Newcastle British Session IPA reviewed by Brandon C. Hovey

Beer: Newcastle British Session IPA

Brewery: Heineken

Beer Style: English IPA

Country of Origin: UK

Serving Method: 12 oz bottle poured int 312 pilsner glass

Abv: 5.1%

Background: This is the last English beer I have in my possession that I’m trying. I’m eager to enjoy this. It is an English style IPA.

Taste & Aroma: The first smell that hit my nose was bready malt. This is a nice earthy start to a basic but excellent beer. The taste is a dry malt with a hop bite at the finish. The hops here are English: deep, dry, and a tad fruity. This is an IPA that is more refreshing that what you would expect from Heineken.

Final Analysis: This is a decent beer to near the tail end of the British beer tour I’ve been on. I would say I’ll try five or six more of these beers from that green and pleasant land and then I’ll switch to beers of a different sort.
