3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle poured into an English pint at 42°. Color is a deep amber that leans to the brown. Carbonation is good with a small off white head. Aroma is a nice roasted malt scent with just a hint of hops. It has a lighter medium body that gives a smooth mouth feel with a slight fizzy feel on the end. Flavor comes in sweet and roasted then a touch of hops give a mild bitterness and just a hint of citrus. After taste is dry as the bitterness comes out a little more. Overall its a good brew, like a robust Amber crossed with an ESB.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a light clear amber (not blood red) with a small off-white head. Strange aroma of moldy, sour grain. Taste is a bit better, with sweet fruit, grain, and malt. Just nothing positive to say.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz bottle. Pours clear brownish-orange (definitely not "blood red") with a medium beige head with good retention and lace. Aroma consists of stinky grain, overripe dark fruit, caramel. Taste starts out sweet before a light bitterness sets in. Watery and bland. Creamy mouthfeel and average carbonation. This werewolf should be extinct! I’m sure it will be by year’s end.

This is a decent beer, though it might just be too bitter for most people. I enjoyed it, but I think I prefer Newcastle Brown Ale still.

This is the best beer I’ve had by Newcastle. A totally decent rye malted blood red bitter ale, with a nice mellowness throughout. Nothing hoptacular here, just a balanced little bitter with a pretty color.
