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’ve probably had a keg of this stuff over the years. Nice flavor without any bitter taste or distractions on the palate (if thats what your in the mood for).

Somewhat flavorful, but a little weaker than I like em. Not much carbonation. 4.7% alcohol? I thought an ale was supposed to have at minimum 5%? (which is still very weak) Oh well. This one is very refreshing, but definately not a winter warmer. No head to speak of. Overpriced. Too bitter!

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2003 Not that bad, but nothing special. I think it's over-rated. It's just an average brown ale.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2003 Although not my top rated beer, probably the beer I have drank the most in the past and still a favorite when nothing better is available. The color is a dark amber brown topped with a thick head. The aroma is slightly sweet and malty with a hint of hops. The flavor is a well balanced sweet malt flavor with a slightly hoppy finish.

Had this beer for the first time in a restaurant. Taste is smooth. Wouldn’t buy this on a regular basis, though.

Nothings special here. I expected more to be honest but with little flavor and little boldness it was just pretty flat like the head on the beer.
