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.

Poured with a nice frothy head. Brown in color. Sweeter than I remember. I remember it being more nutty previously, but not this time.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2004 (update-on draught) Medium brown ale. Very litle head. Malt taste, a bit sweet. Very little hint of nuttiness. No skunkiness (which I had noted from the bottles, which are unfortunately clear).

desurfer (1245) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2003
UPDATED: APR 27, 2003 Poured a medium brown with little head. Nice sweet malt flavor with little hops evident. It was good, but I don't see why many people I know rave about this beer.

dberger624 (1028) - Phila, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2003
Had this on draft at the Grey Lodge in Phila. I most of the time find browns kinda boring ad this on fits the bill perfectly. Tasted like a beer.

I found it kinda normal and unexciting. Not bad to drink if someone has it but I won't buy it.

Cloying, annoying, brown but fit for destroying. Idiot lager louts give this beer its only bouying.

JK (4845) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - FEB 26, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2012 Light brown with a slightly tan head that disappears quickly. Doesn’t smell very good. A little sweet. 4/3/5/3/11 rerate: A long overdue rerate. I was too hard on this beer, years ago. It is a fine brown ale. Light malt and English yeast. Some caramel. OK palate, making it very drinkable. Really a gateway beer.

imdownthepub (11146) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2003
Bottled. Dark reddy brown colour, decent head. Nutty flavour but overall rather sweet and disappointing. Little of the alcohol is evident.

pwyman (71) - Hubert, North Carolina, USA - FEB 23, 2003
Dark amber color with a mild nutty flavor. A little stronger flavor would have made it better.

hayden1215 (321) - Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2003 On tap : Amber brown in color, nice creamy head with plenty of lacing. Sweet, nutty aroma. Somewhat wattery flavor and finish.
