I have a special place in my heart for Newcastle Brown Ale as it was the beer that introduced me to the world of English Brown Ales in my early twenties. The beer now can be purchased in mini DraughtKegs. Once tapped this beer can be enjoyed fresh for up to 30 days. It pours brown with a nice thick head. Roasted nut notes greet the nose while the backbone of this brew is all malty sweetness. There’s also some caramel lurking in there as well. It holds about ten pints and has an ABV of 4.7 percent making this an appealing session beer for a small group of people. And it’s portable, so you can bring it to the picnic or to the holiday party.
