2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Reddish copper,clear short head,a bit more carbonation than usual,some lacing
Aroma is malt light carmel,somewhat nutty with very slight sweet fruit.
First off the idea of this beer sounded good,then after pouring it I knew it was going to have the same newcastle taste. I was right and almost could just predict the flavor.This kind of remindes me of a leinekugals nut brown.There is a diety cola clovish taste to this and that note is pretty big overall otherwise its light smooth with slight nut,carmel,with a little sweetness and a crappy clovish bitter.Terrible finish,kind of harsh and repulsive. Im glad I only grabbed one for a mixed sixer,because I kinda wouldnt care if I ever had it again.

12oz bottle pours copper with a nice khaki head. Aromas of some light bread grain and cereal malt. Flavor is light and semi sweet. Body is light and finish is a bit bready

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2012 Bottle as shown. Pours a clear amber with a small beige head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is raisin malt and berry. Thin mouthfeel with sweet malt and caramel. Easy to drink a good ESB from Newcastle.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle; more like a dark auburn than a blood red, but a nice looking beer at that. Aroma of sweet tarts, fruit, and flowers. Flavor had a fruity and caramel balance, with a finish of candy. Not really a beastly beer, but decent enough flavor.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
This is an ok beer. Pours a brown/reddish color and leaves white head. Had a malt caramel taste that i thought was watered down and nothing special. I probably would not buy it again but would drink it if it was given to me.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Werewolf pours a clear rich red brown with a thick head of white foam. Nose is mild malt with no real hop aroma. Taste is dry malt finishing with a hint of bitters. Body is mildly fizzy. Rather watery. Kinda disappointing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is my favorite of the seasonal Newcastles that I have had thus far. Although it drinks more like a dark lager than an Bitter. Pours a deep copper with a white head. Decent malt character on the nose. Palate has a nice malt presence with some hop character as well. Not too shabby.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
#300, whatup? 12oz bottle. Dark copper/brown aroma. Head fades off, no lacing. Nutty taste, as you’d expect, but a bit more "burnt". Not quite a true session beer, but a unique and "natural" fall seasonal, worth a try.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2012 Draft. Had twice now and nowhere meets the description of most reviews. Apparently there are two different versions (or maybe it has to do with the lunar cycle.) I have so far only found the dark orange brown one. No red here at all (though still reminiscent of an Irish Red.) Tastes like a mix of a Smithwicks and a Yards Brawler, though not as good as either. Medium mild malty beverage with a very slight pepper bite. Full in flavor though reads a bit watery. Dark toasted wheat notes. Caramel malt. Interesting but the flavors are too blunt.
