24 oz. bottle in an imperial pint glass.
A- Pours a deep amber color with a medium off-white head. It had medium carbonation and decent lacing.
S- Lots of floral and piney hops with some sweeter malt tones to bring it a little closer to balance.
T- Definite hop flavor is present, but it doesn't overpower the bready tones. More in balance than the aroma lets on.
M- There's a bit of a bite and tingle from the carbonation and hop flavor.
D- I could definitely drink more than one of these in a sitting. I had a 24 oz. bottle and wouldn't mind putting back another 12oz.
Overall- I consider this a good representation of the style. With the availability as it is, it isn't something I need to seek out, but it's a good "go-to" beer especially when options may run thin.

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.
