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. sethatuml (38) - USA - DEC 4, 2003
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. ndow (5) - Rochester, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 26, 2003 does not count
A reddish brown color with a small head. smells fresh and clean.
good smooth yet sharp taste and it is not a filling beer.

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 (10374) - 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. Reid (2536) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 15, 2003
Bought this in the usual ( damn near universal) clear glass18.6 oz bottle with "The One and Only" raised in the glass.
I actually like the appearance of this beer in my glass it is a nice warm brown almost deep ruby colour the head is small but lingers well..
However compared to the look the smell is ..not that good..cheap beer smell really.
Taste is average macro ..i was dissapointed I tasted Newcastle Brown on tap back in Scotland..it was a much more wholesome tase..this bottled stuff has some additives probably corn syrups not good in an English beer.
Still feels pretty good in the mouth not too much carbonation ..
Quyite a drinkable beer..but not at all great or even very good.

Red to brown in color. Bone colored, creamy and medium sized head. It tastes "a bitt nutty", and not very bitter. Sweet beer as most brown ales are. Finish is sweet and a very little hint of bitterness. heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 10, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2004 Great amber color. tends not to scare away inexperienced beer drinkers who won't drink anything other than macroswill. My favorite bar just quit carrying this on tap!! What a disapointment.
