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!

Appearance - It is a very dark brown in color, with a white head.

Smell - It is a sweet / fruity malt smell.
