Though it doesn't stand out in any perticular area, this is one of my favorite session beers. Sometimes great, sometimes mediocre at best, "Newkie" is my go-to beer

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Pours light brown with little head. A malty aroma. Very watery mouthfeel. Bland flavor, a little sweet, alittle nut with almost no hop in the finish. Very little aftertaste. Very overrated.

Choos (734) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - DEC 5, 2003
Draught: Small amount of malt aroma. Clear brown appearance with fast diminishing head. Flavour was miniscule malt giving way to soda water. I didn't find any charm in this.

I've only had the bottle, but it seems a little uneven, as in sometimes it is good and sometimes not. It always seems to have a short lasting head, and is very thin in the mouth feel. Has this cidery flavor that I just don't care for. Not a bad beer, but I fail to see why so many people like it.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2005 Blah. Fairly boring. Really nutty flavor. I had it out of a bottle at a bar one night. I did not go back for a second one...

mushi (18) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - DEC 1, 2003
Draft. Decent beer, but I thought it lacked body. The aroma is hoppy with a hint of some other dark beerish flavors. Tastes a bit watered down to me, sorta the way Guiness tastes watered down to me in terms of stouts. Probably wouldn't order it again.

bbrock81 (317) - Le Mars, Iowa, USA - NOV 30, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2008 A very light tasting beer for the style, unoffensive but relatively uninteresting. Eminently drinkable in large quantities.

A reddish brown color with a small head. smells fresh and clean. good smooth yet sharp taste and it is not a filling beer.

SavMan (10) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 20, 2003
Bottle. Took trying with a few bottles to finally get a head off the pour. Has a nice toasted flavor, slightly sweet. Mouth feel was sedate. Finish was smooth with very little bitterness. This is the first ale I ever enjoyed.

jercraigs (10060) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2003
Can. Pours a dark red-brown, not much head. Flavour is slightly sweet, rough nutty malt. Have had it on tap and enjoyed it much more than this.
