2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I am much fan of the gr8 new castle brown ale. I could not turn down this blonde beaut beer of sexy lady and splendor. I am not like this as much as the brown ale type, but do enjoy in hot sun after much work. Also wish for more alcohol... 4.4% = low boost.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 28-02-Y-L039-24/19:01. It pours pale yellow with a fizzy but quick lasting white head. The aroma is of pale malts, light hops, with yeast that smells like cardboard or a musty attic. The body is light. The taste is grainy with a low bitterness at the end. So far Newcastle has not impressed me with their non-Brown ale recipes.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap@ TacoMac, Cumming. Clear, golden pour. White foam. Smells of wet cardboard box, stale grains, butter. Tastes like curdled butter left on the counter. Sharp hop bitterness, like sucking in a piece of bark. Do they really like this in the UK. (3727)

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Location: Draft at Surf City, 6/8/13
Aroma: The nose has buttered bread, some stale malts, and not much else
Appearance: This one pours a golden color with a white head atop it
Flavor: The flavor is pretty much the buttery mess I expected from the nose
Palate: The body is light-medium, and it actually has a decent feel if you can get past the taste
This was just a terrible beer. I found it to be a complete mess. I could barely get through a couple of sips. It seems like other have given this a better score, so perhaps we got it from a bad keg, because the one I had was just not good at all.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear amber with a good off-white head. Aroma is malty and lagerish, slightly fruity. Malty flavor has a fruity undertone, typical but still refreshing. Decent body and fair fizziness round out a nice blond ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour is a clear yellow with a average white head. Aroma started out with some burning but that left quickly and what was left was some dry cracker malt. Flavor is again some dry malt, roasted nuts and I agree with the rater below me picking up some coffee notes. I was expecting some bland flavorless blonde ale but the flavor was a big surprise.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An easy drinking summery blonde with a grainy aroma, and pleasant, if uncomplicated, balanced profile. Pours deep clear golden with a small white ring of head. Nice grassy hops throughout with a clean lingering light malt finish. An easy quarter that would go down easily in a group of 6. Overall, better than their brown.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma is hoppy with grassy and citrus notes but mostly malty. The appearance is golden with an average head. The taste is simple but effective. The palate is average and the finish buttery. Overall a winner!
