Well bittered and a deep colour, not like the old fashioned brown ales but almost a mild colour. Nutty with malts and just a hint of chocolate coming off the roated malts.
It has a full bitterness so it's not a mild, bit like a Newkie Brown with that finish and really big taste. We can remember a night in Newcastle but we can't remember how it ended except it all went wrong... That was Newkie Brown.. Be warned, you'll end up on the wrong side of the river with no money and wearing a black and white scarf.
