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.

A acquired, nutty taste. I used to think it was great but since then have discovered worthier ales.

A nice light slightly malty tasting brew. A soft nutty flavor is apparent and the hops are subdued. A nice drinking beer for sessions.

You can definately taste the barley in this beer. An excellent ale for good times with excellent sompanionship, Newcastle is slightly infused with a grain-taste. Hops do not make this beer special; instead its full bodied yet remarkably smooth finish seem to impart a nutty flavor that I find hard to duplicate. A beautiful reddish gold tinge makes this beer appealing to look at. Excellent from the tap or by the bottle. An excellent Scottish ale, One of my favorites!!!

This is such a quality beer. Wonderful color, good aroma, delicious semi-sweet flavor with a nice dry finish.Aside from Guinness, this is my favorite beer of all time.

cranesareflying (50) - Evanston, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2002
Darker than pale ale, lightly malted, but I found the bottled flavor weak, dull, and disappointing, something I would call a background beverage.

Not as good as Bass, but also a decent brew on tap.

BillKismet (3355) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2002
Amber colored with little head and negligible aroma. Very smooth, refreshing ale, but little flavor character. Good for mass consumption, but doesn’t rate high on my scale.

hopshead (24) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 6, 2002
Not as bold as I expected. A pleasent yet rather weak flavor for an ale. With it’s light carbination it would be easy to pound down several of these in hot weather.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2004 Very little in taste, over carbonated, poor head retention little or no complexity.
