Had a 20 ounce Newcastle at the Red Star in VIrginia Beach. I am not familiar with the style and this is the first Brown Ale I have tried. Pours a nice reddish brown clear color with minimal head or lacing. Looks kind of like flat coke when held up to the light. Has a pleasant, less than overpowering smell. Taste is good....fairly mild, sweet with some malt flavor. This is not a heavy beer...not watery but less substantial than I was expecting. Drinkability is very good. The taste is not overpowering, ABV light and the beer itself is not too heavy. Even though I am primarily a hop head, I would have no problem with this as a session beer.
Serving type: on-tap
