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 truly one of the Worldís best brews. It has a GREAT taste that doesnít tire on your taste buds. It is great with a meal or by itself. A real rich, good brew. Cheers

UPDATED: APR 1, 2005 On tap it is a HUGE step up from the bottled version, but it has no choice. The bottles taste like syrupy skunk urine. (Although Iíve never tried skunk urine).

I want to like it more than I do, since itís one of the first írealí beers I drank. Not nearly malty enough to be called a Brown Ale, itís got some flavor but always tastes like itís just missing the extra malt or hops to put it over the top. Also too watery texture-wise.

I am re-rating this beer because I havenít had it since my beginning days. Not as great as I remember, but a fairly decent brown. As for finding a better brown íAt the brewery down the streetí, Iíve tried quite a few of the browns from my area and this one still surpasses.

This is a fantastic beer. Off the tap, hardly anything beats it. Nice body and flavour, with a slightly tea-flavoured aftertaste.
