How did this beer get exported out of England? An example of if you charge a lot for something, people will think they’re drinking something good. Very medicinal flavors due to the overall age of the beer and the clear bottles that allow for photo-oxidative rancidity of the hop components. Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2004 Much like what happened with Guinness when I started trying other stouts of the world, I have moved on from Newcastle, although maybe not as much. I still do enjoy it now and then when I pick up some bottles from the lcbo, but as I have tried other English ales, I do realize there is more than this. Still has the slight toffee like flavours and decent brown appearance, but body is thin and watery with no aroma to speak of. AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 28, 2004
Nice nutty toffee flavor. Always low carbonation/borderline flat. Sweet flavor and easy to drink. ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2004
A good beer with a nutty and toffee flavor. The only thing I dont like about this beer, is the small bottles... becksgenius (110) - Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2004

Overall, a nice beer. A little thin-bodied, but nicely flavored. The aftertaste is quite complex and interesting. Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2004
Bottle. Oxidised and metallic aroma. Nutty and toffee flavours. Thin but good carbonation level. Garrat (1347) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2005 A nice colour,and that’s it,bottom of the browns,sweet and sickly. BelgianGirl (89) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JAN 18, 2004
Nice, brown color with slight head. Mild malt flavor. Simple to drink, but nothing phenomenal. I like this beer when there aren't any microbrews available. tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2004
Nice strong malty, burnt toffee nose. Clear brown with a glimpse of white head that disappears quickly. Nice simple flavour balanced towards malt. Palate a wee bit thin with nice low carbonation. Never had a skunky one despite the clear bottle. Bottle (clear).
