You're right, it looks cracking in a pint glass! Well done!
I know you mean about mid brown beers going bland, this brew has faded a bit on the flavour front. I have found that keg beers seem to lose flavour quicker than bottled ones.
This is still a nice beer, and is just a bit more like a stronger ordinary bitter now.
I will brew something similar again, but will add some amber or brown malt as I find this gives a bit more character, and I will up the hops slightly as well.
