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.

One of my favorites. Clear brown in color with a decent off-white head. Leaves pretty good lacing. Light aroma of sweet malt and maybe toffee. Taste-wise, it’s one of the smoothest beers all the way through. Sweet and nutty with absolutely no bitterness. Easy to drink and easy to enjoy.

Brown body and clean head. Very classic aroma, but not in the good sense I’m afraid. Grainy and simplistic, mass produced appeal. Taste is better, very drinkable and not without bitterness.

12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s. I don’t mind a brown ale, even a mass produced one. Unfortunately this one has a metallic bubble gum sort of sweet taste that I find nauseating. Oh well!

Dzhigga (185) - Kirov, RUSSIA - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle. Brown & reddish color with small unsteady head. Aroma is very thin, malty, with light notes of caramel. Taste is light sweet, malty. Watery texture. Very drinkable. Finish is short. Fine, but expected more.

Fin nok - et godt alternativ til en pilsner. Meget flot når den er hældt op i glasset. Sød smag...

StuartC (56) - Lochgilphead, Argyll, SCOTLAND - MAR 18, 2015
Bottle. Amber Brown, no head; Woody spice aroma with some raisin fruitiness; Light bodied and smooth; More sultanas on the palate, gingerbread also. In short, not the most flavourful beer ever, but very drinkable.

Pretty good for a commercial beer, some bitterness,nut aroma and flavours, so waterly and sessionable, drinkability is so easy. A good one for me, i try to find this one for a long timE. Maybe a summer beer, to be onest

33cl bottle. It has sweet, sugary smell and bronze colour. Soft Co2 and low foam (but lasting) describe this ale. Taste is very simple: too much sweet, caramel, maybe toffifee. Very little hop at the end. Too high price for a too sweet ale. :(
