A really smooth pale ale. More bitter than I expected and the best if the new castle beers I have tried. Smells skunky

Basically a kicked up newcastle, which I like. The base is a traditional nutty Newcastle with more bite and caramel flavor. I subtracted points due to the slightly unbalanced flavor. zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 30, 2013
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold with a puffy white head. Slightly dry malt aroma with a light hint of caramel. Dry and lightly bitter at the start with a semi-sweet middle and a very surprising bitter bite at the end. jhgrantjr (473) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 26, 2013
On tap at Mellow Mushroom, pours a golden clear color, small white head. Aroma has that Newcastle smell, malty, but not as heavy. Taste is also Newcastle with some light hoppiness. I'm not a fan.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a small bubbly white head.of bubbly foam. Aroma is grassy and floral. Taste of bitter grassy hops, and some grain-like sweetness.

Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a transparent golden orange with white head and lively carbonation. Smells doughy and skunky. Tastes like it smells, but better, with a nice, refreshing hop presence. Crisp and clean on the palate. Light and enjoyable. dogbomb (1217) - ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2013
Red hot day, so figured I’d give this shot. Bottle. Amber ale with a thin white head. Distinctive "brown ale" malty nose. Not quite as heavy though. Gravy, malt and light hop. Taste is like a light brown ale - a bit like a brown ale shandy. Quite refreshing, but I’m not a massive fan of that distinctive "newcastle" taste, so it’s not a favourite. vamp666 (15) - - JUN 1, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2013 This is a great summer Ale. Burgers, hotdogs, and a nice summer ale kicks ass. Good times bowlnman1990 (94) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Aroma: floral and hops. Appearance: thin head, full amber/yellow color, little lacing. Taste: weaker than I was expecting, slight citrus? Palate: thin, short wet finish. Overall: it’s alright, worth trying but not something I will drink regularly. johndoughty (5452) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle. Unusual bitter taste with some citrus. Didn’t leave any lacing. Think I liked but its one of those beers that could go either way. Worth trying if nothing else is available.
