3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle pours a brownish rust color, small off-white dishwater like head, very light carbonation, with decent lacing.   Malty/Nutty aroma.   WOW!   Flavor is all about the malts.   This one is smooth, a lot like an english style Brown Ale.   Slightly roasty, but all malt.   This is very nice... mad props to the fellas over at Cascade Lakes for doing a wonderful Brown Ale.   Body and mouthfeel are up to par, at least my par.   I will sum this one up as being smooth.

very thin and sweetish on the palate.
it drinkable but boring.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A brown body with an off white head. The aroma is hoppy with some malts. There is maly in the flavor with a bitterness from the hops that lingers. An unusual brown in my opinion and definite void of the nut or chocolate malt in the description.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had a mild hop aroma, probably from the centennial. Color was a dark clear brown. Taste was mediocre and not too complex. Fades into an unruly hoppy bitterness in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium brown color. Small head. Aroma is nutty and fruity. A medium bodied brown ale. Malts are nutty and caramel, with a slight hint of chocolate. Hops are spicy and a touch floral. A touch harsh and a little too crisp for a brown ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter
