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.

Without a doubt, this beer has the greatest variance in quality. Sometimes it does deserve the mass of praise it gets, other times it barely passes as drinkable. On average, the nutty maltiness and slight presence of hops balance just right. There is not a whole lot of complexity to this brew, but that’s not the aim. Overall, I can’t complain but I can;t rave about it either. It is the benchmark for browns, whether you like it or not.

A very nice alternative when at the pub. When tired of Guinness I’ll often switch to good ole Newcy Brown. Quite sweet for a brown ale but with a pleasent nutty flavour.

Dark beer with training wheels. Slightly sweet, dominated by malts - but thats if you can taste the flavors. Very light when it comes to the flavor/palate/body department, just not impressed - weak taste.

Nut-brown. Neutral aroma. Caramell-ish toffee- flavour. Somewhat watery but still enjoy-able.

I always seem to give this one a benefit of a doubt, but I always am disappointed. Even off the tap in England and the bottle, it wasn’t any better. Just seems to be a very weak beer. Had a nice medium amber color to it, but just to light bodied and absent of distintive flavor for this style.

Really good with a steak or something like that. I think it loses out when many other good beer options are presented.

Definitely a weak beer. Pours no head whatsoever, rather transparent and virtually flavorless. Not worth buying at the price. I can’t believe anyone would even give it a decent rating. This is tops on my all-time most over-rated beers list.
