NEWCASTLE BROWN ALE

Newcastle Brown Ale or Newckie Brown. The beer that allegedly made Bill Oddie what he is today.

I could rabbit on like Oz Clarke about how it should be Gatey Brown now that brewery is in Gateshead (maybe the “Sydney Harbour Bridge” on the label is symbolising the move across the Tyne Bridge from Newcastle to Gateshead).

I would love to think that this beer helped a young Eric Burdon to sing the way he did (Boom, Boom), but for that to have happened he would have sung sickly sweet drek.

This beer is yeasty crap. The admission in the ingredients list gives it away: Glucose Syrup, Caramel & Carbon Dioxide.

If you wish to understand Newcastle, listen to some early Animals and ignore this clear bottle shit.
