look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A- Pours a muddy water brown color with a light brown head.

S- Malts, malts malts. Maybe with a hint of toffee.

T- You either like a brown ale or you don’t. I fall into the "like a brown ale" category. I think this is a good solid brown ale. The taste is pretty much all malts but that’s what most brown ales taste like, hence the reason why most people don’t like brown ales. I’ve had Rogues Hazelnut Brown Nectar and it’s REALLY good, probably my most favorite brown ale but Newcastle is not bad.

Food Pairing- This would be good with a burger or even meat loaf with some mashed potatoes.

Serving type: on-tap
