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.

I used to love this beer. It has a nice brown color. It has hints of caramel and a nutty flavor. It's way too thin. It needs to be a little more heavy. I can't drink it anymore. Last time I had it I though, "Oh my god! Hairspray!"

A better beer than you can get in most places. Still, it doesn't compare to a good IPA or chocolate stout.

Reddish brown color and dissipating head. Faint hoppy aroma with a nutty/malty flavor and a hint of caramel. Pretty good, but a little too thin.

The best brown ale I have had. Especially good on tap where the spice enhances the bitterness. Unlike most other brown's this beer does not have an aftertaste, which again makes it a superior brown.

Nice Brown Ale. A little flat for my liking and the flavour became somewhat boring after half the glass was empty. Smell was pretty good though.

Ultra smooth, mild malt and no hops. Thirst quenching a very good beer on a hot dry day but a bit boring

As I pour it into my glass, the first thing I notice is the nice brown color, just as it should be for this style beer. There’s not much of an aroma, maybe just a subtle hint of hops. It has a mild smooth flavor, with a minimal aftertaste and a bit of sweetness from the malt. This is a pretty good beer, but somewhat boring flavor-wise. Very drinkable, though.
