COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available filtered and pasteurised in keg and bottle.
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.

I always found newcastle brown to be kind of skanky. The smell is kind of like every bad pub floor and the taste is almost like licking old boots. Still at least it has some character and a taste could probably be developed over time.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2004 Very nice rich clour with a genuine ale aroma. Full flavoured, a little sweet but not too much. Not much carbonation but makes up for it by being ultra smooth. Is not too overpowering and is very pleasant to drink. Very refined and has a very dintinct individual flowery, nutty flavour. There is a lot in this beer to taste, every time there is more to experience as you cant judge properly with one tasting. The most pleasant beer on the market. I could drink yards of it.

Nice caramel color. The flavor is malty, sweet, and nutty, with some caramel in there. Light on the hops. It's very smooth & easy to drink in a hurry. A pretty good beer.

Nice beer. Very smooth. Not bitter. But VERY expensive. Not worth it on a regular basis.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2003 For the comercially marketed beer it is one of the better. Not bitter at all with a nutty taste. Not up to par with most other belgian ales such as Belhavens or a dozen others but pretty good none the less for a commercial beer.

Simple, one dimensional beer, but pleasent and easy to drink. Thie beers popularity is easy to understand, as this beer has a good flavor and does not require the imbiber to think too much. Aroma is malty sweet with a little bit of roasted nuts. Beer pours reddish amber brown with off white head that mostly diminishes. The flavor follows the aroma, malty sweet, rather one-dimensional. I must say the one dimensional malty sweetness is well done and the beer is extremely quaffable.

Tastes as if you mixed 1 part budweiser and 1 part some good nut brown. I know this sounds odd but it was what I tasted all the way through. Its very good if its all thats at the bar or bad liquor store but there are many better browns out there. The finish and the after taste are the best part of the beer, this is where the nice nut brown taste comes through.

It is a nice looking ale with a creamy head that lasts. An ale that is not to bitter or sweet, balanced. A good drop. cheers 'Ahm just gan doon the rood to tak the dog for a walk.'
