Let me start by saying that Newcastle is my old standby if I don't see anything else I want to drink. It doesn't jump out at you in anyone category except for maybe appearance. However it is a smooth, slightly flavorful, moderatley sweet, easy drinking brown ale. It probably will never rate above average on ratebeer.com, but if I had to buy a beer that a large group of people (beer drinkers and non-beer drinkers) would enjoy this would be it.

Bottle. Nice brown ale, with a subtle malty flavour. This is slightly sweet, with the refreshing properties of standard lager. This is a staple of UK pub life, and is OK, without ever being complex or tasty enough to be outstanding.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2004 One of my favorites. Sweet, flavorful, yet easy to drink. A beautiful brown malty ale. Delicious!

I find this to be a great malty masterpiece of a brown ale. Somewhat sweet at the 2nd or 3rd sip, but never too sweet. The color is a nice deep amber with a good mellow alcohol taste. I have never let it stay in the glass long enough to see how the head lasts... of course this is common. Good stuff!

Nice deep amber beer. Very malty with a sweetish caramel aftertaste. Not a quaffer beer but a nice winter/cold weather ale

eraserhd10 (226) - new haven, Connecticut, USA - DEC 10, 2003
Draught. Standard fare. Unimpressive head and aroma. Color is deep brown with a tinge of red. Taste is straightforward. Malty, nutty, hints of caramel and oak. Not a bad safety beer.

haddon90 (1634) - Newport Beach, California, USA - DEC 10, 2003
Tap at Union Jack's in Knoxville, TN. Deep brown pour with a little tan head. Roasted malty aroma, could improve a little. Watery taste. Not great but not bad. But I'm not the biggest fan of Brown Ales.

Decent overall for a brown ale. Brown color. Easy down and available everywhere.
