Newcastle Founders’ Ale makes debut

Newcastle Founders AlePress Release:

(White Plains, NY) – Newcastle Brown Ale, brewer of the legendary “One & Only,” today announced the release of its fourth Limited Edition brew, Founders’ Ale. Available nationwide for a limited time, this beer tips its hat to the heritage and tradition of Newcastle’s five founding breweries. The introduction also marks the expansion of all Limited Edition brews – Founders’ Ale, Summer Ale, Werewolf and Winter IPA – which are now available nationwide on a rotating basis throughout the year.

Available for the first time in the U.S., Newcastle Founders’ Ale is a full-bodied, drinkable brew with dry, hoppy and roasted flavors. The classic Bitter ale is balanced by subtly sweet aroma notes of caramel and fruit with a short, clean finish.

“The iconic five-point star on our label recognizes the five founding breweries of Newcastle, and this beer further celebrates the legend of our original, hard-working Geordie brewers and patrons,” said Charles van Es, brand director Newcastle Brown Ale. “With Founders’ Ale we are answering consumer demand by offering all of Newcastle’s Limited Editions nationally in 2012, giving everyone a chance to enjoy a bit of authentic English history.”

Brewed with premium malts and Styrian Goldings hops, Newcastle Founders’ Ale has an alcohol by volume (ABV) of 4.8 percent with 20 International Bittering Units (IBUs).

Newcastle Founders’ Ale will be available nationwide from February 2012 through April 2012 in 6-pack and 12-pack bottles priced comparably to Newcastle Brown Ale. Founders’ Ale will also be available on draught at fine pubs in select markets.

  1. I thought I would give it a try as I don’t mind trying different beers and it is actually quite good. I found it in bottles but would love to try it on draught.

  2. It’s OK, nothing special, but different. Kind of an “oily” taste to it. Not a whole lot of aroma hops.

  3. My favorite so far is the new IPA with flavors of pepper, hops, caramel and toffee with a hint of apricot or cherry the Winter IPA is the best so far. I find the Founders Ale to be reminiscent of the original Nut Brown Ale, it has that Muddy after taste that is synonymous with Nut Brown, its also under powered at 4.8.
