2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Newcastle pours a ruddy brown, quite clear, with a bit of creamy tan head. The nose is fairly malty, with notes of caramel and toast. There is a prominent cooked corn sweetness to the aroma, indicating dimethyl sulfide(DMS). Some consider this an integral part of the character of certain beers, but I’d call it a flaw.
The flavor is strongly corny, with a bit of malt in the background and prominent sweetness. There is just a hint of dark malt character coming off as a bit of roastiness. The palate is smooth and creamy, almost satiny.

Newcastle Brown Ale: ok- (Gal liked it better then I did)
Bottle, 330ml. Pours clear, dark brown. Tall, dense and foamy, beige colored head. Mild aroma of malt and dry fruits with roasted notes. Mouth feel is watery with medium-gentle carbonation. Weak tanginess. Taste is bitter-forward, with a weak balancing background sweetness. Strong flavors of bitter hops and malt. Some noticeable bitter roasted notes, bitter-sweet caramel and burnt sugar. Also some fruits/dry fruits flavors and weak notes of coffee. Somewhat watery. Bitter aftertaste.
Nicely bitter, strongly roasted, with a precise, very gentle background sweetness. Slightly flat and somewhat boring in terms of flavor, not much of flavor development. Easy to drink, and yet slightly heavy and warming, fits a colder weather. This is not a beer to drink slowly, but rather more of an everyday drink.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Color marrón castaño, cobrizo, con una carbonatación media. El olor es dulce, de intensidad media, una mezcla de malta tostada y caramelo con suaves frutos secos, cuerpo ligero, con un sabor dominado por el grano tostado, algo acaramelado, con recuerdos de cacao y nueces, para al final aparecer un amargor medio que deriva en un final algo seco.

Browish clear amber with white head. Aroma is a little skunky. Light taste and feel. Not as good as I remembered from my first experience 7-8 years ago.

New to beer drinking, but i really like this one. Have tried better but like the availability of this for an afterwork at home kind of beer. Nice brown color. Mild sweetness. Good feel in the mouth not too thin.
