Default I am in love....

My new favorite beer...Newcastle. There is just something I love about this beer. I know it doesn't have good head but i don't care. It tastes so good i can't get enough. I have already picked a clone that I am going to brew so i can have 5 gallons!! What do you guys think about it?

I think it's meh. If there isn't any other good beer available, I'll order one. It's definitely not the best example of a brown ale in my opinion.

I made an English Brown ale as my second ever batch, and it closely approximated Newcastle. It was well liked by my friends.

Here's what a couple others have said in the past. Personally i prefer it over most restaurant choices.

It's the best thing served at the bowling alley on league night.

I'd be left with the choices of Bud, Bud Light, or Corona if not for Newcastle.

But I don't drink it anywhere else.

Of course, you like what you like; nothing wrong with that.

I'm conflicted about newcastle because as a brown ale I find it a bit weak and watery, but I'm a pretty "brew-to-style" kind of guy.

I find that I don't dislike the beer itself, it just fails to impress as a brown ale.

It is what I'll get from time to time. It is a good alternative to what I'll typically find on tap and widely available, so I don't mind drinking it. I think you can make five gallons of brown ale and have it come out much better. It sounds like you have a brown ale brew day calling your name.

I'll second that... Before I tried it I had heard a lot of hype about how great it was. When I gave it a go I was disappointed at how thin it was and it didn't have much flavour. It's not a bad beer per se, but it's not something I would get again... I guess I'm just used to brown's with a bit more body and taste.

Alesmith in SD makes one of the best brown ales in the world, and I'm happy to drink it. I think Newcastle is weak and not really anything impressive at all. I used to drink it, but I won't bother now.

Sitting on a balcony, overlooking Trump National golf course in LA, with the Pacific Ocean 200 meters away, sipping Newcastle out of a can while watching the sun set over the ocean....

I really enjoyed it then.
