The Newcastle Brown Ale tastes a whole lot better.
Something off with this beer.

An earthy, chalky, dirty, smokey taste. All followed by a burnt caramel follow through.

Taste Rating in Words: Crumble a cigarette in dirt add a pinch of caramel and go in head first.

Aroma Is rye,toasted malt, caramel.
Look: Dark brown color. Small white head.
Taste is a little bit off ash with other flavors in aroma.
feel: Thin beer, refreshing; little carbonation.

Very simple, but I kind of like it.

Has the appearance of a Heineken with a little bit of food coloring added. Tastes like a mass produced European beer with a touch of roasted barley and some sort of adjunct added. Bitter hops flavoring that is powerful and doesn't match the style. Odd carbonation with a weak head, low alcohol, and a thin body. An embarrassment really. And to think I could have just reached for the regular Newcastle instead.

Bottle from Albertsons. Exceedingly average beer, faint aroma and taste, a little bit of roast malt and hops bite that fades fast. Not much to write home about here.

Light brown pour with ample clarity for a liquid that brown. Aroma was malty red ale burton yeast similarities. Taste was like a heartier Newcastle brown ale, slightly more bitterness and hopping.

Mouthfeel was more thick than the reg, but that ain't hard. Straddles brown and red ale territory.

12 oz. bottle, no bottled on date present. Acquired a single bottle of this stuff as part of a mixed six pack.

Poured into a Duvel tulip snifter.

A - Pours a dark semi-clear garnet reddish brown body. Slow rising streams of carb. One finger of frothy thin off-white head. Some okay fluffy scattered lacing. Looks okay for what it is.

S - Dusty malts. Notes of toast & brown bread. Cheap & toasty, slightly skunky.

T - Flavor follows the nose: bready, toasty, nutty, malty. Cheap, stale, dusty chocolate malts. Would much prefer the original to this. Poor depth & duration of flavor. Maybe some indistinct fruitiness?

M - Feel is smooth & thin. Watery & light; easy-drinking.

Overall, bland and uninteresting. Would prefer the original to this.

Newcastle Werewolf -----3/5.
