2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2012
Location: Draft at Wicked Wolf in Hoboken, 9/28/11
Aroma: The nose is sweet and malty, rather light, with caramel and toast notes
Appearance: This one pours a mostly clear copper-red color with a foamy beige head
Flavor: The taste is what you’d expect from the nose, medium sweet, and not too much bitterness
Palate: The body is faily light (leaning medium), and the mouthfeel is clean with average carbonation
I guess Wicked Wolf got excited when they saw Wolf in the name of a beer and couldn’t resist offering it on tap. This beer was pretty much what I expected. It is very "Newcastley." That’s pretty much the best way to describe it.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a deep orange color. Little confused by the sweet berry fruit reference. Makes me think it’s fake flavor. Taste really lingers and is unpleasant primarily. Frooty with a child cold medication taste. Thumbs down. Great marketing though.

While in Columbia my son purchased this from a local store. The color is deep reddish amber. The head was was small with
Lacing. The beer had burnt malt flavor. No bitter flavors. Tasty with a smooth finiish.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper pour and not blood red interestingly. Aroma has hint of sweetness and bread. Definitely sweeter and more bitter than regular newcastle. Its lime a lower sodium version of new castle.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Unassuming, but a fair foray to start @ unto the darker days of autumn as they are approaching.
neat marketing on the label, too.
