Une bouteille fraîche de mon ami Steve. Meilleure avant mars 2014. Une robe magnifique avec ses reflets bruns et rouges. Une tête crémeuse qui n’exagère jamais. Un nez de caramel et de notes grillées avec des touches de noix et des pointes fruitées. Dans la première moitié de la dégustation, une présence de fruits rouges. Dans la deuxième moitié, des notes d’agrumes. Au goût, des saveurs bien plaisantes de caramel et de noix rôties. Une présence houblonnée bien fruitée. Toujours cette présence de petites baies à travers ces belles pointes citriques. Une bouche de moyenne densité avec un apport normal des bulles et une texture huileuse. Une finale qui permet l’étendue d’une fine amertume de houblons à travers quelques notes rôties. Une bière facile à boire et grandement cohésive. J’adore cette maison.

Bottled. Poured brown in colour with tan head. Nutty, malty and a little bit of fruitiness in aroma. Bready malty with some herbal hoppy notes in flavour.

benpickens (491) - Camarillo, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Muddy brown with medium head that builds with little agitation and leaves ample lacing; brown sugar and molasses with citrus aroma; hops upfront... Not a mild brown but a hop forward one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
