Newcastle Summer Ale

CIMG6190

You know the famous Newcastle Brown, but they have a few other “limited” release beers including this Summer seasonal. It’s considered an English Bitter on BA, but might be more in line with a golden ale.

Stats:
Golden Ale. 4.4% ABV. Scotland. Summer Seasonal.

Light orange in color. Head fades very quickly.

Just a grainy, malty nose. Not much else going on there.

Mouthfeel is light bodied and highly carbonated, a little better than I was expecting though.

Light stone fruits meet a grainy malt flavor. Decent hop bitterness on the finish. Leaves a light herbal, spicey flavor on the finish.

This beer will not blow your mind, but it’s exactly what you want on a hot Summer day. I’d say it’s worth a purchase. 83 points.
