I'm just sayin'.
Yeah, I was gonna say something similar when Orfy said that Newky was his port in a storm when there was no real beer available......If he lived in the US and frequented chain restaurants here ( I doubt very much he would) ....He would find himself drinking a LOT of Newcastle Brown!

I do like an occasional Newcastle from a tap and my first home brew was targeting Newcastle. It's usually worthless in the bottle, though; I don't even try them.

I wonder the same thing as Danny13 - why the clear bottles? I have passed up a number of beers I'd be willing to try had they not been in clear bottle.
