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.

Newcastle is the all around great beer for the times when you canít find a good microbrew. Always nutty and delicious. Good all around brew. I donít rate it too high only because it seems so common.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2007 I like it. Newcastle gets too much grief in my opinion, for what I think is a drinkable beer. Warm, roasty, carameley flavor, with a slightly watery finish being the only drawback. Comfort beer.

Maybe I just got a bad glass, but I didnít think much of it at all. It smelled and tasted more like an english strong ale than a brown ale, but even as an english strong it wasnít very good. No head, zero body, watery finish.

Weak head, aroma of caramel. Starts a bet weak, but finish with a long lasting flavor. Fresh and mild.

What a joy. Very drinkable and pleasing to the old taste buds. Can just imagine Shearer and Belamy sitting down in some antiquated pub with a pint of Brown and discussing their form.
