3.36/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a strong malt flavor but smelled stale
Appearance- pours an amber brown with a tan head.
Taste- Heavy malt flavor with some caramel but it tastes old
Palate- Medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation.
Overall- a truly average beer, pretty forgettable.

Newcastle Brown Ale - The Caledonian Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle into a glass, this beer's head is 0 fingers thick, with no lacing, and a clear dark brown body.

Smells like roasted, caramelized malts. Not much going on with hops in this beer.

I taste mostly malt with notes a caramel note throughout. Nothing really here in the hop territory.

The mouthfeel here is smooth and clean.

Overall, I'll give Newcastle Brown Ale - The Caledonian Brewing Company a 4.25

3.25/5  rDev -3%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Medium/dark brown, nice carbonation. The Whitish head receeds way too quickly.

Smell: Sweet, browned toast.

Taste: Sweet, nutty malt

Mouthfeel: Water, lacks carbonation.

Though the beer is not that strong, and some would say boring, the taste is good and the beer is very refreshing. A couple of these once in a while will be nice.

This is my standard go-to beer that most bars & restaurants have. If I can't find anything else, 90% of the time, I can get Newcastle Brown.

Having said that, it isn't my favourite beer nor one to compare all others against. It just looks, smells, and tastes like a brown ale should - a good baseline, so to speak.

A beer in disguise, quality is lacking and tastes cheap. A bad brown ale
