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.

This is one of the most variable beers that I’ve ever seen. Sometimes almost like alt -- grainy/cherry flavored. Sometimes not. Aroma is slightly laced with sulphur. Aroma and flavor are grassy, grainy. Perhaps a wee bit smokey. Wisps of berry flavor. Thinnish palate, but smooth, smooth. Clean drinking and decent brown ale. This is often the best thing that you can get, and it’s a better choice than American mass-production stuff. Beware the clear bottle, because you’ll occasionally get a real skunky six.

NOt as good as on tap. Some nice balance in the malt and haps. Not too bitter. Smooth, but not excedingly so.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2002
I have always liked Newcastle. Although since I moved to Colorado, and then got corrupted by Ratebeer.com, I have found better beers, I am sticking to my original rating for both bottles and draught. Plus I can get it on tap at my local dive bar for $1.50 every day from 3-6pm.

Strong brown sugar aroma. Taste & texture is very light & watery. Only slight bitterness. Too weak for me, smells good tastes poor, definitely overrated

Yes, I agree this is the one and only. This is very good. Did I mention it is as smooth as a babies behind. The only better is the brown ale I brew myself at home.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2004 Very easy to drink. Smooth taste with bittersweet finish. Nice beer.

Like an intro to Brown Ales for the macro drinkers. I laugh that someone called this "Trendy", hell it was trendy over 20 years ago! This was one of my first non yellow fizzys so it’s a sentimental favorite. Rather easy to find too.

My favorite beer. It’s different from other ales I tasted.
