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.

A nice mild easy drinking ale. slighly sweet nutty malt flavour accented with chocolate and caramel. there are better browns available but this is a decent beer for a mass produced ale.

A friend of mine couldn’t stand it, he said it was vingeary. Boy he was wrong, it just tasted like a good, old fashioned beer. A little watery at first, but not too bad at all. A good change of pace.

I always enjoy a newcastle. I feel it is slightly smoother and creamier on tap, but still a very strong brown ale out of the bottle. Had this one recently in New Orleans after a ’Hurricane’ and remembered why I like beer so much better than mixed fruit drinks.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2003 The first dark ale I could for sure pick out in a blind-fold test. Anyway, I enjoyed my glass. How about you?

Excellent brown ale. Edges out Goose Island’s brown by a nose. Extremely mild and drinkable. Not hoppy at all! A touch nutty (but just a hint). This is a slightly thin brown to sip without contemplation. I’m a big fan of it, as it’s my session brown ale.

Very interesting slight cinnamon nose. Surprisingly not very hoppy, nice brown color, rather smooth for an ale, with a slight sweetness. Much better IMO than Boddington’s, and a pretty good ale overall.

This is a horrible tasting beer.
