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.

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.

Nice taste. Good color, finishes a little watery. Generally the best beer at a place with no beer selection. I like it.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - APR 30, 2004
UPDATED: APR 3, 2005 Bottled. Medium brown colour. Some coffee aroma with a bit of skunkiness. Tastes rather bland. Some nutty flavours. Nearly no carbonation. Not a particularly great beer. (2.8) Re-rate: From Tap.No skunkiness, a bit smoother. Decent. (3.0)

UPDATED: APR 13, 2005 One of my favorite beers. You donít get much head with this one, but a decent lace stays at the top until your done. Very smooth tasting ale.

Aroma is a little nutty with a bit of sour/citrus hops. Not a bad looking beer. Medium/dark brown color with a tan head. A little thin looking on the glass. Not a bad beer. Kind of nutty with a hop bitter aftertaste. There's still something missing. It seems that there may need to be more of a malt presence to soften the hop bitterness which doesn't seem to match up well with the initial nutty flavor. Not horrible but I've most definately had better browns.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2004 I like reading the bottle about walking the dog. Redishbrown head. Nutty flavor and sweet. red brown body. I liked it, not going to go nuts for it, but ok.

AlphaOne (142) - AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2004
Brown (obviously) with a thickish fine bubbled head. Aroma is reminiscent of peanut brittle, with more grainy malt and a little hoppiness. Taste light nutty biscuit, a little drying hop bitterness and lingering toasty flavour.

All in all I felt that this was a shitty brown ale. Not half as good as Firehouse Brown Cow Ale or Pete's Wicked Brown Ale. This was too "Heinekenny" tasting.

The best thing about the beer is looking at the funny sayings under the cap. Was way too high priced and now feel cheated for paying for this beer. Hopefully i can pay off the small loan i had to take out to pay for it. Would never buy this beer again
