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.

Nice medium dark color, dense stout-like foam. Just not much happening in the flavor dept - not unpleasant but I expected more inspiration.

Re-Rate 12/20/02: Once again a beer I first sample some twenty years ago while in England, how great it was from the “Cask”, as my notes from that time state I was totally enamoured. Personally, I still like this ’Brown Ale’, are they’re better, ’yes’, but they’re many worse ones. The beer pours a nice limpid brown color, the head portly, the texture frothy; the lace left behind thick sheets to coat the class. Nutty sweet nose, caramel, with lots of malt, pleasing enough for me. Richly sweet at the start, top middling and the finish mildly acidic, patiently hopped and a nice dry malt aftertaste. Clean and satisfying, and a beer that is much better from the tap than the bottle.

Beautiful clear brown ale with good head and floral nose; goes down fast from there. Adequately bitter but unbalanced, not enough malt or caramel, too thin in the mouth.

Pleasant aroma and beautiful appearance. Complex flavour, can taste the hops. But I have to say overall it didn’t live up to the hype. I’ve kept on hearing about great this beer is supposed to be. Wild Rose Brown is a better choice.

Have had this beer so many times, I finally had it and remembered to review it. This redish brown colored brew has a smell I feel lack a lot, it is sort of a bland smell almost like the normal smell people associate with beer. But what is lacks in smell is "kind of" makes up for in taste. It has a smooth slight hop/slight malt taste that is not to overwhelming, I feel it is a good crossover beer. But it is one of those beer I drink when I am at a place that "lacks" in selection.
