This pours a very clear and bright golden color with a thick long lived head that settles slowly leaving a thin head down the sides of the glass.

The nose is classic Newcastle spiced hops with a a nice bready and malty undertone.

The taste is rather dry and crisp, this subdues the strong malt with a nice hop bitter that almost reminds me of a stronger Old Speckled Hen. The taste has notes of breadiness that balances well with the dryness.

The moutfeel is just right.

Overall this is extremely drinkable and enjoyable, another one I highly recommend.
