The recipe for Newcastle Brown Ale is to change amid US fears it contains a potentially cancer-causing colouring.
Brewer Heineken said the move was prompted by customer concerns about a chemical found in the caramel colouring used to give its distinctive tint.
None of the beer's ingredients are subject to any restrictions, but Heineken said it was "listening to consumer concerns".
It said roasted malts would now be used to achieve a similar colour.
