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.

Watery, metallic, toffee and a bit nutty if you can taste it over the other flavours.

I like it. Brown ales are one of my favorite style and this is a good example of one. Nutty, malty flavr. Easy to drink and not too filleing. A little think but still I like, I like.

This is more metallic and much thinner than I remember it being. The flavours are not that pronounced, nor that great. The famous nutty quality just gives a wierd off flavour.

Good brown ale, looks great in the glass, with a nutty-caramel aroma. Goes down easy and just enough bitterness. Although Iíve had mixed reactions on tap, sometimes a bit too nutty/twiggy for my tates.

Draft. Pours a clear reddish brown, with a little bubbly head. Aroma is light nutty aroma. Flavor is slightly sweet, toffee/nut malt flavor, and an ever so slight bitter finish. Body is quite thin. Drinkability is quite high.

Have lover this stuff for years. Very consistent brewer. Not as " heavy" as some of the other UK ales I have tasted. Love the rich taste. And no after taste.

Amazing that I had never officially rated this stuff. Clear brown, slight head. Bit of a light caramel aroma. Flavor was caramel and a touch of toffee malts, just enough hops to bitter. Fuller bodied than I remembered, and really not bad.

pacman (9) - muncie, Indiana, USA - MAY 1, 2004 does not count
Aroma is sweet and malty with a hint of caramel malt. More of an amber color than brown. Has a smooth, sweet, malty flavor. I donít pick up much of the nut flavor. A good session beer. Very easy drinking. For the price though, itís not really worth it. There are much better brown ales out there for your $$$$.

Bottled. Nutty, bit bitter, be a student and swig it out the bottle, appreciate the taste and ask for a half pint glass - keep topping it up, keep the creamy head going. You have to keep working the Dog to make it a good beer, but itís worth the effort. One of those beers you pray for in the cooler when the pumps are all flat lagers.
