Looks like cola. Pretty decent color. Very smooth. Nice malty start, and gradually gets more hoppy and bitter. Mild aftertaste, but still there. If you are looking for a good malty beer, this is a pretty good choice.

Pours a clear medium brown color with a thin white head. Smells of malt, a little nutty. Good carbonation and a medium mouthfeel. Taste of mild malts with some bitterness and a mild aftertaste. Beer was not too bad, but the bitterness began to grow as it warmed. Keep it cool.

Aroma is not strong: malty and a little bit like acid. Head average, slightly brown. A lot of carbonation. Brown colour with shades of red. Starts with some chocolate taste ending with a little bit bitter. Too watery for my taste, propably much better tapped.

Nutty aroma, dark brown colour with a large head. The recommendation is to pour a quarter of a pint a time in order to keep this head. The flavour is also nutty with slight hints of chocolate. A bit too thin and watery to rate higher marks but drinkable none the less.

I have never been able to understand the appeal of this beer? It has no soul, no flavor, no bitterness no nothing! It is like a Triumph Spitfire in a garage full of Morgans!!

rlgk (18837) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 4, 2004
Amber color, with a nice but quite quickly disappearing offwhite head. Aroma from hops, but also sweet with notes of toffee. Flavor brings some hops, some malts, and it turns into a bitter ans somewhat spicy finish.

This is a ver simpel beer. A little thin-bodied, but nicely flavored. A typical everydays beer.

If it's 1 a.m., I'm not at home, I don't want to goto a bar, this is the beer to get. It is very good for something that you can get at 7-11. Carmel, and toffee notes are awesome in the ale. Always a good backup.

Bottle. Newcastle Brown is one of those beers you can find everywhere. Brown in color go figure, with thin head, some lace. Nose is of nuts, maybe a bit a a molasses hint. Just a hint of sweetness around the edges. Taste is almost devoid of hops (as style), with a mellow malt base, sweet initially sliding to a thin, somewhat dry finish.
