Can't tell whether this is a pale ale or a brown ale. Brown in color, solid one inch of head on it though. Aroma didn't hit those dry hop notes they advertised. Disappointing to come across something like Burton yeast and soggy cardboard instead.

Taste was mild sweetness. No bitterness or hop flavors. Something non offensive to have in the fridge for not beer geeks to check out.

l - pale with minimal head
S - Like burnt plastic
T - Like burnt plastic, residual malt sweetness, and adjuncts.
F- Very light, almost watery.
O - This is the only 6-pack that I've ever bought where I couldn't finish it. I have a couple full bottles as a display for this, hopefully, one-time adventure from Newcastle.
