Vaguely amber colour, but it isn’t all that attractive. Bleached white head. Aroma us mostly overripe fruit. Taste is like neutered newkie, mineral water, and more overripe fruit. Not a fan, kind of a poor brand extension.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A: The pour is an innocent enough looking golden color with a mild, white head. Quite summery, indeed...
S: Nothing says summer quite like the smell of...butter? Tons o’ diacetyl with a bit of sweet orange and sweet malt.
T: Though I did not believe it to be possible, the flavor displays even more butter than the nose! Buttered popcorn with a side of butter and a mild sweetness as well.
M: Light and somewhat spritzy. Perhaps a touch watery.
D: This was bordering on awful. I’ll simply classify it as really bad and suggest staying away from this beer.

From Taco Mac. Damn what the hell? Newcastle should not have done this. Bland and boring. Yellow pour, white head. Aroma is just flat and light...hops? Barely? Malt? weak. Flavor? Hmmm, just not good. Not at all. Very bummed.
