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.

12 oz bottle. One of my old favorites. Pours a brown yellow color w/o much head. Not much aroma to it, a slight nuttiness maybe. Mouthfeel was thin and dry. This is a thin uncomplicated brew. There is some slight caramel flavor as well as some nuttiness. Finish is thin, dry. This used to be a brew I considered exotic, but that was a long time ago. I still like it, but it seems pretty plain now. Compared to some of the other brews I’ve had.

라이트한 바디감. 밝은 구리빛. 예쁘다. 낮술에 어울린다. 첫맛과 향에서 약간의 산미를 느끼다가 맑은 느낌으로 마무리. 조밀조밀한 거품. 엿당의 맛과 향이 있다.

ALIBALI (535) - Kiel, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2016
Alles sehr verhalten. Die Optik typisch Industriebierstyle und für ein Brown Ale ausgesprochen hell. In der Nase geht nicht viel, maximal ein klein wenig röstig. Der Trunk deutet dann auf Hopfenkonzentrat hin, muß ja nicht schlecht sein, Vollmundigkeit würde ich aber anders definieren. Alles sehr lasch und fade. Habe ich früher ganz gerne getrunken, würde heute aber nur im Notfall drauf zurückgreifen. Probierschluck vom Stefan im STRONGBOWS Kiel.

330ml bottle served in a regular glass. Pours a clear nutty (amber to brown color) forming a medium light yellow creamy head with medium retention and some soapy lacings left. Nose is sweet. Strong notes of caramel and grassy and citrus hops. Some roasted and nutty hints. Taste follows the nose. Slightly sweet upfront. Very malty. Strong notes of caramel malts and some hints of roasted malts and nuts. Medium bitterness. Grassy and citrus hops profile. Medium drinkability. Not bad. (BA Review @ 5/6/2014)
