Newcastle "Summer Ale"
Golden Ale/Blond Ale (ABV 4.4%)

[Best served in an English pint]

Rating: 2.9/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 10/20

Poured a sparkling light orange with an average size white frothy head that was mostly lasting and had good lacing. The aroma was nice and crisp of a nutty caramel malt, floral hops and an earthy yeast. It tasted a slightly sweet, a little acidic and mildly bitter from start to finish with a slight malty feel at the end. The flavor had a short duration although it did leave a nice light hoppy flavor lingering for quite a while. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery yet dry in texture with a nice fizzy carbonation. Overall a tasty ale with a nice light hoppy aftertaste.
