Exactly what I was expecting. Unfortunately, I wasnít expecting much. It seems like a lot of other bottled bitters - Mild hops. . Iím trying to avoid saying "bland", but if the shoe fits...

Bottle. Pours a bright copper with a short lived head. Aroma is sweet with a hint of hops. Flavor is smooth and well balanced with a hint of hops throughout. The minimal carbonation makes this beer a pleasure to drink. Break out the shepherds pie or bangers and mash to go with this one.

aracauna (3046) - Georgia, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Clear copper. I tried this because Newcastle was the beer that got me to like beer about a decade ago. This isnít a bad tribute. Negligible hops, but nice nuttiness. Very light bodied. Good session beer, although 4.8 is pushing the session limit.

morrdt (682) - Dirty Moí, North Carolina, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Draft beer from TacoMac in Huntersville, NC. Pours a nice amber color with a light tan head. Aroma is very hoppy with some malt notes. Taste is all malt with a slight hint of the hops on the end. This beer is very smooth to drink and very easy drinking as well. I can only hope the beer bottle version is the same. Good beer.

Tap @ TacoMac, Cumming. Amber color, barely a light tan head. Sharp hop, nutty malts, toasted barley character. Token Newcastle wet box scent. Toasted malts. Very easy to drink, sessionable
