Bottle. This isn't a very good beer, full of nasty additives that make it overly sweet and syrupy. But ...... growing up in the late 90s learning about beer, this was foreign, therefore good in the barren australian landscape so it holds a special place in my heart.

Durchschnittliches Ale, feine Kohlensšure, schwache RŲstaromen, leicht brotig. Gut trinkbar aber nichts auŖergewŲhnliches.

A decent cream/malt taste. Rather thin with heavy carbonation. Not excellent, but good if there isnít much else on the menu.

Iíve had this several times in both draft and bottle formats. It is thin, mediocre and usually over-carbonated. Quite the terrible example of a brown ale if you ask me. Or anyone for that matter.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml, flaske, 4,7 %, købt i Netto på Roskildevej i Valby, 8. oktober 2013.
Klar mahogni-farvet Brown Ale med flygtigt offwhite skum på 1/2 cm.
Svag, ikke så kendetegnende aroma af brændt malt.
Smagspaletten indledes let syrligt og går glat over i let bitterhed med en anelse sødme. Førsteindtrykket er, at vi her har at gøre med en let Brown Ale med rimelig smag, men smagen opleves mere rund og fyldig jo mere tempereret øllet bliver. Let drikkelig Brown Ale.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark orange to amber clear body with a small lasting head. Nose has caramel, hay and dark malts. Taste is mildly bitter with a short mild and dry finish. Carbonation is average. Decent but nothing spectacular.

IBU 24. Nothing I live better than a Newcastle brown in a frosty mug at the end of a long day. It's not a hoppy beer. It's not a syrup-like stout either. It's not an overly strong beer either. What it is is a smooth flavorful beer that is perfect to unwind with before heading to bed.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
About $4 for a single bottle at a bar that didnít have anything to offer that I was particularly interested in.
Appearance: Comes in a clear bottle... bad start. Pours decently, but still nothing special. A decent head lingers, but thereís no lacing (that I noticed). Very ordinary.
Smell: Eh... watered down... could smell a lot better. Dusty sorts of roasted malts give that roasty/coffee aroma, but it doesnít smell particularly good. The quality just isnít there.
Taste: Itís just OKAY. My dad said that in the í70s he used to drink this a lot and it tasted a lot better (citing that they probably changed the recipe, and that the beer was in brown bottles). Itís light like it ought to be given the ABV, but it just doesnít taste very good. Itís not bad thanks to the fact that thereís nothing off-putting and that itís not super sweet, but itís pretty mediocre.

On tap in Cupertino. Not the finest beer Iíve tasted, but considerably better than the bottled variety Iíve had in the UK.

Thin and watery. Very little creamy malt taste like i would expect from a brown ale. Taste almost similar to Budweiser. I really donít like this beer.
