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!

Sugary cereal aroma. Can’t get enough of that golden crisp! That and Postum. Clean hazelnut brown. Sweet and clean, more cereal, tasty beer.

This is one fine tasting beer. As a Brown Ale, it actually tastes like brown, sweet, delicious, brown.

A light chesnut coloured ale, tan head.Some nice lacing. not much of an aroma. quite a thin taste even for a brown,very sweet..then some hoppy bitterness catches me by surprise near the end. very thin and sweetish on the palate. it drinkable but boring.

From a 12oz. bottle--Poured a thin brown burnished body. Some sharp malts, but surprisingly more hoppy and floral than I expected. Very enjoyable beer!

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2005
Amber, almost brown with a frothy white head and nice lacing. Caramel and some roast. Flowery hops with some citrus. Slightly nutty. Nice tones of caramel and roast. Earthy and nutty with just a touch of bitterness. Nice palate with a malt finish.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 4, 2003
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.

Tap @ Flying Pie - Meridian: Super light color and surprised this is even called a brown ale. Sadly, even Newcastle brown is better than this. This is more like a thick dark lager. Meh.

12 oz bottle poured. Brought a six pack of this back home after a fantastic visit to their brew pub. A really interesting, yet inviting malt aroma. Very malty beer, and the flavor is very nice. Definite hop presence towards the finish. Nutty flavor as well. Very much enjoy this beer.

12 oz bottle shared with my buddy Nick. Light brown pour with a small tan head. Aroma is caramel malt with some slight roast and chocolate. Flavor pretty much identical, the caramel malt being the most prominent feature. Slightly dry finish.
