Sampled draught at Cascade Lakes Lodge, Bend
Mahogany color with a well built head. Nose of light roast, heavy caramel & a well balanced hop nose. The flavor has a nice hop hit along with the sweet malts. Well balanced brown. Fair.

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

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.

On Tap at Cascade Lakes Lodge Clear light brown rather pale for the style I thought. Very light tan head that had good lasting power and verg nice clingy lacing. Rather bland light roastd flavors with something that seemed a little off. A bit acidic or sour. Easy on the hops per the style and a nice rather heavy feel.
