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.

Draught. Standard fare. Unimpressive head and aroma. Color is deep brown with a tinge of red. Taste is straightforward. Malty, nutty, hints of caramel and oak. Not a bad safety beer.

Tap at Union Jack's in Knoxville, TN. Deep brown pour with a little tan head. Roasted malty aroma, could improve a little. Watery taste. Not great but not bad. But I'm not the biggest fan of Brown Ales.

Decent overall for a brown ale. Brown color. Easy down and available everywhere.

TC2642 (265) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2003
Nutty, fruity esters in the nose. Looks like a brown ale. Quite a watery flavour and not much mouthfeel. Not much else to say really, dissapointing.

Though it doesn't stand out in any perticular area, this is one of my favorite session beers. Sometimes great, sometimes mediocre at best, "Newkie" is my go-to beer

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Pours light brown with little head. A malty aroma. Very watery mouthfeel. Bland flavor, a little sweet, alittle nut with almost no hop in the finish. Very little aftertaste. Very overrated.

Choos (711) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - DEC 5, 2003
Draught: Small amount of malt aroma. Clear brown appearance with fast diminishing head. Flavour was miniscule malt giving way to soda water. I didn't find any charm in this.

I've only had the bottle, but it seems a little uneven, as in sometimes it is good and sometimes not. It always seems to have a short lasting head, and is very thin in the mouth feel. Has this cidery flavor that I just don't care for. Not a bad beer, but I fail to see why so many people like it.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2005 Blah. Fairly boring. Really nutty flavor. I had it out of a bottle at a bar one night. I did not go back for a second one...
