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.

Ah yes, Newcastle. One of my old school favorites. A very light brown ale, has a start that hits your taste buds right from the get go and you will either love it or hate it. Either way you will hate the aftertaste.

Medium brown. Small head that dissapears pretty quickly. The start and the middle of the taste is OK, but the aftertaste is not that great. A bit watery. Conclusion: OK - but very anonymous bear.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2003 RE-RATE: No change in scores, just some more comments. Now that I've had several brown ales, I am better suited to comment on this one. Though I'd still take Abita over this, it has a really cool nutty flavor that I can better appreciate now.

I'm somewhat surprised at how easy this is to find. I'm also fairly surprised that for a beer that tastes so good in your mouth it tastes so bad after it's gone down your throat.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 12, 2003
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.

Great supermarket beer. Smooth, great finish. Sweet, honey, nice aroma.
