Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Pours a light copper with soft white bubbly head. Aroma has some light toffee accents, a bit of nuttiness. Flavor has some root beer candy notes, some brown sugar, some ripening vegetable notes, a caramel like sweet finish. Mouthfeel is just on the good side of thick. Not bad.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a red-orange-tan color with a large foamy-soapy tan head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet, tangy, corny and malty with a hint of toffee and faint sour fruits. The flavor was tangy and sour with a bit of bread, honey, toffee and sour fruits. Medium length tangy, sour and fruity finish. Medium body. Uninspiring. Braudog (6719) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle. Dark amber-orange, standard "American head" .. drinks as you’d expect, rich with caramel malt, and a nice fall, woodsy outdoorsiness. Not a bad interpretation. (#5302, 10/27/2013) Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2014

[Draft @ Ortino’s pizza] Brown color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel, toast, toffee, and bread. Taste of caramel, nuts, toasted malts, and light roast. berkshirejohn (6505) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2012
12oz bottle from Wegmans, King of Prussia, PA. A brilliant golden amber colour with a fast fading cream head; simple malty aroma - almost like a brown ale; straightforward malty flavour, slightly metallic towards the end; and a malty finish.mansquito (6439) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2012
This reminds me of the time, many years ago, when I was training to be an Analytical Chemist and one of the exercises we were set was to identify and measure the metals contained in a sample of Newcastle Brown Ale from a metal can - we didn’t know at the time that the supervisor had spiked the sample, so were rather alarmed to discover that it contained lethal quantities of tin! Anyway this is probably how it would have tasted.
New Beer Distributors, NY 355ml ($2): Pours an amber color with a whitish head. Aroma is caramel malt and metallic lager. Taste is slightly sweet. Slightly watery. Tastes similar to the Traditional Lager, but with perhaps some more malt. That being said, it tastes more or less like an Oktoberfest should be tasting.

On tap at Bearden Beer Market. Coppery orange, thin but sturdy white head. Smells like caramel and white bread toast, which is also a pretty good description of the flavor. Finishes with a subtle hop bite. obguthr (6369) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Mild grass, dried leaves. Crystal clear amber, thin head. Honey, malt, some fusel alcohol. Frothy. Meh.
