    Newcastle

    HELLO fellow beer friends.

    Today's beer is from the UK known as, my little friend, Newcastle. Most people, myself included, have a beer that they enjoy as their everyday drink of choice. It could be a cold Bud, Miller, PBR, Coors, or Corona, but you all know that you have your 'guilty pleasure' in beer choices. Ours is Newcastle Brown Ale.

    Eric and myself find ourselves drinking this beer more often than not, and are perfectly happy with our choice. Here's the deal...... The beers mentioned before aren't bad, or most of the US and world drink them on a regular basis without giving it a second thought. However, when it comes to a beer snob like myself I can't really condone some of the ones listed above. I digress, Newcastle IS good. Period. It may not be one of the finest beers worldwide but it is a very drinkable every day beer. Solid brown color with a light caramel flavor, slightly skunky on the nose, but not on the palate. I truly believe this beer is best out of tap, followed by bottle and as cold as you can get it. The head doesn't last long, but the beer isn't that effervescent to begin with. This goes great with greasy pub food or just chillin' with some snacks on a lazy Sunday. Many a hangover has been earned by this lovely caramel brewskie. I thank you my British friends. Keep up the good work. This beer gets a solid 3.5 out of 5 Solo cups.

    Peace, Love, and Cold Beer ya'll.
