Small head that dissipates quickly. Lacing does not stick around. Dark reddish brown body. Clear. Good carbonation.
Toasted malts and corn. Pretty mild.
Toasted malts and corn. Very light hops that are hard to detect but add a light lemony freshness. Some residual sweetness.
Pretty good. Almost medium bodied. Carbonation is spot on.
I don't really want to like this beer. The ingredients taste kind of cheap. But as I throw back a few I'm finding that it grows on me. Newcastle tastes like a watered down, sweet, adjuncty Guinness.

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.
A - Poured a very clear reddish copper color. Decent enough head that retreats to lacing.
S - Very pronounced European hop note with little malt aroma.
T - Bitter hops with some hint of malt.
M - Medium body with a dry finish.
O - I honestly thought I was drinking a Heineken that someone had colored brown. This really isn't what I expect from a Brown Ale - not say it was bad - just not what I expected.
