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.
In 2017 the beer was re-branded and production moved to the main Heineken Factory in Zouterwoude.

eRock_2013 (522) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 30, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2014 A classic dark ale. Excellent texture, almost creamy, solid appearance and sweet aroma. Refreshing subtle sweet malty taste, although lingering aftertaste. A comfortable bitterness without any hoppy taste. Not complex, but full bodied and flavorful. Infinitely better on draft than bottled. Clear bottles means high risk for being skunked/lightstruck. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2018 0,33 l Dose. Braunes, schwammiger, stabiler, cremeweißer Schaum, schöne Gardine. Die Optik ist dann auch das Highlight. Riecht relativ neutral, leicht malzig. Schmeckt leicht röstig, künstlich süß.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2018 I worked for Scottish and Newcastle this was a class drink in its day when it was blended from other beers when it had its own brew recipe just went down hill It did have a Jammy marmalade flavour before it went through the pasteuriser always use a half pint glass and keep topping it up to give a good white head enjoy

Clear brown amber pour. Malty aroma, caramel, some honey. Halfway medium sweet, fairly bitter. Watery and thin mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Okay.

Helder roodbruin bier met wit schuim. Geur: redelijk gesloten, mout, ietwat kandij. Smaak: vrij neutraal, wat kandij. Licht tot medium body. Medium koolzuurprikkel. Geen afdronk. Een doordrinker.

If you drink a light beer and then move to this darker brew it will almost taste like coffee. Great beer overall. Great taste I give it a 96/100 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Skunk? Wtf. Watery and boring for a brown. I'd have to check the price. Better be cheap
