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.

Classic example of the sytle. New-kee-brown has moved into the mainstream in London and is threatening to become trendy. Clear copper brown colour, with lots of roasted malt flavour its a lovely beer. Its low on gas and often makes for a safe drinking alternative if the bar is to trendy for good beer.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2003 Update, 8/18/03: Picked up a 550 mL bottle before a hike to celebrate with at the summit. This was a complete disaster. The clear bottle had been totally exposed to light and was COMPLETELY skunked. Now, I've had beer that tasted skunky before, but this reeked of it. Get rid of the clear bottles! Avoid this beer unless you know it's been kept in a dark place. Dark brown color reminds me of root beer. Pours to absolutely no head. Solid taste, but the best part is the multi-faceted aftertaste.

Brown/Copper body with a weak head. Quite sweet and has a caramel flavor. I get the feel that this is a candy bar. Do men eat candy bars on a Saturday evening?

This is one weak tasting Brown Ale, not near enough flavor or complexity. Just an average beer.

Smooth and decent taste but limited mouthfeel and not quite the taste for me.

This beer has a brown body - hue with a no initial flavor and a light body.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2003
30/3 draught: Sweet caramel aroma. Short lasting bubbly head, clear amber-brown liquid. Good lacing on glass. Sweet caramel flavour with a hint of bitter. Not well balanced, bit too sweet. Smooth body, though thin.

I just think it is a bit too watery, otherwise it is ok and the aftertaste is not that bad.

freekyp (1634) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - APR 3, 2003
Beautiful coppery body with medium-sized, mostly disipating head. Mild caramel nutty flavor with low hop bitterness. Decent brown, but too mild.

I really enjoy drinking this beer. Has a sweet chocolate/caramel taste and goes down extremely smooth.
