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!

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - FEB 11, 2006
A chewy mouthfeel and a very grainey appearance are my first impressions of this beer. It was also my last of the night, so my palate was really feeling stretched. A very big malt component, with some sweet and rich caramel flavors, with just a hint of nuttiness and honey. Very light roastedness, and somewhat watery towards the finish, this one starts out strong and ends kind of bland and boring. Not a beer for stamina.

BuckeyeBoy (2672) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 24, 2007
Tap at Cascade Lakes Lodge pours out brownish amber topped with a off white head. A nice malt on this one. Almost porter like.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2004
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.

jake65 (2600) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Draft at the Brewpub: Poured a medium chestnut brown color with a smaller beige head. Light lacing. Nose is roasty and malty with light hops and hints of cocoa. Tastes of caramel, toasted malt, chocolate, and toffee. Light bitters. Pretty good brown ale.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Draught at the brewhouse in Redmond. Clear brown with a creamy head. Light toasty malt in the aroma but not much. This flavor with just a touch of toasty malt and some alcohol spice. This body. Bland overall. This needs more body and malt character.

IndianaRed (2375) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 31, 2005
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.

ABUSEDGOAT (2352) - California, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Brown body, slightly darker than a Newcastle. Aroma is very nutty with notes of caramel, earth and some roast. Medium bodied. A decent brown ale.
