First brewed in 1927, Newcastle Brown Ale is a unique and stylish premium ale with a distinctive deep red colour and a rich, creamy head.
Delicious, appetisingly dry and fully mature. This beautifully orchestrated variation of Talisker has a lingering finish which cannot outstay its welcome. Nose: Unreduced, a quiet nose, not hugely assertive, yet quite maritime. Fresh ships varnish. Faint nose prickle. Spicy, briny, with distant smoke. Palate: At bottled strength, a gentle start, immediately building in intensity. Slow and sweet, then kicks in peppery and hot, with significant balancing bitterness and salt, and a little smoke. Finish: Long, warming, slightly bitter and very drying, with a little smokiness.
