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.

Overrated. The clear bottles and the trip over the Atlantic donít help much.

Light brown colour w/ soft, caramelly head. Slight fruitiness in the aroma. Medium-light body. Not overly flavorful but a moderate sweetness w/ nutty, winish notes. Is this beer over-rated? Certainly. But all in all not a bad brew.

An average beer. Not much that can be said about it that hasnít been said before.

On tap, Paddington Ale House Perth
Served too cold but when it warmed up was probably a touch better than in the bottle. Also picks up an extra Overall point because of cool live band playing at the time (ie my sons funk-rock band)
First rating April 23 2002 This beer brings back many memories than it has taste. I canít understand why the one I have in Newcastle last month tasted so much better than this one (in Belgium)?

Itís all over the place at a premium price, so it must be great, right? Itís not. Itís OK. I canít even pick out anything worth commenting on. Anyway, there are too many other options at this price to drink any more of this.

Pours with average carbonation and medium sized head. Aroma is somewhat neutral with hints of caramel. Flavor is slightly grainy and slightly malty. Very drinkable.
