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.

Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Draft. Crystal clear brown appearance with a light tan minimal head. Appears to have ok lacing. Not a bad entry in the brown ale. Better than bad penny bad that’s not saying much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2012
bottle, Coppers, Ncl. Beautiful foaming reddy brown pour, with a lovely thick head. Huge sweet malt aromas, brown sugar and bread looms large, plenty of fizz on the tongue and a sweet strawberry swallow. Some bitterness in the finish and aftertaste that is slightly tart and brings in orange citrus. Very English style full bodied brown ale

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Bottle. Aroma has notes of toasted bread and caramel malts. Notes of chocolate, nuts and citrus fruits. Dark brown hue with a small off-white head with little lace. Flavor is medium sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is medium bodied watery average. Overall a decent brown ale that’s malty and easy drinking.

nick76 (4379) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2012
The aroma is moderately sweet with caramel, toasted malt and chocolate. There is also a decent amount of herbal hops. The appearance is medium brow with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall a pretty good session beer but nothing special.

A decent brown ale. Pours pretty light. Smells very fruity, like raspberries, but weirdly, does not taste like it smells. Taste is smooth, but a little boring. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KlextonGaze (60) - Franklinville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 3, 2012
1/2 650ml into pint poured fiery amber with moderate khaki head diminishing fairly quick. Toasty malt character with nutty, caramel embellishment. Bit unusual herbaceous woodiness and light cocoa emerging on taste. Bitter tinge rounding it out. Quirky, but plenty drinkable.

Pinball (11959) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2016 bottle, trade with papsoe. clear amber, large smooth creamy brown head. aroma of toffee, caramel, malts, hops, dry hoppy nutty aroma. flavor is slightly citrussy, malty, hoppy, flowery, nutty, I’m afraid this might be very slightly infected, or perhaps it’s just the nutty malts playing subtle citrussy tricks. Very bitter, malty bitter, wood, the very slightly infected like note could be the citra doing a flowery citrussy thing to the beer. the beer appears nonheavy and easy to drink, however complexity and bitterness makes it a beer for the geek nevertheless.[747214] re-rate 1016-10-07 bottle from kiwi. cloudy brown, smooth light brown head. us hoppy and lightly roasted malty aroma, also notes of coffee, flavor is malts, good us hoppy to flowery balance, faint fruitiness, slightly yeasty. old rating stands.
