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!

Had this from a bottle poured into a pint glass. I really enjoy Newcastle products so I figured I'd give this beer a try. This beer pours a brownish and reddish color. The smell is very coffee, chocolate and roasted malty. The taste is pretty much like the smell. You get a good mix of coffee and chocolate. First thoughts were it's very well balanced. Really not a bad beer at all. This beer seems like it would go well with different beef dinners. I liked it and recommend it.

I always like English milds. nice dark appearance with a quickly vanishing white head. In the light it has a red color. Smell is mild hops and sweet malts. Taste is the winner here. Medium baked bread with earthy hops that mellow to a light toffee. Mouthfeel is lacking and dissapates quickly.
