Zesty in character and jam-packed with a creamy finish, the Newcastle Winter IPA is full-bodied and hoppy, delivering unique and authentic malt flavors for the cold season and snowy matchdays.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Not sure what I really expected from Newcastle, but this is pretty bad. Plenty of skunk to go with the caramel malts. Pretty light palate. Bleh.

berrya785 (441) - Kansas, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Pours a clear amber color with a half-inch head and good lacing. Underwhelming aroma that featured malt, mild hops and grain. Taste is sweet malt, mild hops, and grain.

Pours a light brown with little head and dece t lacing. Aroma of grains, biscuit malt. Watery taste of toasted malt, some sweetness, maybe some nuttiness and slight leathery taste in finish. Not much bitterness for an IPA, even an English IPA. Low carbonation. Not very complex or good. Doesn't taste too bad just not much taste at all. Drinkable if you like flavored water as your beer. Wouldn't buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

richc (239) - Bolton, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2013
Aroma is caramel, lots of caramel and nothing else. Pours golden with an off white head. Flavour is more caramel with a touch of bitterness. Over all this beer isnít an IPA and is a bit dull.

keepersj12 (3062) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Pours amber with no head. The aroma is bland, a bit of caramel and some biscuit. The flavor ha the caramel and bit of metal. Not much in the way of hops. Certainly not an IPA, and an average ESB.

Well I expected this to be terrible, not that I would let any such bias affect my rating! But it wasnít terrible. Thatís not to say it was good. Mostly a light grassy leafy hop nose, slight pepper to the flavors. Hops overall very restrained, mostly showing up as a light bitterness to the finish. Otherwise smooth bready malts.
