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.

My previous rating was retarded. I keep the same rating, but change the comments because if I ever win something, they could use it against me... again, decent brown ale with nice nutty flavor, good malt, hop balance and slightly floral aroma. not bad.

Light ruddy brown. White head dissipates quickly. Aromas of toffee/burnt sugar. Over carbonated, light bodied, caramel, bland and watery. This is great stuff...it makes me sad when people say that newcastle is a "good" beer, and it tastes "good". It doesnt taste like anything.

One of my favorite beers out there. I have even been able to convert the typical "Budweiser crowd" into lovingthis fine ale. I think this beer should be readily available everywhere!

Tap. Deep brown with a ruby highlight. A chocolate malt aroma and flavor with lots of carbonation. Better than the bottles.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2003 Excellent smell of syrup and toast. Intriguing flavour with a sour aftertaste. Rich colour.

An ex-girlfriend turned me on to this beer. (It was the only worthwhile thing she did during the relationship)Its good out of the bottle, better out of the keg. I prefer my Black & Tans with a Newcastle bottom.
