It's a travesty
How the F can they call a product "Newcastle Brown Ale" when it's got no links to the toon? As an ex-NBA drinker I'm very, very concerned that it's being moved to Tad. After all, that's the home of John Smith's - a concoction that I regularly hear compared to the contents of a urinal after you've been to the doctors. (The other comment being "it's cheap, wet and gets you drunk - taste is optional").
Moving to Gateshead was fine - after all it's still in the area, so I've got no issue with NBA still holding it's name. But if/when it moves to Tad then seriously they should retire the name and call it something else - how about "the chemical concotion we sell as JS but in a different bottle". Maybe "SellOot Ale" would be a good name? ;)
Oh, by the way - spelling mistake - it's "Dunston" not "Dunstun". Unless this was a jokey spelling and I missed the joke - in which case apologies. IT angle - NBA was the pint (or four) of choice at the end of a shift on the end of a helldesk phone line.
I'm now in a very, very, very bad mood.... >-(
