Newcastle Cabbie has a very thick, creamy, beige head, pronounced lacing, a clear, deep, reddish, dark-brown appearance, and a few ascending stray bubbles. Aroma is of sweet, bready, brown bread crust, and the flavor is of the same, with a noticeable medium roastiness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Newcastle Cabbie finishes mostly wet, refreshing, and delicious. No off flavors or aromas. So delicious!

As you will find from my reviews, which is something I only recently started to write, I won't go overboard with all the beer jargon about aromas and hints of this or that. I just want to state whether I liked it or not. So, here's my opinion about Newcastle Cabbie. This is fine beer to drink with dinner, or to sip while relaxing in your favorite place to relax. It's smooth and mild. The flavor is full on the palate and taste buds with an end that's very mildly bitter. As I wrote to my older brother who doesn't like dark ales and lagers, this ale is a manly beer. It's not for college boys, redneck mud truckers, or pussy whipped metrosexuals who think their lite beer piss water is actually a fine brew.
