Pedestrian medium-bodied nickel-hued seasonal (?) brown ale seems conflicted. Barley cereal toasting picks up likable tea-like component and slim cherry-berry fruiting, but earthen nuttiness and clove-spiced herbal tinge fail to integrate. Dismal chocolate malting and phenol hop bittering wilt. Honey-roasted fig, pecan, and chestnut illusions slip by tangy orange lilt. Never cuts to the chase.
