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.

Mild aroma, smooth taste, but a bit tarte on the palate.

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 can’t really describe... but hell, I’ll buy it again.

Doesn’t taste as dark as it appears. Very smooth, in fact after a few it starts to taste like cream soda

I’ve had much better browns that weren’t as expensive. If Newcastle is all you know about Browns then take another look around. It gets better.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2004 Bottled. Bland, boring, poor, lacking in flavour, watery, unpleasent. All these are words that describe this incredibly overrated beer. Quite how this has the reputation it does is beyond me.

Scores well for the reason that you get a pint in a bottle - fantastic! Not as good as i remember it being, but whenever i have it, I always enjoy it.

Very smooth. Great taste. Nothing to complain about here. Has a nice finish that has you wanting more. This is one of my favorites.
