My caramel maerzen is what new castle would be if it was twice as much malt and flavor.
I just brewed a 'clone' on Sunday... Rogue Dead Guy Ale. Though, the kit was developed along with Rogue, so maybe clone isn't the right word.
If I was going to make a Newcastle clone, I'd probably modify it by adding lots of extra hops and an extra pound or two of light DME to make it drinkable.
My next 5 gallon batch is going to be a nut brown ale kit, and I am planning on doing the same thing.
