Anchor Brekle's Brown (355ml Bottle)
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. Marks special blend of roasted malts, inspired by the all-malt brown ales in Anchors brewing archives, gives Brekle's Brown its coppery brown colour and its unusual depth of flavour, richness and complexity without heaviness. For brewing and dry hopping, Mark has chosen a single, American hop variety called Citra. The subtly entrancing flavours and aromas of this distinctive new hop perfectly complement the unique maltiness of Brekle's Brown.
Color ranges from reddish-brown to dark brown. Lower in alcohol than porter, medium to full body flavor. Appropriate foods are apple pie, pork with brown sauce, beef vegetable soup and cheddar.
