look: 4.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Appearance: Pours a deep, ruby-brown body with excellent clarity and a tall, foaming, sand dollar-colored head.

Smell: Nutty, toasty malts with a soured rye accent, followed by berry skins, moistened cardboard, clothes one forgot to remove from the washer and place in the drier. I'm rather stymied here, folks.

Taste: Regular Newcastle with a bit more nutty, toasty, scantly roasty with an oddly harsh astringent quality hitting fairly fast. Curious dried berry taste lurking in there, as are some metallic offerings, some corrugated paper board. Slight bitterness, but then there's that questionable fruitiness, a bit of table sugar on the tongue, then the crackly carbonation comes and rescrambles the mish-mash of dumpy tastes all over the tongue. Ick.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: Well, I wasn't expecting much at all, merely hoping for something drinkable, like the bland standard-issue Newcastle, but this is actually quite unpleasant. I didn't even finish it!
