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.

yespr (30689) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2008
50 cL can. Pours clear hazzlenut brown with a huge slowly collapsing off-white head. Malty, mild caramel and slight hoppy aroma. Slight butterish flavour, mild sweetend, light liqourice note and light roasted note. Ends with a light off note from the malt and with a subdued bitterness. Decent.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2003
A brown beer with a foamy fast disappearing head. The aroma is light and that of malt - nice. The flavor is watery with hints of sweetness and malt and ending on a slight bitterness - but best description = Watery!

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Dark, nutty colour with a fairly decent white head. Soft and smooth mouthfeel, but a bit flat. Light body with notes of malt and not much bitterness. Leaves a weird stickyness on the palate. 070700

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 11, 2005
Tapped. Dark copperbrown colour, decent white bubbly/foamy head. Citric barley aroma with a bit of redwine in it too. Wellbalanced, a bit too much carbonation. Flavour is sweet citrus and barley with small hints of malt and bitterness in the aftertaste.

omhper (19194) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2002
Nut brown, smallish head. Rather sweet, somewhat nutty, medium bodied, rather low bittterness. Not very complex, but for a massproduced beer it is not bad.

fiulijn (14298) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2002
Red amber ale. Virtually no aroma. Simple taste, quite smooth, watery; poor palate. Why do they export it?
