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.

Pours a nice dark brown with a white 2 finger head. Aroma of sweet caramel. Nutty and caramel flavor with a slight bitterness. Solid beer overall, good session beer.

Hard to find anything positive to say about this one. Mouthfeel might be the best quality if one had to be chosen. The Bud Light of English beers?

Bottle. I love a brown ale, even a mass produced one. Brown ale with a decent head. Metallic and nutty with a bit of caramel and tea. Watery, but suits it. Classic.

I use to treat myself to this little brew in my younger days to get me started before get loaded on lesser crap. Has a nice medium caramel tasting body with some toffee in there. Just a little tad of bitterness near the end. Give to someone who has only know lager in their life and they would probably love this little kick of flavour.

Middle of the road beer that is one I will somehow resort to at weddings if I want to make myself known as a beer drinker who doesn’t necessarily want to drink BMC. A brown ale I can drink and enjoy to some degree.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2014 Beautiful and a pretty nice beer. Tastes very crisp with some loaf. Slight bitterness in the finish.

Botella de 55 cl de el c. Ingles, tomada en septiembre de 2007. lote 0105816 hasta 31-01-2008. cuerpo ligero con 4.7 vol para una cerveza sin muchos recuerdos de interés. Normal.

18.6 FL. OZ ($3.49) First time I ever had this. don’t let its dark color fool you its just like a light lager. super watery and way overpriced, if this is what England drinks than they seriously need to step on over to Germany. if you’re looking at this in the store and have just read this far PASS, spend the .44c more and get a widmer brothers alchemy ale.
