The best. Period. Taste, looks and everything. I'm not able to be objective when it comes to Newcastle Brown Ale. If it was a woman...

I had this the other night and had forgotten how bad it is. When all i drank was garbage beer i thought newcastle was really good. Since i made the switch going back to this was rough. Its almost too watery to taste the metallic yukness, but not quite. Doesnt taste anything like brown ale. Essentially tastes like boddingtons... Poop

A good macro produced beer. This beer has a nice dark red amber color to it with a perfect level of carbonation and foam head. From the aroma to the taste this beverage is is very balanced. Newcastle’s brown ale is a safe drink to enjoy. It is not bland, not real bitter, and it has a kind finishing taste. Overall I enjoyed this but its not my preferred kind of brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light brown, clear with a decent head of loose white foam that fell pretty quick to a ring and film on top. Light little ruby blush. Nose is shy. Light sweet grain and a fruitiness. Bit of grass and toasted grain. Tatse is earhty with a light sweetness and a very light mouthfeel. Sweet grain that’s drying in the middle. A little buttery and a bit of fruity flavor. The malt is very light and not as smooth and rich as some other browns. Little bit of hop bitter to finish it. The mouhtfeel is a bit slick and it’s crisp with a bit of refreshment. There is a slight metallic bit underneath as it warms but by the time you finish your pint that is a vague memory. Really very good and while ti is not rich or expansive in it’s malt it is very easy to drink and extremely sessionable..

Lots of flavour and nose, but it is less than elegant in its execution. You can see why Newcastle River water is infamous.

Bottle, 355 ml. First time I’ve tried it I thought it was pretty good. I’ve tried it couple of years after that and was disappointed. Pours brown, malty aroma and watery flavor.

Aroma: Raisin, orchard fruit, biscuit and syrup.
Taste: Low/medium sweetness, low bitter and sourness.
Palate: Thick smooth texture, light body, average carbonation, abrupt raisin malty finish.
Comments: Tasty and a slight glass lace. No real depth to the finish, lacking in some way..

500ml bottle at home. Pours clear reddish brown, no real head to speak of. Metallic aromas, light caramel. Slightly nutty taste, toffee sugars. Clean finish. Not very interesting, but drinkable enough.
