Newcastle Brown Ale


Newcastle Brown Ale was first brewed in 1927 in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England
Newcastle is the quintessential rich, English brown ale. It is is sweet, malty, somewhat nutty, yet refreshing.

The Beer

Newcastle is, apparently, a blend of two beers (a darker and lighter) brewed to be blended. The recipe I have here is a simple approximation and, admittedly, may be more toward the English Brown style as a whole than an exact replica of the Newcastle example of this style.
