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.

caramel red color. small head. smells like cigarettes. flavor, ashy, caramel, oranges and brown malt. yeast lends a resin sugar sweetness.

Pours dark amber with a small head that recedes. Malt and some skunkiness on the nose. Taste is malt and grain with an element that’s difficult to define but is a definite characteristic of this beer. It’s watery but still enjoyable. This is not a perfect beer, but it’s a legendary beer. Canny.

Can. Clear copper body, big beige head with great retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of stalled water, grains, metal can, caramel. Taste of grains, hints of bread crust, burned sugar, toffee and booze. Meh.

Hard to drink but one bottle is pleasure. Not of kind I want to drink every day.

Luneylane (233) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - MAY 28, 2017
A bottle from Padstow Tesco, drunk at room temperature as advised by ’The Beerhunter’. Aroma: bread. Appearance: clear dark brown, head goes away to nothing. Palate: light-bodied and rather thin, soft carbonation. At the finish it tastes sweet and kind of soapy. Taste: medium sweet, probably more satisfying in winter.
