COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after the enormous Brown Trout found in Northwest streams, this beer lives up to the legend. 20" Brown is medium bodied and has an extremely complex malty character. Using 6 varieties of Northwest grown malt, our brewer has created a masterpiece of color, aroma and flavor. Set your hook in one of these and you won't be disappointed!

reebtogi (4038) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 21, 2012
355ml bottle pours brown in color with a 2 finger off-white head that settles down to produce some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and light roasted malts with a hint of chocolate. Taste is light roasted malt bitterness with some caramel sweetness followed up with a mild hoppy bitter finish. Medium body with light carbonation. One of the better brown ales I have tasted over the years.

This is one fine tasting beer. As a Brown Ale, it actually tastes like brown, sweet, delicious, brown.

Zymurgeist2 (934) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 12, 2011
Aroma of nutty malt sweetness. Clear chestnut brown with very little head. Slightly medium-thin mouthfeel. Malty with a little medicine. Chewy for the thin mouthfeel. Not bad.

Sugary cereal aroma. Can’t get enough of that golden crisp! That and Postum. Clean hazelnut brown. Sweet and clean, more cereal, tasty beer.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Draught at the brewhouse in Redmond. Clear brown with a creamy head. Light toasty malt in the aroma but not much. This flavor with just a touch of toasty malt and some alcohol spice. This body. Bland overall. This needs more body and malt character.

12 oz bottle shared with my buddy Nick. Light brown pour with a small tan head. Aroma is caramel malt with some slight roast and chocolate. Flavor pretty much identical, the caramel malt being the most prominent feature. Slightly dry finish.
