A: A pale amber body is clear and very carbonated. There some foamy but quickly dissipating head that leaves little lacing. A clean and active look.
S: Quite a crisp aroma. The overall effect is very floral. Hops, yeast and citrus notes all pop with great clarity. Well balanced but bold.
T: While many of the characteristics are carried over from the smell, the taste doesn't achieve the same balance. The hops and more grassy notes dominate, but it comes across as a bit dull. Bold but flat. Some citrus finds its way through.
M: The beer has a dryer feel thanks to the grassiness of the taste. While it does have enough carbonation and doesn't feel too heavy, the feel is flat.
O: This is a very worthwhile beer. An everyday kind of brew that isn't that way because it's easy to drink. Some big and bold flavors are here, it just doesn't have the best balance.

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.
