served in clear 12 oz. bottle.
I've had this beer so many times. finally decided to review it. S&N will wish i hadn't. (ok, they don't actually care...but...)
this beer is just awful. One of the wost i've had since reviewing beers on this site. With every sip you can tell where accountants and marketing schmucks have sucked the soul out of this beer.
there's nothing there at all. other than the distinctive brown color (compared to the usual fizzy yellow lagers), newcastle has little to offer. the maltiness just doesn't exist and in its place is nothing but hard, metallic, brown water. the beer doesn't smell like much more than hard water, either. a total yawner of a beer.
this is one of the most over-rated beers in the world, imho. it's flavors do a disservice to brown ales everywhere. pass on this one.
