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.

OK, so I haven’t quite figured out what the rave is all about. I’d prefer this beer to most American Beers on any given day, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to find this beer. Not much to say about this beer other than it represents a sterotypical light brown ale. I think this is a beer suited for my college buddies who are acquiring a taste for something better and more original than Bud Light. But its a soild, drinkable, and consistently good beer so I will rate it that way.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2003 Superb taste and excellent aroma. A good ale to drink with dinner, compliments many foods. Expensive, but well, well worth it. Strong flavor even after glass number 9!!! =) RERATE 01/09/03: I remember being way too drunk during my last rating. Good malty sweetness, nice head..not overwhelming, dryer than would be expected, and a nice ending bitterness.

Easy going sweet brown ale, not over-bearing, good choice if you plan on consuming a large quantity

Newcastle Brown Ale is a good standard brew. Finding it at many bars is a good deal because it is certainly better than most of the American beers.

Very average and predictable brown ale, although that’s not always a bad thing. Pretty head and clean finish.

Red amber ale. Virtually no aroma. Simple taste, quite smooth, watery; poor palate. Why do they export it?

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2004 RerateMust have finally gotten a fresh bottle - previously all have been skunked. Much thicker mouthfeel and chocolately flavor comes through. Much improved. Original 2.8 Rerate 1/06/03 - Very overrated mainsream Ale funky aroma - more noticeable in the bottle than on tap. Original Rating - 7/20/02 - 3.0 - A bit tinny and thin for my taste - no real mouth feel. Still a better pick than a Bud or Lite - but not enough flavor to make very memorable.
