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!

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAR 3, 2012
12oz bottle. Rating #40. Clear, dark brown pour with a light beige head. Light sweetness, mild toasted aroma. Flavor has a bit more to it than the aroma, nutty with a bigger toasted presence and a bit of caramel in the finish, pretty tasty stuff. (2204)

reebtogi (5395) - 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 (1643) - 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.
