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.

Not one of my favorite brown ales, but I’ve had much worse. Very nice aroma that is kind of malty and sweet. I find this one best with a lot of starchy foods, otherwise I tend to avoid it. But that’s just me.

I was a bit disappointed in this. Rapidly vanishing small head, and a bit lacking in body and flavour. At least it is not offensive.

Nice ale, I would agree that this is not one for a binge. Better served colder than most ales I feel.

Thick, quickly disappating head. Faint floral/malt aroma. A bit filling for a beer so crisp tasting. Very light flavored with the hops overshadowing the malt as is typical in northern brown. Completely inoffensive and unremarkable.

When it’s good, it’s excellent; nice malty flavor, not too much in the way of hops but that’s excusable. Sometimes the quality varies; I’ve had sour bottles, but recently it’s all been excellent. The new aluminum cans are a good idea, even though usually cans (except for pseudo-draft) are anathema to ale brewers...

A nice brown ale. A good taste for a night of lounging and not binging.

A pretty good brown ale. It’s the easiest to find, which make it quite popular. I would normally go with Samuel Smith’s, but it’s harder to find. Good all around beer.

One of my favorites.Got to have it on draft though.Rich brown color.Malty and sweet.Very easy drinking.

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 didn’t like this and was disappointed.
