2.43/5  rDev -23.8%

Appearance: pours 1” foamy head that dissipates slowly and leaves significant lacing. Color is reddish brown. Mild carbonation bubbles.
Aroma: yeasty bread dough (like when a lump of dough has been left to rise), fruity hop aroma is mild but noticeable
Mouthfeel: watery and slightly sticky. Finish is very dry and somewhat astringent.
Flavor: the rye malt is clearly evident and provides a less sweet flavor than barley malt (at least in this brew. I have not tried other rye beers, so I do not know if this is normal). The rye has a bite that combines with a citrus peel hop flavor. Taste profile includes raisins. I would enjoy this more if the bitterness were better balanced with more malt sweetness.
Overall: Werewolf is good (not great) and is a decent addition to the rotating seasonal lineup from Newcastle.

2.94/5  rDev -7.8%

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.
