Newcastle has become a long standing staple on my list of favorites for about 2 years now. It is a good everyday beer for me now, and I enjoy it ice cold with a fine steak. For an English Brown ale that wont over power the senses but still leaves you with a great taste, Newcastle is the one for you.

This one was recommended to me at a bar, and afterwards I just got up and left. The smell wasnít pleasant, but it wasnít unpleasant either. When it was ice cold, this ale reminded me of a thinner, weaker Guiness, but after a bit the bitterness and sweet malty taste took over. It was all I could do to finish one bottle. Like the other members here say, you either like it or you hate it. I donít hate it, but I sure wonít buy it again.

I like it a lot, but some of the other members of the club think it tastes like cough syrup. I guess you either like it, or hate it.

Very nice ale. Easy to drink. Perhaps the taste is almost too balanced, lacking some character.

OK I have to agree with a lot of people here. This beer smelled horrid, and I waited to see if it would get better, as suggested, and it didnít. It didnít taste as bad as it smelled, but that isnít saying much. It did have a sweeter tinge than a lot of others, though. I am not sure what causes it, because it didnít have a honey flavor. I bought a single for $2.50 and didnít even finish it. I would much rather have a few cheaper ales. Even a nice Guinness (can) is only $1.75 around here. I will not buy this one again, even if it is all there is. Sorry.

Nice fluffy head, tastes about the same way it smells, which is pleasant, and has a low key bittersweet finish that gently lingers. Not great, but pretty darned good.

In my opinion, this is the 2nd best beer on Earth, after Bass Ale. Great color, with a nice malty, fruity finish. Medium body, great floral hop (Fuggles?) aroma. Slightly better on tap and served at about 50 degrees.
