16oz can, pours brown with some reddish hues when held to a light. Nice frothy, beige head holds excellent retention and leaves all kinds of lacing on the glass. Aromas are toasted malt, chocolate malt, grassy hops. Tastes are chocolate malt, fresh hops, toasty grain, unexpected hint of pine, nice balance with a hoppy bite on the finish. Mouth-feel is thin-medium, somewhat resiny, good carbonation. This was hoppier than expected, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Nice American Brown Ale.
Serving type: can

16 ounce pint - Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a medium-toned brown body with a slim, paper thin, tan head.
Smell: Pithy, resinous top note from the hoppier elements. Muted brown sugar, nuts, ashen roast, and ineffusive chocolate powder.
Taste: Earthy, roasted nuts. Very low hint of brown sugar, even lesser hint of cocoa powder. Some ashy soot, molasses. Never much sweetness present. Resinous, citric hops with a medium-plus bitterness. Light nutty, roasty flavors, as well as some sustained, scraping resins on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied (barely), feels a little hollow. Medium carbonation.
Overall: A muddled hop-forward brown ale that, even with the addition of extra hops, still feels bland and lifeless.
Serving type: on-tap
