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.

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 (137) - 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.

Közepes hab, de sokáig kitart. A színe gyönyörű, bronzvörösbe hajló barna. Illata nem túl intenzív, aszalt gyümölcsös, földes. Íze icipici keserűvel és kicsi karamellel indít, majd aszaltgyümölcsös aromák törnek elő, a korty vége pezsgős hatású, pedig alig szénsavas. Utóíze elején előbukkan némi kandis cukros beütés, de ez hamar el is tűnik, és csak egy pici gyümölcsös savanykásság marad, jelzés értékű keserűvel. Nem is lenne ez olyan rossz sör, ha picit intenzívebb lenne. Így viszont csak a lehetőség van benne. Közepesen testes.

At a shitty bar drinking Newcastle amber lager. Fuck this...it’s ’drinkable’ but barely.

Ritzn (375) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2016
Red brown clear with little white head. Aroma of tanines and red apple peel. Also some lemon. Taste is more tanines and a little sourness. Sadly it is quite waterywith only some strange medium carbonation. No finish. Overall drinkable but nothing special.

Bottles. Has a small malty smell. The palate is soft and watery. The taste is a little nutty. Sweet cereal malts. Not very good.
