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.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2004 One of my early favorites that I've ignored for a long time. Not as full bodied or complex as most microbrewed brown ales but still does a good job. Sweet, nutty, fruity, lightly dry finish. Maybe it's not the great beer I thought it was in my pre-rate beer days but I have to admit to being pleasantly surprised by my latest tasting.

Good nut taste with a nice crisp flavor. A little skunk in the aroma. Very drinkable.

Newcastle is one of my favorite beers. Itís a great brown ale, a little bit pricey, butís it worth it. Very drinkable, very smooth and great to have any time of year.

Almost perfect for the style. Smooth, roasted nut flavor, beautiful appearance. Lovely ale.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2003 This is a decent beer. When I first took the plunge into the world of "real" beer, Newcastle's sweet flavors and hitherto untasted complexity proved the perfect bridge for my Budweiser-conditioned palate. From the tap, you get a plesantly malty, yet dry-enough brew, with warm, buttery notes.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 8/17/02 Draught: Same as the bottle yet not as good and too sweet and not so nutty...drinkable when there's nothing better though..not that that means anything to anyone...but if your gonna drink newcastle..drink it out of a bottle!
Re-Rate 8/26/02 draught: For some reason I found it to be better than the bottle this time, with a way more pronounced nuttiness..Who knows..I'll just say yeaH! whatever

There was almost no aroma from this brew, which surprised me, it was very drinkable with no aftertaste and there was tons of head and carbonation.

Good stuff. Not quite as malty as i expected from a brown ale, but just the right amount of hops. Great for drinking in large quantities.
