Clear dark brown with three fingers of off white head that last about ten minute and leaves a curtain of lace behind. Aroma is dark roasted malts with a hint of coffee.
Taste is dark roasted malt with some sweetness and a touch of earthy bitter hops.
Mouthfeel i thin and well carbonated for the style.
Overall a very tasty beer for such a low alcohol level.

Served in a signature Newcastle wellington glass from a 12 oz. bottle.

Appearance: Dark brown ale, has a black slightly opaque tone to it with a thin body. Head is off-white and settles quick after one sip or two. Head originally as high as a finger's length with a hard pour as usual.

Smell: Smells like raw hops but light. Nothing complex but not bad to take a few sniffs here and there.

Taste: Mild Hops, bland and wish there was more. I know it supposed to be mild but sometimes I feel like there are "light" beers that pack more punch as far as flavor.

Mouth: Medium to heavy carbonation, toasty finish. Might remind you a bit of a bavarian lager.

Overall: You know I really try to like this beer. I don't hate it but I am not going to love it either. Worth trying at least once, maybe at least to get credit for the review :-/ Salud!

As you will find from my reviews, which is something I only recently started to write, I won't go overboard with all the beer jargon about aromas and hints of this or that. I just want to state whether I liked it or not. So, here's my opinion about Newcastle Cabbie. This is fine beer to drink with dinner, or to sip while relaxing in your favorite place to relax. It's smooth and mild. The flavor is full on the palate and taste buds with an end that's very mildly bitter. As I wrote to my older brother who doesn't like dark ales and lagers, this ale is a manly beer. It's not for college boys, redneck mud truckers, or pussy whipped metrosexuals who think their lite beer piss water is actually a fine brew.
