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 a bad ale. Rich brown color, had a distinctive nutty flavour. enjoyable and refreshing. I just wish it had a little more kick.

I found this ale to be quite enjoyable. It is a sit-down -with- your- friends-and-grab-a-burger-beer. It has a mild and rich taste with a minute after bite. Very pleasurable.

Not impressed with this watered down so called ale. Where is the taste???

One of the first really good beers I ever had. ’The one and only’ my older and once wiser beer-drinking friend would say. Not a deep complex beer but a good rounded nutty, malty flavor that is easy to sink in to. Just as easy as it is to drink a case of.

One of the best beers that you’ll find widely available, both at liquor stores and restaurants/bars. It’s my go-to beer when nothing else available sounds interesting.

Very clean, not complex at all. Great nutty aftertaste. Could be better, but its got potential. Nice juice.

Dawghouse Brewers99 (91) - Exeter, California, USA - JAN 22, 2002
Light brown beer with a beige head. Malty, nutty flavor though some buttery notes finishing on the bitter side. Some diacytl notes apparrent.

Im not a brown ale fan, this one is about average though. Very smooth, nice head. Sorta flat tasting, not very distinctive.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2004 Re-Rate: As my beer palate has changed, so has my perception of this beer. I still like it but it does not measure up to many of the beers I have tried. Original Rating:One of my favorite beers. Great color and texture with a smooth flavor.
