Newcastle Brown Ale was first brewed in 1927 in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England, by Jim Porter after three years of development. Production moved from Newcastle to Gateshead at the end of 2004 and to Tadcaster on closure of the Dunston brewery in 2010.

Alles sehr verhalten. Die Optik typisch Industriebierstyle und für ein Brown Ale ausgesprochen hell. In der Nase geht nicht viel, maximal ein klein wenig röstig. Der Trunk deutet dann auf Hopfenkonzentrat hin, muß ja nicht schlecht sein, Vollmundigkeit würde ich aber anders definieren. Alles sehr lasch und fade. Habe ich früher ganz gerne getrunken, würde heute aber nur im Notfall drauf zurückgreifen. Probierschluck vom Stefan im STRONGBOWS Kiel.

eduardovl (1359) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 30, 2016
330ml bottle served in a regular glass. Pours a clear nutty (amber to brown color) forming a medium light yellow creamy head with medium retention and some soapy lacings left. Nose is sweet. Strong notes of caramel and grassy and citrus hops. Some roasted and nutty hints. Taste follows the nose. Slightly sweet upfront. Very malty. Strong notes of caramel malts and some hints of roasted malts and nuts. Medium bitterness. Grassy and citrus hops profile. Medium drinkability. Not bad. (BA Review @ 5/6/2014)

Colour is deep reddish brown, almost nonexistent head. Minus for the added colourant. Aroma is sweet and nutty with some dried fruits. Tastewise the beer is mild and little bit malty. Some caramel. Finish is short and bitter. Overall pretty average brown ale.

Maersk (171) - MOLDOVA - JUN 23, 2016
On tap. Brown color, small creamy head. Smells caramel, candy and some citrus notes. Watery body, lots of malt in the taste and this is pretty much it. Disappointing.
