Pours a brownish red with a beige head. The front taste of this beer is a well balance of malts. The ending taste highlights the bitterness described on its label. Bitterness is not too overwhelming and appears balanced enough to enjoy several bottles of this brew. The mouthfeel is of a dry feel with a hoppy aftertaste.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

12oz bottle at 41 F poured into a pilsner glass. Bottle code is 31 05 A L 126 59 14.

Pour is fairly nice looking. Rich amber copper, with a decent head, dissipates to a film fairly quickly. Almost no carbonation. Smell is lagery, yeasty, mild, slightly skunky.

Taste is mildly sweet and tea-like -- reminds me of normal Newcastle, but more caramelly. Watery.

Mouthfeel is watery. Overall, it's an OK beer.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.75

A: Medium to chestnut brown, very clear, nice amount of tan head.

S: Some toasted malts in there, almost a lager like aroma from somewhere... Heavy on the burnt sugar/caramel aromas, it almost comes off a little cloying. There is almost a hint of soy sauce in this.

T: Caramel and toasted malts, there is something a little odd about it. Perhaps a little smoky, but not in a great way, almost an ashtray thing. Odd.

M: Medium light in body, very high carbonation.

O: Overall an odd little beer, a little off. I could see it appealing to a broader audience, but this one just isn't for me.

Once again, my local, in-person trader, tone77, has dropped off some interesting bottles that I may not have picked up myself, but it keeps me honest instead of just CANtinuing with The CANQuest (TM).

From the bottle: "Escaped From Britain"; "From the One & Only [shredded as if by claws]"; "Blood Red Ale"; "Formidable Beast"; "What better way to toast the fall than to have a bottle of this formidable, dual character brew. At first smooth with mellow overtones of sweet berry fruit, a bite of bitterness suddenly cuts through, long, deep and lingering. Brewed with Rye Malt, it is naturally 'blood red' in colour. Unlike the mythical wolf-like creature said to roam the bleak moorland surrounding Newcastle, this is real, so consider yourself warned!"

Yo, thiz iz madd real, yo! As is my wont, I employed an aggro pour, allowing it to flow freely out of the bottle, which in turn began a pseudo-cascade that produced three fingers of dense, tawny head with great retention. I would put the color more as deep-copper (SRM = X), as opposed to "blood red", but neither am I going to quibble. Clarity was button-bright and I was ready to begin howling in response. Warren Zevon was doing "Werewolves of London" on YouTube and so begins the day. The nose had a strawberry/raspberry scent underlain by a bready maltiness. Mmmm. Mouthfeel was medium and the taste was quite unexpected, even given the label's verbiage. It had an initial kiddie-candy like flavor that was overtaken fairly quickly by a tangy bitterness. Finish was semi-dry, with the rye giving it a slight bite at the end. This was an easily quaffable beer and disappeared more quickly than I realized.
