While pouring, the color is medium brown. However, once the the glass is filled, it seems a quite dark brown, and very cloudy. The trick of swirling the bottom tenth of the bottle before pouring the last out worked in this case, as large white yeasty sediments poured out. Has a very large, white, frothy head.
Aroma is quite mute. Nothing distinctive I could pick up except a normal 'beer' smell.
Flavor is also quite mute. I found this to be a pretty boring brown ale.
Mouthfeel is decent. Medium carbonation. Actually, would have been the perfect base for a better beer.
Drinkability is difficult to describe. Is one bottled water more drinkable than another?
I found this beer to be quite lacking in flavor, a completely worthless review by me (sorry!) and at a loss for words. It'll score better than other (bad) beers I've had, but only because those beers actively sucked for one reason or another. This one had nothing discernibly bad to make it repugnant. Average, average, average.
