Whay eye man, If Gascoine had a functioning liver and the ability to drink anything other than Windolene he would definately have a gander at this Ale!! picked up from the off licence at a pleasant 80p a bottle this beer is dynamite. Having been a Newcastle brown drinker ale for many a year im always a wee bit sceptical when a new product is launched however this beauty has suprised me!!
Taste: old school ale'y, like kissing the local tramp early on a friday night( before the abuse of the calpol ha kicked in!)
Head: Its in a dark bottle and you naye payed the electric bill so who cares!
Knock out power: Had 9 can still see so better than that foreign pish nay as good as the shoe polish!!
A real bleedin corcker!!!

Poured from a bottle.
Nice fresh aroma. Light amber clear liquid with generous white head.
Extremely well-balanced pale ale. Excellent pairing of hops and malt, just the right amount of each. A tinge of pineapple. Some grainy notes. A little bit of herbs.
Smooth finish. Nice light-to-medium mouthfeel.
Overall, a great session beer and a nice change of pace. I've had a lot of hop and malt monsters lately so I enjoyed something that was more easy going but still tasty and definitely balanced.

I'm a rookie to their seasonal lineup except fro the summer which wasn't too bad. This was a super fresh English pale less than 5% abv sure no problem. Pours a copper amber hue with a bright slightly off whtie head forms thick and dwindles slow leaves behind speckled lacing. Aroma earthy citrus hops intertwined with fruit malts and hints of caramel a really good finesse beer. It's not in your face but each sniff and sip draws you in further. Basically compare full blown hardcore porn (American pale ale) to a burlesque show where you may get a peek at some leg with a garter on. One leaves much more to the imagination and makes your senses work harder to acheive the same result. Flavor wise caramel malt with a slight tart sourdough bread note and a quick fleeting hop note earthy/citrus thus far. "A blighty good brew", okay it's good... not world class pale nice earthy tones arise within the caramel/citrus combo finishing balanced with more hops arising the more you take a deep inhalation. The nose has a really nice hop character and it brings out more of the hoppiness with each sniff. Mouthfeel as a whole medium bodied even carbonation, pretty effortless to drink and consume at least a few bottles in a session. Like I said it's not instant beergasm but eventually it gets you to the point of beervana, but it's an experience to sip and session with.

Taste - Very pleasant to drink. Some hop crispness but its well balanced and well made pale ale. Some grainy taste in the finish as well.
Mouthfeel - fine
Overall - A nice pale ale that is easy to drink, provides pleanty of flavor and well balanced. Another good beer from the UK.

This is the best Newcastle product I've had.
White head with a copper body. Very nice lacing on it.
Strong smell of hops and citrus.
The first thing I taste is a strong hops flavor with a crisp citrus taste at the end.
Medium carbonation with a clean, crisp, dry and refreshing finish.
Definately a good Pale Ale.
