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.

Ihan helvetin tylsä ajanhaaskauskalja. Ei maistu eikä haise miltään. Paskaa. Multipaskaa.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2014 Archive Review:(5/21/14):Size: 12oz - Glassware: Nonic Pint -Aroma: light caramel maltiness, nuttiness, bready/cracker smell. -Appearance: Poured a brown color with some slight ruby red coloring at the edges, to go along with a white one finger head, that did not stay around long. Lacing was sticky at the top of the glass, but did not lace the entire glass. -Taste: light sweetness at the beginning, with a very very light bitterness at the finish.-Palate: Starts off soft in the beginning, turns watery in the middle, and at the end finishes with a very very light dry bitterness. -Overall: This beer is overpriced for what it is. There is no way six packs of this stuff should cost what they do in my area. It is very easy drinking and sessionable, probably due to its watery mouthfeel. I would not seek this out for everyday drinking. However, if its late at night, when all the craft beer stores are closed in my area, I would easily go to a local gas station, and pick a pint of this over any BMC product.

Pleasant taste and a nice colour. Somewhat thin texture, the finish could be more prominent. Aroma is not that complex.

On tap. Pours a nut brown color with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is carmel and malt. Taste is malt and carmel as well. Watery and thin on palate. Not very appealing. Try and find another option if possible.
