Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a strong malt flavor but smelled stale
Appearance- pours an amber brown with a tan head.
Taste- Heavy malt flavor with some caramel but it tastes old
Palate- Medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation.
Overall- a truly average beer, pretty forgettable.

Newcastle Brown Ale - The Caledonian Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle into a glass, this beer's head is 0 fingers thick, with no lacing, and a clear dark brown body.

Smells like roasted, caramelized malts. Not much going on with hops in this beer.

I taste mostly malt with notes a caramel note throughout. Nothing really here in the hop territory.

The mouthfeel here is smooth and clean.

Overall, I'll give Newcastle Brown Ale - The Caledonian Brewing Company a 4.25
