Bottle from Capone’s. Pours straw colored with 0f-white minimal head. Nose is malt, spicy hops. Tastes malty, ESB-ish, with earthy malt notes, some hops, and not a lot of complexity. Comes off like a slightly hoppier and less malty Newcastle brown.

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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at home. Nose is nutty brown malt, some earthy hop. Amber brown in colour, thin loose white head. Aroma also has a lager yeast nose. Palete is thin and watery. Medium carbonation. Flavour is malt semi sweet. fruity yeast ester. some metalic flavour. Drinkable but to call this an IPA is crazy.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden-orange in colour with a very small head. Has plenty of dry pale ale character, both aroma and taste are well served in a full bodied ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled 14/09/13. A brown beer with a grey head. A malty beer with brown fruits. A fusty edge. Sweet and low hopped. It does want it sets out to do quite well and there’s nothing nasty but it is a bit shallow.
