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.

Drank from a bottle. Not that special. The taste is a bit bland. The colour is nice brown.

I never really cared too much for Newcastle. Now that Iíve been drinking brown ales lately to compare, I have to downgrade this brew somewhat. Although it is drinkable, it just doesnít do much for me. Perhaps I donít care for Scottish Brown Ales versus American Brown or Indian Brown, etc. The balance between bitter and sweet just isnít there, as it seems a bit overly bitter....but I think that is just the style, as Oskar Blues Old Chub seemed the same, but a bit better overall. Iíve also noticed that metallic aftertaste. There are better ones out there for the price.

Straight from the bottle. Clear amber/brown color with an off white head. Sweet malt and very slight bitterness aroma. Bittersweet malt, caramel and faint hop flavors. Iíll give it one thing, itís very easy to drink unlike some other shitty brews like Bud, Miller or Coors (not to mention all the other crap Mex beers).

Cerveja acobreada e âmbar, com espuma muito rala e marrom; a cor é viva e convidativa. O aroma é extremamente agradável, com toque de frutas vermelhas silvestres e primaveril. O sabor é muito bem equilibrado, sem destaques óbvios, com álcool presente, porém pouco perceptível e aftertaste agradabilíssimo; refrescante e suave. Aquilo que o aroma promete é cumprido, com o leve toque frutado e uma cerveja muito refrescante. Acredito que vá bem com alimentos leves e em dias de calor. Resumindo, uma inglesa que não chega a ser uma porter devido à leveza, ótima para o dia a dia e para ser tomada em boa quantidade. Só peca pela falta de aveludamento do pálato.

ordybill (598) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - APR 21, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a strong malt flavor but smelled stale Appearance- pours an amber brown with a tan head. Taste- Heavy malt flavor with some caramel but it tastes old Palate- Medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Overall- a truly average beer, pretty forgettable.

panzerwolf (174) - FINLAND - APR 19, 2015
Pours deep, dark amber. A little bit roast and chocolate, a kind of a sweetish bitterness, so neither taste dominates over another too much. Easy and smooth to drink, even if itís not exactly exciting.

2015-04-17 - A nice brown ale from England. Tasted good but just for one. Not so strong.
