Smooth and decent taste but limited mouthfeel and not quite the taste for me.

This beer has a brown body - hue with a no initial flavor and a light body.

30/3 draught: Sweet caramel aroma. Short lasting bubbly head, clear amber-brown liquid. Good lacing on glass. Sweet caramel flavour with a hint of bitter. Not well balanced, bit too sweet. Smooth body, though thin.

I just think it is a bit too watery, otherwise it is ok and the aftertaste is not that bad.

Beautiful coppery body with medium-sized, mostly disipating head. Mild caramel nutty flavor with low hop bitterness. Decent brown, but too mild.

I really enjoy drinking this beer. Has a sweet chocolate/caramel taste and goes down extremely smooth.

Why is it that every time I drink a Newcastle, I feel like I'm eating a Heath candy bar? I like the taste, but it's almost too sweet. It goes down easy and is enjoyable, but Bells Best Brown is much better.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Deep amber colour, no trace of head. Caramel and nuts in the aroma. The flavour is too mild, with some sweet notes (caramel) and a little sourness. Weak nut finish. It seemed very watery to me. Not a terrible beer, but simply it has no character.

Bottle. Clear copper color with a moderate light tan head. Heavy caramel aroma with a hint of hops and english ale yeast. Quite fizzy. Caramel and floral hops flavors with a somewhat biting acidity. Bitterness only comes out in the finish. Nothing extrordinary, but a very drinkable brown ale.
