2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2012 Rerate- rubbery and pretty thin. Canít believe i rated this highly before. Prev 3.3 - THE beer of the NE of England. Always served too cold as per the suggestion on the label. Shame, because the chill disguises the nutty taste. And, served (almost) by the imperial pint.

iíve only had this beer on draught, and I must say, I really like it. It is a bit light, but goes real well with a meal because of that.

This beer is insipid, why do people enjoy this so much.

Iíve tried this twice, and been disappointed both times. Perhaps itís the clear glass that skunks it, or comparison to much fresher brown ales from closer to home, but the high ratings I see here mystify me. Maybe Iíve gotten hold of some old, light exposed ones. Iíd like to try it again under favorable circumstances, but I wonít buy it in a store again.

A acquired, nutty taste. I used to think it was great but since then have discovered worthier ales.

A nice light slightly malty tasting brew. A soft nutty flavor is apparent and the hops are subdued. A nice drinking beer for sessions.

You can definately taste the barley in this beer. An excellent ale for good times with excellent sompanionship, Newcastle is slightly infused with a grain-taste. Hops do not make this beer special; instead its full bodied yet remarkably smooth finish seem to impart a nutty flavor that I find hard to duplicate. A beautiful reddish gold tinge makes this beer appealing to look at. Excellent from the tap or by the bottle. An excellent Scottish ale, One of my favorites!!!
