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.

Nice Brown Ale. A little flat for my liking and the flavour became somewhat boring after half the glass was empty. Smell was pretty good though.

Verne (263) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - JAN 22, 2003
Ultra smooth, mild malt and no hops. Thirst quenching a very good beer on a hot dry day but a bit boring

As I pour it into my glass, the first thing I notice is the nice brown color, just as it should be for this style beer. There’s not much of an aroma, maybe just a subtle hint of hops. It has a mild smooth flavor, with a minimal aftertaste and a bit of sweetness from the malt. This is a pretty good beer, but somewhat boring flavor-wise. Very drinkable, though.

Ungstrup (29957) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2003
A brown beer with a foamy fast disappearing head. The aroma is light and that of malt - nice. The flavor is watery with hints of sweetness and malt and ending on a slight bitterness - but best description = Watery!

Not bad, but not really much to it. Seemed pretty watered down at the beginning and end, with something nutty in the middle.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2003 "Muddy water" to the uninitiated, but seriously not too bad, mild malty character, deep bronze colour with a small head, some woody and nutty notes, quite rich, peculiar aftertaste

Ah yes, Newcastle. One of my old school favorites. A very light brown ale, has a start that hits your taste buds right from the get go and you will either love it or hate it. Either way you will hate the aftertaste.

Medium brown. Small head that dissapears pretty quickly. The start and the middle of the taste is OK, but the aftertaste is not that great. A bit watery. Conclusion: OK - but very anonymous bear.
