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!

Aroma is nice and rich. Color seems spot on, taste is good but nothing out of the ordinary. Middle of the road brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(tap) clear, bright amber colour with a small, white head; aroma of stewed fruit; balanced flavour with a long, light bitter finish; unexciting

A brown body with an off white head. The aroma is hoppy with some malts. There is maly in the flavor with a bitterness from the hops that lingers. An unusual brown in my opinion and definite void of the nut or chocolate malt in the deScription.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2004
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.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 27, 2009
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.

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.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle, thanks to Craig. Very light color with a thin head. Flavor of coffee and roasted malts. Very thin, watery beer.

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.

Visited the brew pub in Bend, OR. Pours reddish brown with small white head. Slight malt, some sweetness, but otherwise seems bland and thin to me.
