Newcastle Brown Ale is a gateway beer for a lot of college kids who end up getting into good beer. However the summer ale...will definitely not.
A - Pours pale gold with a water head right into my convenient Newcastle glass.
S - The mildest toasted hops are picked up vaguely. There's really not a whole lot going on here.
T - Drinks a bit like a traditional English bitter but somehow even thinner. A mild hint of hop bitterness here, a splash of malt and yeast there, but it's mostly just a straight forward beer that's cold on a hot day.
M - Thin, not challenging, and follows easy brewing to a T.
O - Not a bad beer to have around for a social gathering, as long as the gathering doesn't really care what their beer tastes like,
