Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass at around 45°
Appearance: Orange/copper color with a light beige one finger head that quickly dissipates.
Smell: Orange/citrus hop aromas along with a hint of pale malts. Grassy notes as well
Taste: Pale and sweet malts balanced with floral, piney, and citrus hops.
Mouthfeel: Light body; Crisp and refreshing with slight dryness and bitterness
Overall: One of the first crafts I recall consuming along with Torpedo and Boston Lager. I dont drink this nearly as much since my palate has developed towards heavier beers, but its still quite balanced and has just about everything you could ask for in an APA. Considering price and availability, you will be hard pressed to find a better pale ale without treading into IPA territory. A classic and rightfully so!

The driving range and par 3 that I frequent used to have Newcastle in cans. It had been a while and I had since become a hop fan, so when I got back into golf, I was thinking "ok, it's better than ****-light". But oh, what the devil?!? They now have Sierra Nevada in cans! I took it as a good omen. (I think this beer has actually helped me with my fade.)

A great drinking beer. The appearance is a light orange with a nice white head. The smell is full of hops but does have some more earthy smells in it as well. The taste is great with a burst of hop flavor in the beginning that fades into a toasty malt flavor that finishes the beer well. I can definitely see how this one is a popular beer today.
