RichardGretton (4247) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2013
Cask@The Kings Head, Lanchester, County Durham. Amber beer with a strong head. The aroma is lightly roasted, and the flavour is mildly toffee and bitter. Overall a reasonable hopped and gently roasted beer.

dynamiteninja (1511) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2012
Keg draught at the Town Hall Hotel, Richmond, Yorks. Amber body with a thin white head. Nose is caramel and black malt initially. As it warms up from very cold you get spice, hops and fruit. Lightly bitter. Arid dry finish. Oily mouthfeel, which is unpleasant. A bit heavy. Surprisingly decent, like a John Smithís on steroids.

tombyars (1362) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 13, 2012
First tasted this in Leuchars in August 1994. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Slight malt note in the short aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base gives digestive biscuit malt with sweet golden syrup notes. Hop resins give a dusty bitter aftertaste. Finish is rather weak with barley sugar notes dilute in the mouth. A rather insipid bitter.

futre7 (135) - Taipei, TAIWAN - OCT 3, 2011
Very smooth and easy to drink. Aroma was negligable , a thin head and some lacing. Bitter sweet taste with a light grain and caramel. Many below have argued it is watery and not strong enough. Iíd argue the attraction is that itís easy to drink and good for sessioning. I really enjoyed this one.

10/2/10. On tap. Extremely mild and light aroma and flavor. Really tastes like nothing. Meh.

ALLOVATE (2412) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 11, 2006
Draught, swan-neck @ a very small pub (sorry, not noted!!!), Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
Shimmering, deep tawny gold with an inch thick pad of cream that lasted but didnít lace. Void of aroma, though the Geordieís had the bar well and truly smoked out by now. Thin, watery and soft in the mouth. Bitter, burnt caramel, sweet castor sugar, light toasted grain and plastic with an almost desperate challenging note of earth and ginger. Very little bitterness on the swallow and wishy washy in the finish. This was just another nitro beer in my opinion. Just who invented them. Not much here at all.

HoosierDadday (13) - USA - JUL 14, 2004
A great ale. In terms of having unique flavor, Newcastle is second to none. The aroma and aftertaste both are very sweet and almost make one think of taffee or maple.

Shadrach (176) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2004
Clear light amber. No head to speak of. Slight amount of hops with a licorice aftertaste. Could get a hint of maple in the aroma. There's BEER and then there's beer. This is the latter.

Sigmund (5120) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2003
(Draught in Newcastle). Darker than Newcastle brown, more flavour too - but still a bit thin. Moderate head, good lacing. Drinkable, but not the best one around.

ferox (84) - Newcastle, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2003
another cheapy ale. Been a couple of years since I've had this, but from whgat I remember, it was quite wattery, with only faint hints of malt. Much better ale examples out there than this
