Smells liek burger meat. The flavor is about at light and sweet as a beer gets. I donít know what they do to get it like that but it is like soda.

Bottle. Pours clear red with an aggressive head, decent lacing, overall this is a good looking brew. The aroma is not great.. some biscuit, bread, but lacking a real distinguishing character. The taste is a little on the sweet side with a bit of the rye malt in the finish, This is reasonable considering itís from Newcastle and should be easily available anywhere; however, many ESBs are better.

Poured into a tasting glass
Reddish color with minimal head that quickly left. Decent beer that tasted very similar to Newcastle but with some other slight flavors added in. Fruity/rye smell and taste.

Reddish-brown, highly carbonated, but diffuse head. Nutty nose, moving toward hazelnut, and ensconced by berry fruit. Berry and nut flavors abound in the body. Body is thinnish.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a fairly light clear brown color with an off white head. Aroma is pretty nutty with some caramel and rye. Taste is pretty smooth with a good amount of rye flavor and caramel. Kinda dry with some balance issues I think. Some biscuit and earthy flavors in the finish with a touch of hops. Overall not bad.
