I had this at the flying saucer in my American Flight. I just wasn't impressed. The flavors weren't great. I would prefer a Francolino Lager or a Shiner Bock over this. It just didn't give me the flavor the aroma offered.

I wasn't a fan of brown ale until I tried New Castle. It's strong, but not too bitter. It is definitely best cold. I don't like drinking warm ale. It is an acquired taste, but you should give it a try, you might like it.

There are so many good things to say about this beer. It's fairly inexpensive, you can find it almost anywhere, and it tastes great! One of my favorite BBQ beers!

This is my favorite beer to kick back and relax with at the end of a long Thursday. Although it's an ale, it has less hops and more malt flavors for something less bitter and easier to drink. I usually drink this at my local pub, so when I picked up a 6-pack at the grocery I was underwhelmed by the bottled stuff. I'll have to try the pony keg next.

For those stepping outside of their tiny alcohol box, I highly recommend this. It's not near as bitter as some brown or darker ales, it actually is a tad bit sweet. Let this replace the normal coors routine ;)

A great, not-overpriced brown ale that goes with nearly everything. A fantastic "transition" beer for people looking to broaden their taste horizons and step away from Miller Light and move on to bolder beers. Next step, craft beers and stouts. :)

This is a beer that I like to drink whenever I feel like drinking a good beer.

It's not some watered-down beer and it's not a scary beer, so beer connoisseurs and new beer drinkers can both enjoy.

I could not stop drinking this beer for the first year of being 21. I still enjoy the dark beer. Very tasty and it brings many good memories to me. Most bars and restarurants do carry this so definitely order one next time you're out!

Favorite go to beer. Very smooth and not bitter. Lovely dark ale that meshes well with a wide variety of food. One of the first dark beers I tried when I started drinking. I hate IPA and piss beer so this is my all time favorite!
