look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

12oz bottle at 41 F poured into a pilsner glass. Bottle code is 31 05 A L 126 59 14.

Pour is fairly nice looking. Rich amber copper, with a decent head, dissipates to a film fairly quickly. Almost no carbonation. Smell is lagery, yeasty, mild, slightly skunky.

Taste is mildly sweet and tea-like -- reminds me of normal Newcastle, but more caramelly. Watery.

Mouthfeel is watery. Overall, it's an OK beer.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.75

A: Medium to chestnut brown, very clear, nice amount of tan head.

S: Some toasted malts in there, almost a lager like aroma from somewhere... Heavy on the burnt sugar/caramel aromas, it almost comes off a little cloying. There is almost a hint of soy sauce in this.

T: Caramel and toasted malts, there is something a little odd about it. Perhaps a little smoky, but not in a great way, almost an ashtray thing. Odd.

M: Medium light in body, very high carbonation.

O: Overall an odd little beer, a little off. I could see it appealing to a broader audience, but this one just isn't for me.
