Smallprint (74) - - SEP 25, 2012
On Cask at The Greyhound, Newcastle Under Lyme. A clear, brown beer with a tan head. Not much to the smell, just a slight malty smell, nothing unpleasant though. Not much to the taste at first either, but after a couple of sips, a pleasant nutiness came through, backed plenty of malts and some slight hop notes. A slightly hoppy finish, very nice, very drinkable beer.

Martin243 (800) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2012
Pint on cask at Big Lamp Brewery Tap, Newburn. I’m not a big brown ale fan, and had to be persuaded by beer buddy Mal: fortunately, I’m easily persuaded. Dark brown with an enduring tan head. Fruit and chocolate aroma, malt loaf and sweet vegetables in the flavour : I remembered that my mam used to put grated carrot in her fruit cakes for flavour and moistness, and I also got a hint of courgette. Full bodied, smooth and creamy. I wonder if the relatively high ABV makes this more of an Old Ale than a Brown Ale? Just a thought.

On cask at Big Lamp Brewery Tap, Newburn. A traditional brown ale brewed in Newcastle! Very easy to drink for this style of beer.

scotty (1060) - SCOTLAND - NOV 17, 2010
Cask in Keel Row, Newcastle. Fairly deep brown in colour, head was quite thin, but lasted to the bottom of the glass. Medium to full in body, plenty of malty/toffee flavours, these were to the fore rather than any bitterness. Very smooth and satisfying, had it with a burger, went well with that!! Much better than I expected as I’ve been to this pub before and had my doubts re the beer quality!

Bullit (4030) - Burgos, SPAIN - DEC 6, 2009
Cask @ 3 Judges. Brown colour, tan head. Aroma has some roasted malts. Flavour: roasted malts, coffee, hint of chocolate. Aroma doesn’t give it away, but this one is actually very nice, very drinkable.
