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.

12oz bottle from Downer Wine and Spirits. Pours a deep, reddish-brown color with a tan head. Aroma is dark fruit, cherry, raisin. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, nutty, caramel, toffee, with a malty, sweet finish. A fine brown ale.

DuffMan (10421) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 10, 2012
Bottle. Dark brown with copper highlights and a rocky tan head that shows great retention. Aroma is very nice, sweet brown sugar and breadcrusts, hints of fruit. Nice malty palate, dark and sweet, with a very dry bitter finish. Certainly tasty, yet marred considerably by over carbonation and a hard mouthfeel. Some metal in the finish.

I stayed up all night to see where the sun went. Then it dawned on me.

phaleslu (10239) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Sample from a bottle at Microfest 2012. Pours a somewhat hazy chestnut color with a big, frothy off-white head. Notes of hazelnut, caramel, brown sugar, citrusy hops, wet tobacco leaves, and sweet bread. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a soft, bready mouthfeel that ends with a dank leafiness. Good brown.

ronaldtheriot (1932) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Brekle’s Brown has a very thick, creamy, tan head and a clear, bubbly, brown appearance, with some lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, brown bread and a flash of hops; the taste is likewise of sweet brown bread, brown sugar, mild hop bitterness, and some caramel candy aspects. There were even some chocolate notes with this one. Mouthfeel is medium, and Brekle’s Brown finishes refreshing, semi-dry, and easy drinking. It’s a most excellent beer. RJT
