British brewing company Newcastle does one thing spectacularly well: it makes an immensely drinkable British brown ale. But, like Guinness, it does it very, very well in the sort of way you’d come to expect from a macro-brewery.
Now, the company is experimenting with a lineup of season ales, in collaboration with Scottish brewery Caledonian (technically it’s more museum than brewery), which will be available for a limited time at select neighborhood pubs or stores throughout 2011 in a six-pack or 12-pack.
About Newcastle’s Limited Edition Ales:
Newcastle Summer Ale: Refreshing and light, this golden beer offers a subtle citrus hop aroma and a clean, refreshing flavor with a dry finish
Newcastle Werewolf: Naturally blood red in color, this distinct tasting fall ale produces a combination of sweet berry overtones and a sudden bite of bitterness
Newcastle Winter IPA: Zesty in character and jam-packed with a creamy finish, the Newcastle Winter IPA is full-bodied and hoppy, delivering unique and authentic malt flavors for the cold season and snowy matchdays
Newcastle Founder’s Ale: A rich ode to the heritage and the work of five of the best brewers in the city coming together to show off their craft, Founder’s Ale offers a full-bodied ale with a sweet and dry finish
Not sure it’s something I’d purchase regularly, but certainly seems worth trying.
