From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped 31-03-X-L0775908. Sampled on June 14, 2012. Newcastle has brewed up a golden yellow beer that has a short lasting head and an odd aroma. I get malts, yeast, and floral hops on the nose but there is something else offsetting the whole thing...something akin to ginger. The body is summer seasonal light and creamy. The taste has a kind of cardboard like maltiness with a more notable bitter hop finish that lingers for a moment. There are summer seasonals from other brewers that I find to be more appealing than this one. I think I will stick with their traditional nut brown ale.
