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.

Besides being a decent brew I think the most attractive part about it is the fact that it still tastes semigood when warm.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2004 Not as great as it's made out to be. Not very smooth, bad odor, kinda skunky.

Perhaps sentimental reasons have pushed me into rating this a bit higher than I should. OH well. The big bottles are great, allowing poor students to nurse one all night. As the beer warms it gets a bit nuttier and more fun.

A solid beer. My first brown ale, and one that left me craving more. Very, very smooth taste, but a strangeness in the flavor that I canít really describe... but hell, Iíll buy it again.

Doesnít taste as dark as it appears. Very smooth, in fact after a few it starts to taste like cream soda

Iíve had much better browns that werenít as expensive. If Newcastle is all you know about Browns then take another look around. It gets better.
