Like it. More bitter but still worthy profile - July 27, 2013
Tasted like a good ale but unfiltered, good but slightly less so than the regular brown ale

Just awful. No other way to describe it. It's like regular Newcastle, but frothier and less interesting. There is a moment in the middle where it misleads you into thinking everything will be ok, then it shits in your face with a HORRIFIC metallic finish. Their IPA was similarly bad, but this one seals the fate that I will not every drink one of their beers again. I'd rather drink Shock Top and grow a vagina than drink this rust bucket of shit water.

Light but hoppy. Slightly sour and bitter.

Not bad. Like a session beer.

As a longtime fan of Newcastle, I was interested to try this offering. Pleasantly surprised! It's flavorful, lighter on the stomach than the Old Brown Brick and refreshing. A good seasonal transition from the dark beers of winter to the lighter beers of summer.

Tastes just like all other new castle beers. There are better pale ales out there

Draft beer with little hops and smooth. Feels like tiny bubbles. A little bitter but not major aftertaste. Tastes dry.
