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.

There was almost no aroma from this brew, which surprised me, it was very drinkable with no aftertaste and there was tons of head and carbonation.

Good stuff. Not quite as malty as i expected from a brown ale, but just the right amount of hops. Great for drinking in large quantities.

Light pasteurized and malty/nutty. Quick finish.

Pretty decent. About the purest brown color Iíve ever seen in a beer. Malty aroma. Pleasant hint of bitterness but not especially flavorful.

While not skunked, I was suspicious that the dusty aromas and flavors(coming through over the light malts) were products of the clear bottle. I enjoyed this years ago when I was not yet a snobbish beer drinker, but now it is thin, lacks complexity, and lacks interest.

The beer has really simple flavors and is sooo smooth. I think itís a really great beer to just relax and drink.

My previous rating was retarded. I keep the same rating, but change the comments because if I ever win something, they could use it against me... again, decent brown ale with nice nutty flavor, good malt, hop balance and slightly floral aroma. not bad.
