Newcastle Werewolf Blood Red Ale Review

Newcastle Werewolf Blood Red Ale

English Brown Ale [Type 47] 5.0% ABV

Newcastle has been making limited editions recently, a trend that that I wholly support. In the summer, there was Newcastle Summer Ale, and now we get this malty brew. Despite being red, it is a brown ale, like Newcastle itself. It tastes much like Newcastle, but it has more body and more bite. Hence the name. It is brewed with rye malt, giving it a bit more bitterness than typical for a brown.


I like Newcastle, so I generally like Newcastle variants too. I think the Newcastle Summer Ale was my favorite of the three, but I am a fan of the Werewolf too.
