Poured from bottle to Newcastle glass the beer pours a rich dark brown color, translucent, with a small 1/2 finger cap, some retention and lacing. The aroma is a bit muted but consists of a distinct caramel malty sweetness, small earthen hops, and a nutty character. I would prefer a bit more volume as it's not bad just mild in nature. Similar the nose the beer starts and ends with the thick caramel malt sweetness with a light but noticeable earthy hop and mild bitterness. The nutty character provides a gentle yet fulfilling and balances everything out well. Finishes a bit watery and thin but crisp and clean. Lighter bodied. Overall, it's been a long time since I've had a Newcastle. This was more enjoyable than I remembered. The malty sweetness hit the spot!
