3/5 rDev -16.2%
Poured from a 12 ounce can into a shaker pint. A moderate pour results in a 3/4 inch frothy, off-white head that shrinks quickly, but does stick around for a little while. The beer is a fairly dark brown with perhaps a bit of murk.
Biscuity malts on the nose and palate. A load of butteriness and a little bit of astringency subtract a bit from the flavor. Despite the style, a little more of a hop character would be welcome- something to balance out all that biscuit. The mouthfeel is dense, oily, perhaps a little creamy. Rather bland overall and average, at best.
I'm not seeing too many brown ales on the shelves these days (I'm missing Sierra Nevada's Tumbler). Browns don't have to be this bland.

12oz can that was a little bit dented and weathered, purchased at Huckleberry's in Spokane for $1.59. No freshness date.
Poured a cola-ish color that took on a reddish hue when held up to light. There was a half-inch of off-white foam for a head, but it quickly fell, leaving some "beer neglige" style lace on the sides of my glass.
The smell was of roasted malts with traces of some grassy hop aroma.
The flavor was of roasted malts, with a little bit of coffee and mollasses. As it warmed, there a mild, nutty taste became discernible. The swallow was surprisingly dry for the style.
Medium bodied, with a coating, prickly mouthfeel.
An decent brown ale. Not bad, but not terribly compelling, either.
