Not at all what I was expecting. A lot of people I know told me that it was "good". It tastes watered down..Itís a disapointment

Drank from a bottle. Not that special. The taste is a bit bland. The colour is nice brown.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I never really cared too much for Newcastle. Now that Iíve been drinking brown ales lately to compare, I have to downgrade this brew somewhat. Although it is drinkable, it just doesnít do much for me. Perhaps I donít care for Scottish Brown Ales versus American Brown or Indian Brown, etc. The balance between bitter and sweet just isnít there, as it seems a bit overly bitter....but I think that is just the style, as Oskar Blues Old Chub seemed the same, but a bit better overall. Iíve also noticed that metallic aftertaste. There are better ones out there for the price.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Straight from the bottle. Clear amber/brown color with an off white head. Sweet malt and very slight bitterness aroma. Bittersweet malt, caramel and faint hop flavors. Iíll give it one thing, itís very easy to drink unlike some other shitty brews like Bud, Miller or Coors (not to mention all the other crap Mex beers).

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cerveja acobreada e âmbar, com espuma muito rala e marrom; a cor é viva e convidativa. O aroma é extremamente agradável, com toque de frutas vermelhas silvestres e primaveril. O sabor é muito bem equilibrado, sem destaques óbvios, com álcool presente, porém pouco perceptível e aftertaste agradabilíssimo; refrescante e suave. Aquilo que o aroma promete é cumprido, com o leve toque frutado e uma cerveja muito refrescante. Acredito que vá bem com alimentos leves e em dias de calor. Resumindo, uma inglesa que não chega a ser uma porter devido à leveza, ótima para o dia a dia e para ser tomada em boa quantidade. Só peca pela falta de aveludamento do pálato.

Aroma- Has a strong malt flavor but smelled stale

Taste- Heavy malt flavor with some caramel but it tastes old
Palate- Medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation.
Overall- a truly average beer, pretty forgettable.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours deep, dark amber. A little bit roast and chocolate, a kind of a sweetish bitterness, so neither taste dominates over another too much. Easy and smooth to drink, even if itís not exactly exciting.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from de Albert Heijn. The beer is amber colored and has an unstable cream colored head, with average carbonation. The aroma is earthy, sweet from the caramel and some hints of roasted malts are noticable. The taste is smooth and complex, with hints of coffee and grains, to change into a light and sharp bitterness from the malts. The finish is sharp, watery and short. Nothing special, little watery taste but well drinkable.
