As a fan of belgium and german beers and certainly a fan of irish/english beers, this blood ale is excellent. Great aroma, sweet scent. Appearance is dark red, very appealing and fitting to the name. Taste is great, I love the new castle ale too. Fruity, small bite, great finish. Carbonation is not flat, but just right for me.

A rather cheap seasonal from Newcastle with caramel notes that sometimes get in the way, reminiscent of their better known brown. Deserves a higher rating than what some other users provide, though it will not satisfy any serious beer drinker.

Superb foam that will last a while. Lovely inviting aroma of dark toffee. The flavor is malt characterized by dark caramel, roasted malt, a little hazelnut and candied. Oatmeal, I do not have the big expertise, but the taste of a little bread must be due to oatmeal. It just contributes to a little more distinctive and aggressive malt flavor that makes this ale to taste something richer than the 4.5% alcohol else had put in expectation. Hop bitterness is moderate and restrained, just such as an ESB should be. The finish is medium dry and very low carbonation is completely in line with how the British ales should be.

A rather odd one that goes from an odd oatmeal stout to caramel. It swings from bitter to sweet in a form that feels very imbalnced.
