16oz can at fridge temp into a snifter. best before 26APR2013 stamped on the bottom.
a rather vigorous pour from the can yields a 1-2 finger light beige colored, rocky head with a nice foamy cap and very good retention. some good lacing is left behind as it drinks. chestnut brown body with just a slight haze.
citrusy, resiny hops seem to be at the forefront. not till it warms does a toasty, slightly biscuity malt come out with just a hint of nuttiness. as it warms even further, fruity esters are noticeable.
a nice balance of hops to malt. dry citrus hops with a toasty, biscuity malt back. finishes with a pretty substantial hop bitterness akin to a pale ale or maybe even some IPA's. very light roastiness noticeable under everything.
light in body with a touch of a watery feel. hop bitterness lingers on the palate.
this reminds me more of a hopped up amber ale than a brown ale, but to each his own. the extra hops are much welcomed and make this something i could see myself enjoying again. the can is always a "plus" in my book as well. one of the better brown ales out there.
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
