2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Ahh newcastle... one of the steps on my way down into the depths of craft beer.
Comes in a clear bottle which is weird but I don’t really believe in the colored bottle thing. You know, because of the quantum chemistry and such.
A: Smells unique... very metallicy. sort of clean, like soap.
A: Looks decent in the glass. Nice bubbly white head. Color is darker than I thought being a crystal clear light redish brown.
T: A hint of malt and then... well... nothing. So much nothing that it is rather remarkable.
P: Super watery and carbonation is a little agressive but not bad.
For the style this is a huge miss, but for a macro it’s actually not bad. I think the goal of any macro is to taste like nothing and this beer does that much better than any american beer. A hint of malt really makes this a solid contender for best cheap beer.

Pours a clear brown color. Very plain Brown Ale. Nevertheless enjoyable enough.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at home. Medium to dark brown with nice off white head. Light caramel, brown bread, light grass and citrus. Light herbal bitter finish. Medium bodied. Very light aroma, there’s really nothing interesting here but it’s very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brown body and clean head. Very classic aroma, but not in the good sense I’m afraid. Grainy and simplistic, mass produced appeal. Taste is better, very drinkable and not without bitterness.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s. I don’t mind a brown ale, even a mass produced one. Unfortunately this one has a metallic bubble gum sort of sweet taste that I find nauseating. Oh well!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Brown & reddish color with small unsteady head. Aroma is very thin, malty, with light notes of caramel. Taste is light sweet, malty. Watery texture. Very drinkable. Finish is short. Fine, but expected more.

Fin nok - et godt alternativ til en pilsner. Meget flot når den er hældt op i glasset. Sød smag...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Amber Brown, no head; Woody spice aroma with some raisin fruitiness; Light bodied and smooth; More sultanas on the palate, gingerbread also. In short, not the most flavourful beer ever, but very drinkable.
