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 have always liked Newcastle. Although since I moved to Colorado, and then got corrupted by Ratebeer.com, I have found better beers, I am sticking to my original rating for both bottles and draught. Plus I can get it on tap at my local dive bar for $1.50 every day from 3-6pm.

Strong brown sugar aroma. Taste & texture is very light & watery. Only slight bitterness. Too weak for me, smells good tastes poor, definitely overrated

Yes, I agree this is the one and only. This is very good. Did I mention it is as smooth as a babies behind. The only better is the brown ale I brew myself at home.

Smooth and mild bitterness flavour, not too bad.

Like an intro to Brown Ales for the macro drinkers. I laugh that someone called this "Trendy", hell it was trendy over 20 years ago! This was one of my first non yellow fizzys so it’s a sentimental favorite. Rather easy to find too.

My favorite beer. It’s different from other ales I tasted.

Big head fades down to a quarter inch bubbly layer. The body is reddish brown. Smells of slight chocolate and rock-candy sweetness. More chocolate with a strong helping of maple syrup flavor on the tongue. I’d much rater have a petes. Oh and I agree with some others who wrote about this beer. Newcastle gives hangovers every time I partake of it. Usually bad headaches.

One of my traditional widely available favorites. Super dark red color and stellar head. Smooth taste without any extremes; just a nice little aftertaste.
