Newcastle Werewolf is a crystal clear amber ale topped with a bubbly, white foam that leaves nice lacing. It smells sweet and syrupy with herbal, root beer-like notes. It smells warm. Light bodied and a bit watery, it leaves the tongue a bit raw. Let’s address this poisonous taste. Is that fusel? It tastes like fusel and flatulence. There’s a touch of candy sweetness and a touch of juniper bitterness, but it’s still pretty much fart water. bpreo (2854) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Tastes too fruity. If it was real werewolf it would taste meaty. Low alcohol content too, not ferocious. troopie (2350) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark red with medium lasting whitish head. Aroma is rye and wet paper. Flavour is rye, some hop and more paper. Finish is an unpleasant paper/cardboard finish. rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - OCT 17, 2012
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear reddish brown with a thin fizzy head. No head retention or lacing at all.
Aroma of caramel, toffee, and dark fruits. A little noble hop characteristic as well.
The flavor has toasted malt and dark fruit. There is also some caramel and toffee. Kind of like regular newcastle with more roast and chocolate. Bitterness is quite light. The mouthfeel really was a let down on this beer as it is way too carbonated, almost like a soda.
Overall, I like regular Newcastle way better. The flavor profile is decent but the carbonation just throws it off. Not something I will pick up again. kidmartinek (5001) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Rich copper color. Small tan head. Malty and sweet aroma with an earthen character. It kinda has a sweet taste like cider. But its still good. You can taste the hops and the beer is not too sweet overall.

Pours a rusty red with an off white lasting frothy head with some lacing. Aroma and Taste of toasted caramel malt and grains, some fruity and grassy notes, a bit of chocolate malt and some mild bitterness. A medium body on the palates, some moderate carbonation and slightly crisp. Finish with some toasted caramel malt, fruity and grassy notes and mild hops bitterness. Aroma and flavor are a bit light. Overall an ok brew.

Was a red color (sort of like blood, I guess) and it was drinkable. And touch of fruit sweetness to the mostly bland slightly bitter base. Thin and watery. Not too good. Shink (177) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Out of the bottle from Uptown. Pours a dark brown color with a slightly off white head. Smell is a little sour and skunky. The taste is skunky and overly grainy. One of the worst beers that I have had. With that said, I am not a fan of their brown either. freekyp (2330) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 12, 2012
First impression is of distinct English malt aroma with some powdered chocolate and spearminty hops. Pours crystal clear dark brown with a thin wispy off-white head. No lacing. Thin bodied with a nice malt character. Finishes somewhat clumsily with a watery metallic twang. youdictategood (467) - Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Pours a nice reddish brown. Chocolate and malt on the nose. Unfortunately, to quote Ralph Wiggum...."it tastes like burning". Starts out like a slightly hopped up Newcastle Brown, then just goes wrong at the finish with a bad burnt meat/copper penny aftertaste. It really tastes like someone tossed a charcoal briquette and a roll of pennies into a keg. Disappointing.
