I always like English milds. nice dark appearance with a quickly vanishing white head. In the light it has a red color. Smell is mild hops and sweet malts. Taste is the winner here. Medium baked bread with earthy hops that mellow to a light toffee. Mouthfeel is lacking and dissapates quickly.

3.16/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a dark brown with a light tan head that leaves spotty lacing. Aroma is mildly fruity and mild toasted malt. Taste is lightly toasted malt, a hint of chocolate, and smoke. Quick finish of cocoa and toasty malt. Light body, thin and watery palate, light to average carbonation. Fairly weak and somewhat disappointing to my palate.

I am not a fan of this beer. It isn't even really better than the big AALs, just different, IMHO.

For me, this is a miss for Newcastle in their desire to bring something else to the table in the craft brew game. I will try the Bombshell next time...

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Poured dark reddish brown with a good size head that settles to a thin layer but leaves good lacing.

S: Mild, with roasted grains, some caramel, and a hint of coffee.

F: The flavor follows, but with some light hops at the finish... and not as strong as hoped. Pretty well balanced.

M: Crisp yet smooth; dry finish; medium-thin body.

O: A good looking brew, with good flavor for style and for a 4.2% ABV.
