Always a good reliable beer you can go back to. Like some ambers (at least for me) you can’t drink more than a few before it gets old.

Right before I started trying to taste beer ’seriously’ in the past year, I would drink this. And it was good. Now it isn’t, as I’ve changed, but the beer hasn’t. Not enough of anything to please, or necessarily displease, but should be substantially maltier. Good ’graduating’ beer.

With so many good beers around, you won’t ever find me picking up a 6-pack of Newcastle. That being said, there’s nothing wrong with it. It’s a simple brown ale, with medium body and mild maltiness.

In the U.K this is a good beer. In the U.S. it’s usually really bad. If the sun or heat get to this beer it will skunk in a matter of hours or even minutes. I completely disagree with the ’shelf life’ comment in the COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION. This is probably in the reasoning for putting that comment in there. Hope you had agood one!

Great color, somewhat thin but distinctively smokey flavor and I thought it had a better head than seems to be the general consensus here. I was worried about the clear bottle leading to skunk city but that wasn’t the case at all.

I have to go against the popular vote here, and say I actually love Newcastle. I think of all the brown ales out there, this is still probably my favorite, even if it mass produced.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nut brown, smallish head. Rather sweet, somewhat nutty, medium bodied, rather low bittterness. Not very complex, but for a massproduced beer it is not bad.
