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.

Tasted on tap at the Celebrator Anniversary Party on 2/20/2011. This brown ale pours a medium reddish brown color from the tap. Small to medium sized beige/tan foamy head with decent lacing. The aroma is caramel, fruity, malty and citrusy. A medium bodied brown ale. The malts are fruity, caramel and bready. Touch of brown sugar and molasses. The hops are citrusy. Nice balance. Good carbonation. The citrusy hop balance well with the malts, it not just another “boring” brown beer. Nice session ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Celebrator 23rd anniversary party 2011. Theres always a certain sophistication to Anchors beers and this one is no exception. It pours a beautiful reddish brown with a nice tan head. The aroma is somewhat fruity with some raisins, plums and toasted malts with some and a hint of molasses. The flavor is very strong and rich for a brown ale. Theres hints of molasses and brown sugar, but it remains very dry. Toasted malts take the forefront in a long finish. Medium bitterness at the end. Nice new addition for Anchor.

On tap at Zeitgeist during SF Beer Week. Served in an Anchor Brewing glass printed with the Brekle’s Brown label to celebrate the new release (shoulda grabbed one as a souvenier). Pours dark brown with an off-white head. Lots o’ carmel malt flavor (as advertised) and enough hops to balance. I tried Anchor Bock recently, and was put off by the sweetness of the style. Brekle’s Brown Ale is a fine addition to their brew portfolio that includes the legendary Anchor Steam beer, a sublime Porter, and my personal favorite: Liberty Ale.
