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!

bhensonb (11528) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 16, 2008
Bottle from Sondra. Amber color with a decent off-white head. Rich, lightly roasted, malt aroma. Medium in body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is roasty malty sweet, with a little accompanying bitter. The finish is sort of creamy sweet with a little backing bitter. Very pleasant and quaffable brown ale. Might be a good session ale.

Visited the brew pub in Bend, OR. Pours reddish brown with small white head. Slight malt, some sweetness, but otherwise seems bland and thin to me.

Poured reddish brown with minimal head and some lacings. Sweet aroma, brown sugar. Taste is sweet malts, brown sugar, toasty. Hops are a minor player but nicely bitter. Good dry finish. Overall pretty good example of the type. Will try a draft version sometime.

From a 12oz. bottle--Poured a thin brown burnished body. Some sharp malts, but surprisingly more hoppy and floral than I expected. Very enjoyable beer!
