Medium brown and clear. Off-white dense head that has moderate- retention. Nice lacing from a beer clean glass.
Sweet malt with cocoa powder, caramel and roasted banana. Not much hop influence on the nose. Mild scorched quality in the background.
Scorched quality continues on the palate and becomes more prominent. Mild hop bitterness to offset the malt sweetness. Needs more texture in the back palate. Fairly flat in flavor.
Medium-bodied with a watery back end. Short finish.
It's been a while since I have had Newcastle Brown. Will have to revisit. Wonder is it is a bad keg. I remember this beer having more to it.
Serving type: on-tap
