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 (14165) - 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.

(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.

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.

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.
