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.

Large head with bubbling brown body. Higher carbonation level than most brownies. This better has a slightly astringent flavor which may be from the choice of a singular hop, the Citra.

simontomlinson (38) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2016
Light beige creamy head soon left a blob on a dark brown thick looking body. Malty aroma with brown sugar, plum & dark spirits. Medium body feel on the palate quite clean & prickly on the aft. Very malty & not too sweet, which is different to many UK Brown Ale’s, with stewed dark fruits, plum & faint hints of sugar.

Echon (416) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2016
Dark mahogany. Hoppy aroma with dried fruit. Malty, spicy and fruity, with a rather dry taste and a finish with a rounded bitterness. Sour notes. Medium body. Overall, just above average brown ale. Good aroma, but the taste is far too dry for me.
