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: 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.

I’m always surprised how light-bodied and easy drinking this ale is. It poured a huge, creamy, thick head that lasted all the way to the bottom of the glass. Nice mild roasted flavor, and a perfectly clean finish. I have yet to be at a bar that does not serve Newcastle Brown Ale. It is my usual order when the only other possibilities are American Standards.

A pleasant ale with a bit of a nutty aftertaste. A decent drinking beer for all occassions.

A nice brown ale although it could use a little more flavor/body.

Smelled great, looked great, and it was definately drinkable, although I wasn’t really impressed with the flavor. My sample could have been colder, though.

This is probably my favorite ’grocery store beer.’ Widely available and quite good.

Lacks any real flavour, mostly tastes of crystal malt (caramel) no hop flavour, low bitterness, medium/light body. Still, preferable to the usual draught selection.

One of my favorite beers. It’s even good warm.

One of the better mass-produced beers. The aftertaste is very aromatic and bitter. Nice brown colour and a nutty smell.

Pretty decent for a mass-produced beer -- full-bodied and flavorful.
