I really enjoy drinking this beer. Has a sweet chocolate/caramel taste and goes down extremely smooth. gjamieson (80) - Canton, Georgia, USA - MAR 30, 2003
Why is it that every time I drink a Newcastle, I feel like I'm eating a Heath candy bar? I like the taste, but it's almost too sweet. It goes down easy and is enjoyable, but Bells Best Brown is much better. Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - MAR 30, 2003
Deep amber colour, no trace of head. Caramel and nuts in the aroma. The flavour is too mild, with some sweet notes (caramel) and a little sourness. Weak nut finish. It seemed very watery to me. Not a terrible beer, but simply it has no character. ksaker (4) - Indiana, USA - MAR 29, 2003 does not count
Not bad...crisp clean taste and beautiful color. Very good beer to have your newbie beer tasting friends try... JPDIPSO (6263) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAR 26, 2003
Bottle. Clear copper color with a moderate light tan head. Heavy caramel aroma with a hint of hops and english ale yeast. Quite fizzy. Caramel and floral hops flavors with a somewhat biting acidity. Bitterness only comes out in the finish. Nothing extrordinary, but a very drinkable brown ale.

Definate maltyness, in the aroma and in the flavor, although the aroma is somewhat fruity while the flavor has more of a nuttyness. Somewhat golden brown in color. No head to speak of. Smooth and clean; goes down nice and easy. My first brown; I will definately be trying more. awaller05 (305) - Sharon, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2003
Well as I said as I was rating the other Brown Ales is that this is becoming one of my favorite styls to try. I'm glad this isn't my first attempt at a brown ale. It smells tinny when poured, but has the nice brown tint to it. Taste is watery and is easily downed. As browns go this is a nice beginner, but doesn't hold a stick to Bells.

Better than I thought it would be. It had a reddish amber color without much head, a malty, roasty and a bit fruity aroma with flavors of malty caramel with some nuttiness. A good thirst quencher. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 18, 2003
Pours a dark copper with good head. Decent malty balance with a slightly chocolate finish. Smooth and enjoyable, but not spectacular. Pretty good though for its wide availability. OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2003
Mild, sweet malty aroma. Brown/orange/red colour with an off-white fizzy head. Taste is light, mostly sweet malt and caramel with a faint bitter finish. Thin and light-bodied.
