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

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.

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.

Nutty, fruity esters in the nose. Looks like a brown ale. Quite a watery flavour and not much mouthfeel. Not much else to say really, dissapointing.

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.

2.4
Choos (754) - 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.
