12 oz bottle. One of my old favorites. Pours a brown yellow color w/o much head. Not much aroma to it, a slight nuttiness maybe. Mouthfeel was thin and dry. This is a thin uncomplicated brew. There is some slight caramel flavor as well as some nuttiness. Finish is thin, dry. This used to be a brew I considered exotic, but that was a long time ago. I still like it, but it seems pretty plain now. Compared to some of the other brews I’ve had.

Skunk? Wtf. Watery and boring for a brown. I'd have to check the price. Better be cheap

Aromat karmel, słód, miód, chleb. Barwa bursztynowa, ładna czapa piany. W smaku karmel, chleb, zimna kawa z cukrem, słód, niesamowicie wodniste. Goryczki brak, wysycenie średnie. Nie jestem fanem.

eunck (223) - Msida, MALTA - SEP 12, 2017
Brownish amber beer with quickly disappearing off white head. Aroma of caramel malts, a touch of honey and also some spices. Low carbonation and not too much body. Pleasant to drink but not out of the ordinary.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2017 Flot gyldenbrun farve. Karamel i næsen. Sød i munden - lidt for sød. Ellers gør den ingen fortræd.

330 ml bottle. Pours clear amber coloured, no head. Malts, a bit cocoa. Mild taste, slightly bitter and malty. Flat carbonated, light bodied. Nothing special.

Bottle (4,7%). Color is clear brown. Small head. Sweet aroma with notes of nuts and bread. Taste is well balanced, medium carbonated with notes of bread. Sweet finish. Pleasant and enjoyable.

legendary british ale that got me into drinking real ales and therefore craft beers. only reason i started drinking this was because as a teenager i clocked on that other people wouldn't pinch your bottles at house parties etc. because everyone thought "newky brown" was disgusting. it is of course a staunch, british brew that is very muddy and not really to my taste anymore, but i do still enjoy the occasional bottle. i've never, for better or worse, seen it on draught, ever, but i am from wales, not up't'north.
