This is a very drinkable beer where the whole is better than the sum of the parts. Pouring from the bottle into a pint glass, the head quickly dissipates and the beer has the appearance of cola, which might be off-putting for some beers but didn't bother me with Newcastle. There wasn't much distinctive to note in the aroma. Dark malt and caramel flavors dominate, which together with a light body and more carbonation than one would expect from a brown ale, combine for a refreshing beer. I've found Newcastle is a good hot weather session beer when I am avoiding Corona, Red Stripe and the like.
