Color is a perfect amber. Very little head that did disapate quite quickly but is normal for an English ale. Very little aroma but the taste does compensate for that. There is the Carmel malts and some roastyness. A good session beer for the fall as the days shorten.

4.3/5  rDev +35.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Solid brown with heavy tan foam and a hint of red; like vampire blood, excellent for the season.

Smell: Berries (mainly raspberries) and caramel. Very sweet overall. The fruity smells definitely comes as a surprise.

Taste/Mouthfeel: More sweet fruit (berries and caramel again). Surprisingly enjoyable. Mouthfeel has a nice medium-bodied yeasty quality.

Overall Drinkability: I somewhat expected a tacky Halloween beer, especially given the fact that I don't particularly like regular Newcastle. This stuff hits the spot though. The candy flavors, color, and name are a perfect compliment to Halloween.

Picked up a cartloads of this brew as it was on Halloween special price where a twelver was less than a typical sixer. So did my instinct pan out? Let's give a whirl. Popping the top I get a nice zesty roasted malt smell. Pours into a trusty pint to a deep bronze with a two finger foamy head. The taste starts with a nice hop bite the phases into a sweet yet tangy malt base then transitions to a gradually sweeter finish with a broad robust yet zesty bitterness fading in the background. A very tasty brew I will purchase again as well as Newcastles Brown Ale that is also tasty.

12 oz. bottle poured into mug

L: red ... 100% amber with some brown; holds a good thick off-white head, over 1/2 inch, pushing a full inch, and it didn't need a big pour to get it to percolate; a little bit of stick and lace, but more impressive -- one fantastic collar, almost looks like a Belgian

S: malty malt and malt goodness ... light and sweet, very nutty; just a hint of grain when it's cold

T: English malt ... reminds me of every good pale ale and brown ale I've had, sweet bready malts with just a pinch of spice bite from the hops; the rye might be in there but it's hard for me to distinguish, perhaps just a bit of a sour wheat note; malt sometimes gives a chocolate note

F: very strong, great carbonation, super drinkable

O: love it. it's much like the brown ale from Newcastle but with a definitive twist, I'm assuming from the rye
