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.

The first brown ale I've ever tried. It was smooth, aftertaste seemed a little bitter, but didn't last. Not a bad beer.

Used to be my favorite brown until I got into the smaller micros. It's quite light, palate could be stronger. Would suggest the Rogue Hazelnut for those who like the Newcastle -- you'll find Rogue a wonderful alternative..may never want to go back!

I remember this beer as being quite tasty, yet is pretty expensive at around 30 dollars a case. A little sweet. Over all nice taste.

This is my favorite beer. Period. The trace of vanilla drives me up the wall with happiness.

Bottle. First Brown I have tried as I'm looking for something to brew next. I was expecting a little more malty nutty flavor. I think I will try a couple of more in the style before I make up my mind fully.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - APR 14, 2004
Brown to dark red appearance with nice frothy head. Very malty aroma with some metallic notes, might be from the can? Smooth taste, but rather metallic. Decent.

Brown-reddish clear body. Brownish frothy head, fairly lacing and mostly lasting. Malty aroma. Lightly bitter-sweet flavour.

There are obviously much better brown ales out there, but this is very good considering how widely distributed it is. A nice smooth and sweet taste with not much bitterness.

beerlover82 (229) - Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2004
On tap at MGM Grand: poured a dark brownish-red with head that vanishes fast. Aroma is boring, with hints of nutty malt. Tastes the same, but pretty dull and bland. Mouthfeel is decent. Overall not impressed.

fomentateur (110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2004
Newcastle Brown Ale pours somewhat flat with little carbonation appropriate to style. The color is a bright brown not too deep in hue. Slight roasty malt aroma, a hint of wet dog and diacytle. Not alot of mouthfeel, very light in body. Pleasant sweet finish with low bitterness
