[quote=“tigerman”]I picked up a couple of these at Breeze today:
Newcastle Brown Ale is one of the only English brown ales that can be found worldwide. Its notable for our purposes, because other than the canned Boddingtons, its the only English ale available in Taiwan.
This beer, despite being somewhat of a mass-produced brew, is really quite good, if imbibed slowly at the right temperature (I think around 13-15 degrees C).
BruneAle and Sheepshagger, anything you two would like to add or contest?[/quote]
Indeed, kind sir. Newkie Broon is traditionally a bottled ale and is traditiionally consumed ifrom ‘pint’ (actually 640ml) bottles poured into a small half-pint glass and topped up until the bottle is empty. Broon Ale purists would not touch the 330 ml ‘export’ bottle, can or draught. I was once taken to an ‘English Pub’ in Santa Monica where my host proudly took me to the bar and pointed at the NBA tap. I politely accepted the offer of a pint but felt obliged to express my cultural reservations at consuming this fine drop in a manner anathema to my upbringing. How about that for an addition?
