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.

Clear medium brown, white head, quickly diminishing to minimal lacing. Aroma seemed a bit off, slightly skunky (maybe my bottle was light-struck?). Flavor was pretty bland, slightly sweet, slightly nutty. Very thin feeling, and it left an unpleasant aftertaste.

an amber-y pour with a sweet taste. kinda thin, not a lot of hop, but not a bad beer. something you can definitely drink all night.

elsberry (87) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 10, 2003
Good color, nicely put together. A bit of a chocolate flavor. Somewhat watery for a brown ale. Itís not a bad beer, just not a great beer.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 10, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2003 Pours a nice brown color with little head. Aroma is nice, but nothing stands out too much. Flavor is bland for a brown. Not too bad to drink, but there are others far better.

Perhaps at the mercy of mass distribution or pub beer lines, this beer has at turns been to me unpleasantly sweet, bland and insipid, vile and noxious, and, rarely, a pleasant, nutty experience. Taken as a whole, my experience of NBA is a poor one, hence my ratings.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2006 I have only ever had 1 decent pint of this. It always seems to have a heavy tinny metallic flavor,

Fine taste. Strangely warming even when chilled. Good bottled alternative in the pub if fed up of bottled lagers. Best drunk by topping up small glass though.
