Pretty boring brew, not at all what I suspected from Newcastle or from the description in the bottle. It tastes not like a winter ale nor an IPA.

A good smell upon open and pouring, with a nice copper color. After that, it's just pretty boring.

Not a bad brew, just boring. A good session brew, but pretty average in taste.

The Newcastle Winter IPA was actually surprisingly decent. I didn't have high expectations going in, but it was rather enjoyable. Poured it from bottle to glass, it had an amber (almost orange-ish) color to it with a frothy head. Didn't get much from the smell. Malty, caramel flavor. Light hop bitterness. Warm, wintery flavors - sort've what you'd expect from an American IPA. Probably isn't the best out there - doesn't match up to Celebration, for example - but nevertheless, it's not a bad choice if it's the only option available and you're feeling festive.
