hfmejias (1282) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2013
330 ml. Bottle. Poured brown clear with a little off white head. Aroma of malts, bread and perhaps caramel. Taste consistent a little bit of hops (some bitterness to it), caramel sweetness and a bit of yeast, some wateriness to it. It is not bad, but nothing really great about it either.

Barwa jasno brązowa, niska piana. Herbatniki, karmel, żelazo. Nie jest to piwo ktre można wypić z wielką przyjemnością.

Oiolosse (122) - Granada, SPAIN - MAY 14, 2017
Vierte mbar oscuro, con una espuma decente. No mucho nariz realmente. El sabor es suave y dulce y de nuez, no mucha amargura. Acabado limpio. Una cerveza decente, aunque sosa.

I was eager to try another legendary beer. Had the can version. I had this after my first baseball game today, I was very thirsty. Did not make such a good impression.

AntonyWilson (321) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - APR 26, 2017
550ml Bottle: Pours a clear amber with frothy off-white head. Slight chocolate aromas mixed with caramel and some toasted notes. Finishes slightly sweet with some toasted caramel flavours. Medium to light bodied, low carbonation and a low bitterness. Overall a very easy drinking beer that is well balanced. Enjoyed this thoroughly.

remerts2 (16) - LATVIA - APR 16, 2017
Dzidrs, tumsnēja vaŗa krāsa. Aromāts nav nekāds diais, smarā nedaudz jūt karameļu iesalus. Diezgan viegls ķermenis, bet nav ūdeņains. Pēc garas velk uz tumajiem aliem, ar ļoti mērenu iesalu garu. Pēcgarā viegls, bet nedaudz sīvs apiņu rūgtums.

Nothing spectacular, but a very drinkable beer. Slight notes of roasted malts.

Not an everyday drinking beer, also not a special occassion beer. Newcastle Brown Ale is the beer you buy when there is a sale and you are tired of your regular choices. Its nothing spectacular, but it wont let you down. If you want a beer with a little more substance and a change of pace, give it a try

The appearance of this beer in its clear bottle and the aroma gives you the thought of a full body beer. In reality it is crisp and clean in taste. I drink this beer on a hot summer day when I need a refreshment. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
