Newcastle Brown ale

Newcastle Brown ale does all this and more!
Newcastle Brown ale is best served ice cold from the tap, but it's good from the bottle also. It is a great-tasting beer all round and goes down real smooth.
It's a traditional English style brown ale in both its reddish brown color and sweet flavor. Good with bar food. The overall characteristics of this beer blend nicely with each other: ironic, since Newcastle Brown is itself... a blend.
It is very easy to drink and has a nice nutty flavor. Not really good on head retention, but a good aroma and nice mouthfeel.
I would recommend this beer to almost anyone who likes a medium brown ale.
