3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the Lodge in Bend. Dark orange color with a light tan head. Semi-thick texture, frothy and creamy, with a nice roasted nut and bread crust flavor. Solid woody hop bite with a sweet malt body. Better than most brown ales, with some peat and vanilla notes.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer its release from the 12-ounce brown bottle resides in the glass a somewhat murky mahogany color with the head Bunyanesque in size, creamy in texture and a toothsome light tan in color, as it slowly erodes the lace that forms becomes a thick and clinging sheet upon the glass. Nose is nutty sweet, fresh and crisp, hints of caramel and the start sweet with a personable malt presence, the top middling in feel. Finish is delightfully acidic, and the hops abundant but not overly so, a fine drinking beer, a nice thirst quenching beer on a hot Arizona afternoon.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) Giant beige head atop clear, medium-brown body. Aroma is mild sweet, nutty, some caramel, earthy, light cinnamon. Taste is medium sweet, nutty, caramel, some roasty, faint earthy in the swallow. Light-medium body. This one is definitely all about the malts. Very good for a brown.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a murky brown color with a tiny off-white head. Malty aroma with a faint hop presence. Taste is rather watered down tasting with just a slight hit of maltyness and a faint roastyness. Thin mouthfeel and very bland, makes me want to pass on this beer next time.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a cloudy brown with very little head and no lacing.
Scent is very faint earthy almond (?) and malt.
Flavor is weak and malty without much balance, but Brown’s aren’t known for balance.
Palate is rather flat. Maybe it’s the screw-top bottle that didn’t hold in the carbonation, but there’s just not much to this.
Overall, take a huge pass on this one.

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.
