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 bit bland, but otherwise quite good. Well-balanced bitterness coupled with the absence of a hoppy aftertaste make this smooth and easy to drink. Very good but not great. For a beer priced this high, a little more taste would be nice.

Blah, as brown ales are wont to be, but more blah than other brown ales. Newcastle is skunked about one fourth of the time, probably because of the clear bottle.

Does it get much better than this? One of the outstanding quality British beers, which is saying something.

Not too bad for a brown ale. Uhh something I’d buy again but not everynight.

I tried this beer expecting to hate it, but I was pleasantly surprised by it. The typical sweetish/bitterness of ales was quite subdued making it a good everyday drinking beer.

deep ruby-brown colour, nice head, caramel aroma, full and slightly nutty, lack of character - could well be the most overrated beer in the world
