Poured this Newcastle brown ale from a pint bottle into a pint glass. It pours a light brown color, very clear. It has a thick off white creamy head. The head quickly vanishes, head retention is poor. Lacing is average at best. The aroma is not very appealing, i don't smell any "nut" to speak of- it actually smells more like a czech pils then it does a nut brown. The body is very light and the mouthfeel is very "watery". This beer is very disappointing because the last time a had this(about 4 years ago I loved it, it was a staple in my fridge). I just remember it being so much better. It's amazing how much your tastes evolve. This was one of my first "gateway beers"- I'll have to give it respect due to the fact that it put me on a path... a path to better beer- unfortunately for New Castle, I found it....Prost!
