I got this beer on tap at a beer garden.
Newcastle Werewolf is brown in color with a slight reddish hue to it. I personally didn't notice much of a smell at all and I took some pretty deep whiffs. Upon trying it the first thought that came to mind was this is probably what gutter water taste like. Having had a pitcher the first pint of Werewolf was pretty brutal to get through, but by the second I'd become immune to the taste. Werewolf is slightly carbonated but feels very flat. It really does taste like dirty water.

No freshness date on it but I will note that the bottle says blood red ale not english brown...
A= Pours a dark amber to brown color when held to the light it is clearly an amber color with a small head on it that is bright white and holds some retention but not much. The lacing is minimal.
S= Smells like a buiscuty toasty amber. There is actually a little alcohol in the nose despite the low alcohol.
T= The taste is big on the alcohol! What the hell is going on here. It tastes like a shot of vodka. A little buiscuit and toast but a lot of vodka.
M= An ideal amount of carbonation
O= What the hell is going on here. Did they accidentally bottle booze or is this beer. This is the worst tasting beer I've had in a long long time.

Newcastle Werewolf is a crystal clear amber ale topped with a bubbly, white foam that leaves nice lacing. It smells sweet and syrupy with herbal, root beer-like notes. It smells warm. Light bodied and a bit watery, it leaves the tongue a bit raw. Let's address this poisonous taste. Is that fusel? It tastes like fusel and flatulence. There's a touch of candy sweetness and a touch of juniper bitterness, but it's still pretty much fart water.

Poured from a chilled bottle into a footed ale glass.
Appearance: A pleasant, caramel-golden brown with a off-white creamy head that dissipates relatively quickly.
Smell: A fresh yeast smell with hints of rye and spices
Taste: Weak flavors of grains, pepper, and cloves with a cloying, bitter aftertaste
Mouthfeel: Low carbonation and lighter body with a slight oily feeling
Overall, the appearance and aroma set up expectations that the taste couldn't back up. A poor substitute to the standard Newcastle Brown Ale.

Poured into a pint glass. Nice copper color, 1-finger head that disappears quickly. Minimal lacing.
Faint aroma that is puzzling to me ... Malt? Berries? Really not strong enough to put my finger on it.
Taste is a quick malty/citrus jolt that is immediately overpowered by the carbonation. Nice bitterness on the finish, but nowhere near the malty, nutty flavors I would expect from an English Brown Ale.
Waaay too much carbonation, to the point where it feels (and tastes) like seltzer water with a spritz of ale tossed in.
A pretty tasteless and unsatisfying brew.
Does not compare on any level to my favorite Brown Ale by Legend Brewing of Richmond VA.
