No big surprises or strong flavors, just a decent tasting but underpowered ale.

I know it’s not going to be anything spectacular but every now and then I like to revisit mainstream beers to see how my tastes have developed over the years.
Pours a reddish brown with a surprisingly decent off white head that leaves moderate lacing on the glass. Aroma is very skunky. Never gotten that from a brown ale before. Kind of off-putting. Taste is almost non-existence. There is a little skunk and if you really look for it a mild malty sweetness, otherwise it’s not much more flavorful than a glass of carbonated water. Not bad if you just want to drink a bunch of beers at a sporting event or something I guess. Other than that, I would not see myself purchasing this again.

Nice brown color, small white head. Light sweet malt aroma, smooth taste, no after taste. Nice beer.

Classic brown ale, bottled. No longer a novelty so of course the ratings are low. This is a tasty brown ale. Pours clear and dark brown. A little malty yet still good when cold. When nothing else is available at my local store. This one always is.

Malty smell, taste of malt and a little roastyness. Simple but safe. Nice head and lacing.

Bottle, poured into tulip glass. Looks awesome, red-shot chestnut colour, thick off white head. Aroma is sweet, nutty, touch of licorice. Taste is similar. Watery. Not very complex, but very drinkable.

Newcastle is my favorite average brown ale that you can get anywhere. It is nice and standard.

Love the taste and aroma of this beer. The dark red/amber coloring of the beer goes pretty well with the bottle design and colors making it very classy. The feel of the beer is amazing, very smooth and refreshing, no bad after taste. Its coffee like taste is great and carbonation very refreshing

500ml can. Clear reddish brown with a thin off-white head. Sweet malts and corn aroma. Taste is caramel, cardboard with some nutty and sour notes. Watery. One of my gateway beers.
