Do people still drink this?
What does it taste like, is it like a ale?

Nukie Brown!

Is it like an ale lol

newcastle brown ale.......................made in Tadcaster !!

Its a bitter really, and one of the only ones that is nice cold. To simulate proper Geordie-ness it should be drunk from a half pint glass in one hand, topped up regularly from the bottle in the other.

I love it but it sends me nutty so I have to consume with care.

Great price btw - cheers!

IMO tastes nothing like a bitter.

I love this though.

Not even made in Newcastle anymore due to the greed of shareholders.

Shareholder demands have closed 3 big breweries in Newcastle/Sunderland over the years.
Vaux, then S&N, then Federation.
ALL were making profits. Not enough for the greedy fatherless shareholders though.

Philk it tastes the same so couldnt give a monkeys tbh I like the drink not Newcastle.

it was made in Gateshead anyway not newcastle I believe.

Newcastle Brown used to be a strong ale
but has gone weaker over the years. I
understand from former colleagues
that the Police Station in Newcastle used
to have a "Special" Brown Ale Cell. Must
have been a real leg wobbler in those days!

Yes, it used to be really strong, was nicknamed and still is called "mad mans brew " Used to be known as a hard mans drink . Still going strong as for some reason it has a status among the studenty types if you see what i mean, not saying all students drink it, no offence meant at all., just younger people in general in that age range is what i mean... Saying that ,Newcastle has a very high student population and i suppose if you are from somewhere else it is a drink that must be tried for the sake of it. Probably a retro thing as well. Also older men who have drunk it for years anyway., ..In reply to where is was made , it was made in Newcastle for as long as i can remember, then it moved somewhere else, not Gateshead, Just recently closed Newcastle breweries.

So Broon moved out of Newcastle in 2005 to Dunston (ie Gateshead)

So all this recent it's not made in Newcastle is old news now.

My fave drink, will ravage the shelf tomoz

Quite useful for drain cleaning, wouldn't try to drink it though, vile. (And I'm a native of the NE)

I used to drink Newcastle Amber Ale, which was a much better beer but didn't have the rather silly mythology surrounding it.

Cheap for what it is and voted accordingly.

Absolutely revolting stuff

Good deal - love this stuff... Puts hair on ya chest on all that...

Absolutely revolting stuff



Please say you didn't vote cold for that reason...

Haven't had this for ages...!

Heat........

Try the pour, put a half glass over the top, turn it all upside down with the glass on the table and let in fill up until the air pressure stops it. Tilt the glass, withdraw the bottle to fill the glass. Drink. Top up.

They also have McEwans No 1 at a quid a bottle 7.3%

Brewed and bottled in Tadcaster, Yorkshire!!


Some people don't half talk some balls!

So this top is produced in 'Leeds' is it? http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-rolleyes010.gif

MMmmm beer............

I am Planner at Tadcaster, and my job to plan NBA production


Oh that's nice for you... what relevance it has here I have no idea!

I know WHERE Newcastle Brown Ale is bloody brewed! My post was with reference to your comment regarding the fact that 'where' it is brewed has some sort of relevance. Thus the comparison with your Rugby team top! Or did that not register a thought in your skull?

Doesn't taste like it used to years ago. Was better when it was made in Newcastle.
Hasn't got the same tang to it. Mind you Double Maxim is a better drink if you can find it or Maximus.
Hard to find down here though.

Used to get hammered on this at University in the early 90's. Memories.

The McEwans No 1 is very strong flavoured, but great to mix with lesser beers to get your bang for your bucks. Too strong (for me) to drink alone, but as a mixer with a cheap 4.5% beer, it works a treat.

Best price ive seen it for in well over a year and Im always on the look out for the best price. Even my local cash and carry is much more expensive. Thanks op will stock up loads

Drank this twice and on both occasions ive ended up mortal and not knowing what the hell went on lethal stuff !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Excellent beer.
Hot

Thanks Op, Haven't had a bottle of dog in years
I wonder if the side effects are the same & i wake up in a hedge?

It was made in Newcastle, S&N breweries.
Then the shareholders closed the S&N brewery in Newcastle. They farmed it out to the Fed brewery in Dunston, Gateshead
then the shareholders closed THAT down
Tadcaster next ?
And whats that old saying ?
They came for the jews first, i didn't care, I wasn't Jewish. Then the gypsies. i wasn't gypsy, then the non-whites...then the catholics, I wasn't catholic then ...but who will object when they come for me ?
Theres a lot of firms being closed to "out source" - no complaints, maybe your job will be outsourced next, eh ?
Crap drink anyways. Always has been overblown. Never drunk it since I was an underaged drinker.
Durham brewery or Mordues.
Ah. Now THAT is beer. Small local breweries far superior to the...er...effluent... S&N did.
Thankfully the non locals don't get it
GOOD
