I had this on tap at my local Red Robin, served in a tulip glass.

Appearance: Dark brown opaque color with a very small off-white head and minimal lacing. Lots of carbonation in the glass.

Smell: At first I smelled nothing, but then after a moment I got the faintest hint of malt.

Taste: A bit watery on the first sip, with a malty, slight medicinal presence on the tongue. At first I was decidedly underwhelmed, but the taste actually did improve over time until I thought, "Hey, this isn't too bad."

Mouthfeel: Heavily carbonated, a bit watery, some bitterness on the back end.

Overall: On tap I have no problems drinking this beer. It's not great and not awful. I wouldn't get it in the bottle.

Bottled.
Pours golden brown with a quick dwindling off white head. Smooth crisp taste. Light on the pallet. Not my first choice... Although enjoyable.

An acquired taste, which I never managed to acquire - and I tried!

I like New Castle Brown ale, it has a great wheat taste. Very fulling, but if your buying it in the states its just to much of a price for a pint.
