When I was at uni I had a love affair with Newcastle Brown. It was definitely a go to on long evening sessions a the London Bar (RIP). So when I was told that the new Big Drop drop was a similar drink to Newcastle Brown I got a little excited. Bearing in mind it has been a good 20+ years since I have enjoyed a brown ale!
It pours a beautiful deep amber with a good frothy head (especially if you’re a rough pourer like me!). The smell instantly takes me back to sticky carpets and indoor smoke of the early 2000’s. The flavour is pretty spot on too! Caramelly, malty with a nice bitter finish, this holds onto your mouth well.
I’ll be sending a can to my Dad to get his professional opinion (as the one who got me onto the NB in the first place) but for me this is a winner. Team it with a good hearty winter meal and you can’t go wrong!
