An ex-girlfriend turned me on to this beer. (It was the only worthwhile thing she did during the relationship)Its good out of the bottle, better out of the keg. I prefer my Black & Tans with a Newcastle bottom.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2007 What a great Beer. I drink it only on special occasions and only with my close friends but i very much enjoy this beer. The fact that it is in a clear bottle hinders it but also gives it that distinct ’Newkie B’ glow.

Beautiful beer but doesn’t taste as strong as it looks. Tastes a lot fresher from the tap.

Nice color, but very light in body. Could be an OK tasting beer except for the fact that the clear bottle has skunked the hops beyond beleif. Not very good out of the bottle. It is a much better beer on draught, but still a little light and watery for my palate.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2003 Reddish brown colour. Has a mildly yeasty aroma and notes of caramel. Malts in the flavour and some caramel/toffee. A little to waterish in the aftertaste. A pleasant over avarage beer.

A nice mild easy drinking ale.
slighly sweet nutty malt flavour accented with chocolate and caramel.
there are better browns available but this is a decent beer for a mass produced ale.

A friend of mine couldn’t stand it, he said it was vingeary. Boy he was wrong, it just tasted like a good, old fashioned beer. A little watery at first, but not too bad at all. A good change of pace.

I always enjoy a newcastle. I feel it is slightly smoother and creamier on tap, but still a very strong brown ale out of the bottle. Had this one recently in New Orleans after a ’Hurricane’ and remembered why I like beer so much better than mixed fruit drinks.
