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.

good beer, but it tastes as if there are a lot of chemical ingrediences in it.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2004 Pretty tasty. Among Canadians, this is actually considered "posh," probably because of the name. But it's a decent, average ale, a bit of nutty sweetness and great colour. Tastes "brown," although a bit cheesy at times. I had it kinda warm, I think I would've liked it colder.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2005 Tried this again in a restaurant, this time I drank out of the bottle (those restaurant glasses are nasty!). Malty, fresh aroma. Nice malt/hop balance in the flavor. A bit of alcohol noticed in the aftertaste, but nothing overpowering. Slight candy-ish feel to it, but overall good feel and finish. Decent.

One of the few dissapointments Iíve ever had in a British brew. Itís beautiful to look at, but the flavor is nothing special (for an Englsih brew) and the body is non-existent! The specific gravity of this stuff must be 1.0001. Not recommended from here.

leaparsons (7926) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2012 Rerate- rubbery and pretty thin. Canít believe i rated this highly before. Prev 3.3 - THE beer of the NE of England. Always served too cold as per the suggestion on the label. Shame, because the chill disguises the nutty taste. And, served (almost) by the imperial pint.

iíve only had this beer on draught, and I must say, I really like it. It is a bit light, but goes real well with a meal because of that.

A storied beer with aunique history. Unfortunately, it is rather bland

This beer is insipid, why do people enjoy this so much.

Iíve tried this twice, and been disappointed both times. Perhaps itís the clear glass that skunks it, or comparison to much fresher brown ales from closer to home, but the high ratings I see here mystify me. Maybe Iíve gotten hold of some old, light exposed ones. Iíd like to try it again under favorable circumstances, but I wonít buy it in a store again.
