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 pretty good brown ale. Itís the easiest to find, which make it quite popular. I would normally go with Samuel Smithís, but itís harder to find. Good all around beer.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2003 A fruity, buttery nose that is slightly skunky. Light brown color. Malty taste that is buttery. Quick profile that ends in a slightly dry, but napkiny finish. I didnít like this and was disappointed.

A lot of users have commented that this one is overrated, and I have to concur. Iíve yet to be blown away by a brown ale. Overall impression: just slightly above average. Iíll go to a lot of beers before this one. Plus, the clear bottles donít help in preventing skunking.

Sweet malt aroma. Chestnut in colour, little head. Sweet, tiny bitterness. Watery. Ordinary.

Re-rate: had to lower the score because Iíve had a lot of better Brown Ales lately. A good beer, but not great. I like brown ales. Definitely better on draft than in those clear bottles.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 30, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2003 Clear brown in color, decent white head, malty and nutty aroma. starts sweet with a mild nutty flavor, very bland, body thin and watery, I think this brown ale is overated there are much better ones out there, I have had it more than a few times and dislike it more each time.
