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.

It’s a good beer, although I’m slightly disappointed. Very light bodied and mild in flavor. Maltiness and some hops emerge once the beer starts to warm up a bit. The color is indeed very pretty. Notes from second tasting: Do not have this ice cold, it will taste like water.. has to be at room temperature for flavors to emerge

VERY little aroma to speak of. Typical brown ale color. Large nut/coffee-ish flavor that goes down smooth. An OK beer.

Decent beer, but Piznilzer makes a significantly better nutty brown that doesn’t have the spoonful of brown suger in every bottle.

I too used to think this was the ’greatest beer’. But have grown older. Still beats 90% of the bottled swill on the market.

Thin head, brown color. Aroma is brown sugar. Taste is malty and slightly nutty with a smooth mouthfeel. Definitley overrated but better then the average.

Another beer made for the bar; could use more flavor and less funny after taste though.
