Bottle - Copper Bronze in colour - Malty; sweet toasty malts, light toffee. Fruity; apple. Hoppy; some grassy hops. Sweet malty fruity throughout. Drying finish. Not particularly exciting. Drinkable.

Really not that good. I love Newcastle Brown Ale so I bought a case of this but I was really disappointed!

Bottle. Pretty bland. Newcastle of all kinds taste the same. Nothing great here. Ok

(12oz bottle) Pours a clear amber body with a small white head. Aroma of biscuit, citrus, and caramel. Flavor of florals, herbs, biscuit, citrus, and caramel.

drostj (106) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle. Very little aroma - slightly grassy and woodsy. Not much to the taste really - rather weak. Slight metallic taste, some sweetness, a bit of caramel and hops. No bitterness at all - this is classed as an ESB? Disappointing.

12 oz bottle into a regular glass. A: Pours a clear copper color. The head is a one finger offwhite shade. In particular, I enjoy how creamy it looks topping this brew off. As it recedes, a semi-solid ring of lacing is left behind. S: Some caramel sweetness augments a slight ping of fruit esters. Hops are (sadly) almost imperceptible, but this isnít turribly fresh, either. It smells okay. Pretty middle of the road, though. T: The flavor to me seems a bit nuttier than what the aroma suggested. Mainly, though, itís still sodden with caramel and faint fruity esters on the opening. I can even pick up slight chocolate at times. It really dries up on the finish, with only a slight tea leaf note to break up the monotony. Not bad. M: Thereís a dry note on the back end that makes me think of Guinness. Or Bass. This creates good drinkability at the cost of gutted palate duration. Ah well, the latter doesnít really mean much considering what this is. Itís easy to drink. O: Itís alright, I guess. Come to think of it, this lived up to my expectations perfectly - by being completely average in almost all aspects. Among macros, Iíve had FAR worse.

Bottle, not poured. Malty grass aroma. Touch of caramel and some grainy after sense. Taste is malt, sweet start bit of a bitter afteraste. Easy drinking, session like. Good everyday drinker.

Bottle to pint - tea colored with a steady paper thin head. Malty aroma and a malty bready taste. Medium mouthfeel and somewhat watery.

Poured a clear medium dark copper with a tall foamy light tan head that was slightly creamy on top. The head dropped to about half an inch in a few minutes. The aroma was a mild bread/bisquit with some caramel malt. The beer had a bit of a thin texture and a light metallic taste up front. There was a hint of dryness in the taste and just a little bit of a tart finish. The best thing I can say about this beer was that it looked great in the glass. Overall it was not much to speak of. It was drinkable and ok, but nothing to write home about. When I saw it for $4.99 a six pack I said this is either no good or the store got a deal on a big purchase.

I got this beer on super sale under five bucks for a six pack at my local grocery store in Oregon. I found it very palatable and pretty tasty. If it keeps being such a good deal I will definitely include it in my summer camping beer selection.
