Newcastle Brown Ale was first brewed in 1927 in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England, by Jim Porter after three years of development. Production moved from Newcastle to Gateshead at the end of 2004 and to Tadcaster on closure of the Dunston brewery in 2010.

Good light beer but leaves a grassy after taste. Would definitely suggest but would not drink everyday

This beer reminds me of grandmas bread baking. The aromas are of bread and malts. Tastes like bread and honey. A little too syrupy but a good beer nonetheless. Good Beer.

Quite possibly my favorite ale at this time. Very nice draft that looks at good as it tastes. Creamy and smooth, this ale was a great combo with shepherds pie.

My go-to for imports. Itís not the best, but not the worst either. Pours reddish brown from the bottle, a bit of head that quickly dissipates. Nutty and malty, not much hop character, but, then, not really looking for much of one. Works well as a quaffing ale, when you just want alcohol but donít want to get ridiculously drunk in a ridiculously short amount of time. Just shy of session abv. Otherwise, much better than any corn crap you get off the American mass market (which, admittedly, I refuse to try in the first place).

Brown with medium tan head. Malty but somewhat skunky aroma presumably due to clear bottle. Light body. Sweet, caramel, nutty flavor. Could have rated higher if not for poor aroma.

DerGantzel (261) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2016
From tap. Aroma of malt, caramel and hints of fruits and herbs. Brown clear liquid with a fine white head. Medium-high sweetness and light-medium bitterness. Average carbonation, medium body. A very fine pub ale!

I didnít like it. It couldíve been rather good if it were more fizzy. As a brown ale, itís bound to have a strong aroma and taste, but it turned out to be not as good.
