Not a bad brown ale but not a great one either. Has a light watered down taste for an ale but not bad for a person whom is new to beers. Pale brown with a small head that fades fast. Decent aroma.

Bottle served super cold. Pours nut brown with a thin white head and grainy aroma. Notes of caramel, malt, toast, prune and chocolate are noticeable. The overall body of the beer is thin with a low hop bitterness but it is lively leaving a trail of lacing along the side of the glass. Overall a great session ale that is very well balanced and enjoyable to drink even if it is a bit generic.

Pours a light brown colour with a slightly off white lasting head. Aroma is quite sweet, not prominant, pleasant. Smooth taste, not strong or overpowering. I pick up lightly toated bread and a sweet finish. overall not bad but a little uninteresting

500ml can, pours clear brown with a very small beige head. Faint aroma of caramel. Taste is sweet. It is very similar in taste to the Russian-brewed Kozel Cerny.

Just had my first one. Like the dark brown appearance, has a pleasant taste but not the best I ever tasted, good on the palate, good after taste. Will drink it again if someone offered me a bottle.

Bottle. Pours brown color, medium size, light yellow head. Chocolate and nuts in nose. Flavor of chocolate, toast, caramel, nuts and oranges. Thin body. On sweet side. So-so beer. Missing some fulness abd bitterness for british style.

Paul Harvey once said "best of the lousiest, lousiest of the best" and I think that sums up Newcastle. For a mass produced beer it’s pretty good. There are a few other mass produced beers I like better but these always are pretty easy to drink and taste good. Nothing great but no off pudding favors. If I want a brown ale there are much better choices but I have no problem drinking this if the situation arises.

Bottle@ De Tolly Joogipood. Pours brown color with small head. Aroma of typical macro lager+ some hops, weak smoke. Taste is better than aroma, some burnt caramel, malty, watery. Not bad, but not good either.
